Thrills and chills move you inside out, also as one can feel the effusion scenic of mountains all around. Located at an altitude of 5595 meters / 18350 ft height, Shrikhand Mahadev Peak creates an aura of a Shivling. It is believed that Lord Shiva meditated at this peak and it was visited by Pandavas as well. The peak offers engrossing views of nature. The surrounding snow-covered peaks add to the natural charm of the place. The trek to Shrikhand Mahadev is a treat for adventurers, nature lovers, and spirituality seekers. At the top of Shrikhand Mahadev, there is a small shrine of Lord Shiva that is visited by the devotees to a great extent.
