Garhwal known as "Dev Bhoomi" The Land of God and has always been associated with spirituality, temples, pilgrimage, holy shrines and mountain tourism. The whole land of garhwal is always alive and vibrates with the music of chiming bells, bathing people at various Ghats, chanting of Hymns, song of local folks during festivals and fairs. 
Most of the temples in Garhwal are associated with some Puranic or Mahabharata story. There is no specific pattern to the construction of these temples and most of them are devoted to Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Goddess Kali and Nanda Devi along with the temples of local gods and goddesses. The history of Garhwal  is older  than  that  of the Ramayan and Maha- bharata. In earliest times, Garhwal was known as Kedarkhand, or the region of Kedarnath. Scriptural texts mention a number of tribes that inhabited the region, such as the Sakas, the Nagas, Khasas, Hunas and Kiratas.

Lamkhaga Pass Trek, A Beautiful & Thrilling Journey.....

Without any delay we started our 185 km long road journey to Uttarkashi. It was a trip after a short period when Uttarakhand witnessed flood devastation in the month of June. The roads were badly affected in almost region of the state. I was scared and surprised how driver was driving our cab on such narrow, damaged & treacherous roads. But the stunning view of deep gorge, greenish mountains, fresh & cool air and Scenic drive along the Bagirathi River vitalize me.
