Skywatch Friday - Hemkund Sahib, Himalayas

The shrine of Hemkund Sahib is one of the holiest shrines for Sikhs. The location and setting of the shrine is so spectacular, you can actually feel the divine when you reach there after an arduous trek. 

We were there two years back as a part of our trek to Valley of Flowers in Indian Himalayas. It was raining when we started the trek and after an arduous trek of 6 KMs wherein you climb from 11000 feet to 15,000 feet. It was a "wow" feeling when we saw the glimpse of the shrine. Soon the clouds enveloped the whole area. We were not fortunate to enjoy the magnificent setting of the shrine as you can see in the picture below. 

Few clouds and their reflection in the pristine waters of the lake adds to the beauty of surroundings on a clear day.
For complete detail of our trek experience to Hemkund Sahib, you may look at the following post in the blog.
