Haathi Parva


Haathi Peak (Elephant Peak) lies in Garhwal Himalayas in the Chamoli District of Uttrakhand state. Haathi Peak can be reached from Ghangaria which is close to Valley of flowers.[2] Nearby places are Bhiundhar, Jelam, Shyama and Juma. The Dhauliganga River flows nearby.



Two huge rocks on a spur of Haathi Parvat are described as a crow (Kaaka) and an Eagle (Garuda).   The locals believe that the crow is animatedly conversing with Garuda   on the affairs of the universe. Another version has it that a learned   Brahmin of Ayodhya once incurred the wrath of the sage Lomas who lived here and was changed into the form of crow by the sage.

To Reach 

Haathi Peak can be reached from Ghangaria or Visnuprayag. The   approach from Ghangaria is a little easier but longer. From Govind-Ghat,   there is a 18 km bridle path which runs through the Bhiundar or   Bhuyandar valley and Bhiundhar village up to Ghangaria. Kagbhusandi Tal & Guari Parvat Lies in the vicinity of Haathi Peak.

Shivling is a mountain in the Gangotri Group of peaks in the western  GarhwalHimalaya, near the snout of the Gangotri Glacier. It lies in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, 6 kilometres (4 mi) south of the Hindu holy site of Gaumukh (the source of the Bhagirathi River). Its name refers to its status as a sacred symbol of the god Shiva. It was called "Matterhorn Peak" by early European visitors because of its similarity in appearance to that Alpine   peak. While not of locally great elevation, it is a dramatic rock peak,   and most visually striking peak seen from Gaumukh; that and the   difficulty of the climb make it a famed prize for mountaineers. Shivling forms the western gateway for the lower Gangotri Glacier,   opposite the triple-peaked Bhagirathi massif. It lies on a spur   projecting out from the main ridge that forms the southwest side of the   Gangotri Glacier basin; this ridge contains other well-known peaks such   as Bhrigupanth, Thalay Sagar and Meru.

It was also called Mahadeo Ka Linga or (Mahadev Ka Linga) Appearing   as a single pyramid when seen from Gaumukh, Shivling is actually a   twin-summitted mountain, with the northeast summit being slightly higher   than the southwest summit, 6,501 m (21,329 ft). Between Gaumukh and   Shivling lies the Tapovan meadow, a popular pilgrimage site due to its inspiring view of the mountain.
Shivling is well-defended on all sides by steep rock faces; only the   west flank has a moderate enough slope for snow accumulation.[4]

Swargarohini is a mountain massif in the Bandarpunch Range of the Garhwal Himalaya. It lies in the Uttarkashi District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, west of the Gangotri   group of peaks. It comprises four separate peaks; Swargarohini I is the   main peak, and is the subject of this article. While not particularly   high by Himalayan standards, and not the highest in the Bandarpunch   range, Swargarohini I is notable for its dramatic local relief. For   example, its north face drops 2,000 metres (6,560 ft) in less than   2 kilometres (1.2 mi) of horizontal distance, and its south face   achieves the same drop in less than 3 kilometres (1.9 mi). This makes it   a steep and challenging climb. Swargarohini I has two summits, east and   west. The east summit is given an elevation of 6,247 m (20,495 ft),   slightly lower than the west summit. However the first ascensionists of   the west summit claim that that summit is the higher of the two.

Legends & History  Swargorhini derives it names from the Legends associated with that it peaks forms the path to heaven that was followed by Pandavas, Draupadi & their Dog.According to Legends its believed that is only way one can go to heaven with human body itself.
