trek starts from Govindghat (19 kms.), on the way to Badrinath,
having two major gradients, one initially from Alakhnanda suspension
bridge of Govindghat to Pulna village, for 3 kms. and the other from
Bhyundhar to Ghangharia. After trekking 1 kms from Ghangharia, a
bifurcation point is reached, where one route leads to
Hemkund Saheb and
the other goes to the
Valley of Flowers.
The routes are well marked here.
