Hemkund Sahib reopens for pilgrims
Gopeshwar: Portals of the famous Sikh shrine of Hemkund Sahib were on Friday reopened after a gap of more than six months, official sources said.
Situated at a height of over 15,000-feet, the Hemkund Sahib was reopened by religious leaders and trustees of the Gurudwara, with hundreds of pilgrims witnessing the ceremony amid extreme cold.
The pilgrimage to Hemkund Sahib Gurudwara is one of the toughest journeys and one has to take an arduous trek of 21 km to reach there.
During winters, the Gurudwara remains closed for pilgrims as the area remains snow-bound.
