VALLEY OF FLOWER TOUR
(11 DAYS VALLEY OF FLOWER TOUR)
Hardwar or haridwar are two names for the same piece. The whole of uttrakhand is dotted with temples of vishnu & shiva. Vishnu is known as hari and shiva as har dwar means gate, and it is for this reason that this place is known as haridwar or hardwar, as it is the gateway to shri badrinath and shri kedarnath, the holy shrines of hari and har. The hindu pantheon allows freedom of worship of gods in any form. Uttarakhand abounds in shrines of gods & goddesses and haridwar from time immemorial has been the gateway to these shrines.
RISHIKESH
Rishikesh is situated on the trisection of three districts of garhwal division and most of the city lies on the right bank of the River Ganga, the place of sages is a celebrated spiritual town on the bank of ganga and is surrounded by shivalik range of the himalayas on three sides, it is said that when raibhya rishi did hard penances, god appeared by the name of hrishikesh and this area henceforth came to be known as rishikesh.
It is the starting point for the char dham pilgrimage of the hindus in which pilgrims go to yamunotri, gangotri, kedarnath and badrinath to seek spiritual salvation. On the way to the garhwal himalayas and the sikh shrine at hemkund sahib one passes rishikesh.

HEMKUND SAHIB
Known as the "Sanctum Santorum" of India, this is the area in which, since times immemorial, the great religious teachers and sages have retreated to seek communion with the Great Unknown in an effort to wrest the secrets of enternal life and uplift of the soul of man. Here, 976 metres above, the VAlley of jFlowers, at a height of (15,200 ft) on the shores of Hemkund Lokpal, sheltered by seven snow-clad peaks of gigantic mounts, Hemkund Parvat, came the last of the Sikh Gurus, Gobind Singh to meditate and seek peace for his tortured soul. This lake is a great pilgrimage place for the Sikhs. In the Guru Granth Sahib, Guru Govind Singh made a reference--that in one of his previous births he had mediteated on the shorts of a lake which was surrounded by seven snow-covered peaks. In 1930, Havildar jSohan Singh discovered this lake, and identified it with the one referred to the in the Guru Granth sahib.
