Hemkund is situated in Chamoli, Uttarakhand. It is a famous pilgrimage centre of the Sikhs. The holy place is located at an elevation of 15200 ft above sea level and can be reached on foot from Govindghat. Hemkund gets its name from the two Sanskrit words, Hem and Kund that means snow and bowl, respectively. What makes Hemkunt unique is its location amidst seven mountains, each of them is festooned with Nishan Sahib, a holy triangular flag of the Sikhs. The seven-peaked mountain is touted as Saptashrungi.
According to a mythological tale, this is the same place where the tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji meditated for years and years.
