Located in the mountains of Uttaranchal is the Sikh pilgrimage site of Hemkund Sahib. Not only a sanctuary for religious pursuits, this glacial lake fed by streams and surrounded by seven snow capped mountains is a treat for the soul and sight alike.
Inaccessible during the winter months, Hemkund Sahib is situated on a glacial lake and fringed by majestic mountains. It is believed that the 10th Sikh Guru meditated on the banks of the Hemkund Lake in one of his previous births, and hence this site is an important pilgrimage for the Sikhs. The Indian epic of Ramayana also mentions Hemkund as the site where Lakshman meditated to restore himself to health after he was severely wounded in a fight with Meghanath. There is an ancient Lakshman Temple here, frequented by Hindu pilgrims. Accessible only by foot, travellers undertake a 13 km long trek to Hemkund from Gobindghat on the Rishikesh-Badrinath highway.
