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. Its peak is 5155 metres high. So it lures climbers as well as religious devotees. To reach to this place one has to reach Jaon village of Nirmand. The Shrikhand peak is visible from the eastern side of the village. And according to the locals there is site to see a miracle here. There is a Shivalinga here. All round the year the snow falls thick and fast here, but it does not cover the Shivalinga and melts to its bottom.
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.
