Hem means “Ice” and Kund means “Bowl”. Hemkund Sahib is the famous Gurudwara in the Chamoli District of Uttarakhand in India. It is devoted to the tenth Sikh Guru named as Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Each year thousands of devotees come here to take holy dip in HemKund. It is a lake surrounded by seven mountain peaks at the height of around 4632 meters from the sea level. It closes down in the winter season due to snowbound path.
