About holy Shrikhand Mahadev

Shrikhand Mahadev is a pilgrimage place for Hindus. Shrikhand Mahadev is considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva। Its peak is 5155 mt. high. So it is a place of great attraction for the religious people as well as for climbers. To reach to this place one has to reach Jaon village of Nirmand. The Shrikhand peak is visible on the eastern side of the village. There is a miracle known about the Shivalinga here. Round the year the snow falls here, but it does not stay at the Shivalinga and melts down soon thereafter.
Gods stay in many places including our hearts. Shrikhand Mahadev is one such place. A place of pilgrimage for Hindus, Shrikhand Mahadev is considered to be another abode of Lord Shiva. So it lures climbers as well as religious devotees. And moreover Shrikhand Mahadev is a part of the Great Himalaya National Park where the thick mountain forests and the high altitude meadows are protected and hence can blossom into perfection. The long-established villages along the way are far from the roads and have an equally preserved and pristine way of Himalayan life in the mountains. Here architecture, dress and custom haven’t changed for many generations.
