Haridwar is a holy city located in the state of Uttarakhand in India. Surrounded by the mighty Himalayas and with the River Ganges meandering through the city, Haridwar is regarded as the doorway to heaven. Every year millions of pilgrims visit Haridwar to bathe in the holy waters of the Ganges and the holy Ghat of Har-Ki-Pauri is revered for its spectacular show of the Sandhya Aarti – where every evening lakhs of people gather around Ganges to see the temple chieftains offering prayers to the holy river. The river gets illuminated by hundreds of diyas or lamps and is an invigorating sight to experience.

Pilgrims visit Haridwar to pay patronage to the temples of Chandi Devi and Mansa devi located at a hilltop a little distance from the main city. Sightseeing tours in Haridwar to the temples are a major tourist hotspot and one can reach the temples via cable car rides operated from Haridwar itself. The town of Haridwar still retains a beautiful charm where street hawkers sell everything starting from noodles to momos, thukpas to pasta, but everything that you get in this city is strictly vegetarian. The main streets are lined with hordes of old ashrams and little shops selling religious sculptures, curios and souvenirs.

Haridwar does not restrict itself to its religious offerings, the town is a gateway to major hill stations in Uttarakhand like Rishikesh, Dehradun and Mussoorie. Haridwar is also the base to many important treks around the region like the Chopta-Tunganath Trek, Har-ki-Dun Trek, Roopkund Trek, Chopta Chandrashila Deoriatal Trek, Dayara Bugyal Trek and many more prominent treks. During the months of May to October is the Yatra period of the city when thousands of Shiva devotees, known as Kanwarias, head for sightseeing tours in Haridwar to pay their homage and respects to the place.

This was my maiden trek and I am glad I chose Valley of Flowers and Hemkund Saheb. I carried home tonnes of great memories from the trip that I will cherish for my life. Serene Nature, Splendid weather, a great company of cousins, new friends we made and the team who lead the trek made a perfect mixture to cherish. While the chirpy young kept the team charged, the conviction of the others was inspirational to the rest. I am also glad that Thrillophillia conducts this trip which I came to know after reading thrillophilia reviews. The field team lead by Yogi and Sandeep was awesome. At some point or other everyone in the group were amazed with their knowledge, patience, perseverance, untiring efforts to make the trip a memorable and comfortable one for the entire team. Their daily briefing was quite interesting. Valley of flowers amazed us with the nuances it offered every minute. The continuous rain, the chill of the breeze, narrow steep path, rolling stones, changing landscape every minute, moving clouds around you, crossing the river over narrow bridges…. The list goes on and on Hemkund Saheb is another marvel. This place left most of the team members ecstatic. What a bliss. The only place I have seen made many people cry with joy. A place that one must visit atleast once in their lifetime. The trek(mule ride), the hospitality at the Gurudwara were breathtaking. It was a testimony to what faith can bring out of people. We could see people of all age groups from 3 to 70+ trek all the way from Govindghat to Hemkund Saheb, carrying children and luggage on shoulders and sometime on mules. Wow… We were exposed to a new world of Ghangaria which come alive in March and sleeps over from October. A town that has everything active only for 4 months.
"it was incredible experience. VOF is famous for its 80 and more rare flowers species. trek was 12000 ft above from the sea level. It was not easy but when I saw the colors of flowers it inspired me to go ahead and explored more.."

So we were a group of 10. First were skeptical about how the trip would be manged by them as it was our first time plus everyone was about 50 year age but once we reached there evrything looked well managed and the staff was very nice and friendly. They explained everything to us very nicely. When the trek got a bit difficult for couple of them, subhash and jaydeep were very helpful. Special thanks to them. Ofcourse the trek is beautiful and no doubt about that.
"If a passing cloud, a sight of a waterfall, lush green landscape, or a cool breeze makes you crazy, then this is the perfect trek for you. If you dream about walking through green forests, valleys, trekking by the side of flowing rivers, touching mountain tips and snow peaks enveloped in rain and clouds, then this trek will make all your dreams come true. No camera or video cam can catch even 10 percent of the actual beauty of the pure serene wonderful landscape created by God with special care to be a feast for the eyes of nature lovers. So all you see in photos and videos is nothing when compared to what actually one feels during the trek. Don't forget to taste the purest coolest tastiest spring water which takes away the strain n tiredness from your body. But don't worry. a guide is always with you throughout the trek to tell you all the details and to watch your every step. Thanks to Thrillophilia for making the trek most comfortable and memorable. But more care can be taken about the food provided during the stay. Overall it's a compulsory trek which none of the nature lovers can miss."
the street food of Haridwar will definitely bring me back to the city for sure... the trip was very well planned and we were right on time to enjoy the Ganga arti.. a must thing to experience in a life time. and a road trip to Mussoorie was a cherry on the cake.
I booked this helicopter package for my parents and they had a wonderful time there. They were highly satisfied & happy with their holy trip. The arrangements of stay, meals, transport all were well taken care of. They had proper darshan at all the temples. Thanks for the memorable trip
Recently I went to Chardham yatra with my family and it was such an amazing experience. The facilities provided were really good, the rooms were nice, the food provided was also good, the driver was very humble and nice. It was an amazing experience to take a bath in hot springs. We had a proper visit in all the temples, I was mesmerized by the Kedarnath temple, the positive vibes of the entire trip was much needed. Thanks, for the wonderful experience.

Thrillophilia had arranged a private departure for our group as we only want to visit the valley of flowers as we do not have 6 days time with us. The trek was very well coordinated and perfectly arranged. We had enjoyed our time during the trek.

We had visited the trek in August month which was the peak time to go there and it was raining heavily during the trek. Thrillophilia has experienced guides and even in that heavy rain, we were able to complete the trek. The hotel stay during the trek was decent and the food provided was nutritious and good. Overall the trek was worth a visit and Thrillophilia arranged it very professionally.
