Mansa Devi Temple

Manasa Devi Temple seems to have a significant space among the minds of the devotees of Shakti, the goddess this temple is dedicated to. Perched on the top of Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the temple offers a splendid view of the mighty Ganges and the holy city of Haridwar. Rather than being a pilgrim centre, the temple makes its value higher among the adventure seekers as well because, the temple is accessible either only by trekking the high altitude or taking the recently established rope way. Chandi Devi Temple located very close to this shrine attracts a large number of devotees everyday as there is a belief that the two forms of Goddess Parvati, Mansa and Chandi stay close to each other.

Yamunotri

Being the source of the River Yamuna, Yamunotri has a lot of significance in history as well. It is situated at a height of 3293 meters. Yamunotri is considered to be the supreme among the four sites of India’s Chhota Char Dham pilgrimage. The temple dedicated to Goddess Yamuna is the prime attraction here along with the charming holy thermal springs at Janki Chatti. It was constructed by Maharaja Pratap Shah of Tehri Garhwal. The whole location arranges the best features such as lush green meadows, glacier sights and revamping climate throughout the year. But majorly, the difficulty to reach the top extends a thrilling experience to those who love adventure and escapades. You can reach the location by walking through the rugged plains and roads, 6 KM from Hanuman Chatti and 4 KM from Janki Chatti.

I have been to Kedarnath trek (4-3-2017 to 9-3-2017) along with my friends. I really appreciate you guys for making this trek a memorable one and immensely grateful for having spent the best time of my life (till date). Even though, inopportunely six members cancelled their trip at the last moment Hike to the Himalayan members didn’t cancel/postponed the trek and this is quite imposing and an invaluable display of great gestures. The accommodation and transport facilities provided to us were impeccable. The food was extremely good and our guide ( Mr Guddu Singh Rawat) is well versed in handling each and every situation gingerly. It was an amazing experience and I would like to mention that I will definitely rely on your team for my future adventures.

What began as an adventure getaway for me, turned out to be, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The landscape across the ride is magnificent, from rocky mountains to pine forests, every inch of our trip was fascinating. One of the most cherished experience would be when we camped at night in cozy tents, and cooked food over a camp fire right in the heart of a forest:) We explored Nelong Valley, went for crazy adventure sports in Rishikesh and even conquered the Vasundhara Falls trek. I've returned back from the trip with memories to last me a lifetime and counting down to the moment I can go back :)

What an experience it was. we came across a lot of greenery items in between that was looking cool but were poisonous. The trail was marked and guide was with us so the whole experience was like exploring any known world. Snaps we took at the peak was great, behind us was a cloudy view, making the photographs awesome.

Camping is something that was long forgotten after school. Recently, I happened to camp at Auli and it was the best thing ever. I had an amazing vacation. The camp was well organized and well managed. I really loved my vacation to the core. The best time to do camping here is in summer. It is a good vacation spot to take your children to.

i had always heard of places like manali and ladakh but this place was no lesser than heaven, we had camped in a valley beside a river and the view was so beautiful i cannot express in few words. Snow covered mountains all around and the cool flowing river covered with rich vegetation . it is one of the best place in India.
