Ghangaria is a scenic hamlet perched at an altitude of 3,050mts above sea level in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand state. It is the last human habitation centre on the way to Hemkund Sahib and the Valley of Flowers. Ghangaria is the confluence of Pushpawati and Hemganga River, which is then called Lakshman Ganga. Govind Ghat is situated on NH58 on the banks of Alaknanda River and acts as the commencement point of the trek to Ghangharia.
Ghangharia can be reached after an easy trek of 13kms from Govind Ghat. It is likely that you will fall in love with the beautiful mountains and cascading waterfalls enroute. The 10kms trek from Govind Ghat will end up in a bridge, and the further 3kms from the bridge to Ghangharia is steep. The region is prone to heavy snowfall during winters, therefore the region remains closed from December - April. A Gurudwara, GMVN rest houses and a few more private hotels provide accommodation facility at Ghangaria.
