Hemkund Sahib will open on 21st September, 2013.
Just returned back from Govindghat and a good news that Hemkund Sahib Gurudwara will officially open on 21st September, 2013 and will close on 10th October, 2013. I went to Govindghat in second week of September and just returned few days back. The bridge over Alaknanda at Govindghat is already construed and ponies are crossing it comfortably.
At Govindghat the scene was full of destruction the river bed which increased at the time of flood also went to its normal height and now the river is flowing like a small stream. The construction work of trek was in full swing. Now the trek between Govindghat and Ghangaria is constructed since there was no damage to the trek between Ghangaria and Hemkund Sahib the trek between Govindghat and Hemkund Sahib is open now.
There were some vehicles which were parked at Govindghat but fortunately they didn’t washed off in the flood. There is no hope of getting constructed a road to these vehicles. So people are coming getting their vehicles disassembled into parts and taking those parts to the motorable road and getting them assembled again to save their vehicle.
While coming back from Govindghat we stopped at Vishnuprayag where Dhauliganga River meets Alaknanda River. I was with my wife and Mr. Raghuvir Chauhan, fortunately Mr. Raghuvir Chauchan saw some beautiful Deer on the Hathi Parvat. We were really festinated and saw them for a while.
We also saw some beautiful birds also on our trip.
So finally a good news has come that the trek from Govindghat to Ghangaria is OK and soon the bridge over Pushpawati River near Ghangaria will also be built and we can have access to Valley of Flowers. But it sure that this year we will not be able to enter the Valley of Flowers. It is also true that next year we will definitely go to Valley of Flowers. I will go to Hemkund Sahib in first week of October if anyone is interested to come along with me can contact me.
