How to plan a trek from Govindghat to Hemkund Sahib

Govindghat is well-connected to other parts of Uttarakhand via roads. From Govindghat, you can either plan a 14 km trek to Ghangaria, which is the basecamp, or take mules and dolis. Recently, a helicopter service was also started between Govindghat and Ghangaria. On the last 6 km of the journey, the trek is pretty steep. The scenic beauty of the region makes it worthwhile.

Most people club a Govindghat to Hemkund Sahib trek with Valley of Flowers. To reach Valley of Flowers, you have to come back to Ghangaria, and proceed on a 4 km trek. It’s worth mentioning that a lot of trekkers prefer to visit the valley prior to taking overnight rest in Ghangaria and moving on to Hemkund Sahib. This gives you a chance to do the less tiring Valley of Flowers trek first, before moving on to the harder route.

Since the trek for the 6 km is pretty steep, it’s highly recommended to plan it under the guidance of seasoned trekkers. This makes sure you have the best time on your journey without compromising safety. In case you’re planning a combined trek of the Valley of Flowers and Hemkund Sahib, you can get in touch with our experienced trekkers. Simply click here to get more information.
