Overview

Shrikhand Mahadev Trek is the most toughest pilgrimage in India. This abode of lord Shiva is situated in Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh at height of 17,150 ft (5227 meters) above sea level. It takes about seven days to finish and offers one of the most breathtaking views. The journey is difficult, and flora and animals can be seen along the way, making it even more attractive. The view from the peak is breathtaking. July to September is the best time to attempt the Shrikhand Mahadev trek.

The peak resembles Shivaling and it was believed that Lord Shiva meditated and the Pandavas used to visit this peak.  According to administration, Shivaling is around 75 foot long and 46 foot in breadth. One of the five Kailash, which is claimed to be Lord Shiva’s residence, is the most important Shrikhand Mahadev.

The Shrikhand Mahadev Trek is regarded as a challenging trek. The hike reaches a height of over 17,000 feet. There is a significant altitude climb, from Jaon to Shrikhand Mahadev (17,000 feet), which requires very strong lungs. The Shrikhand Mahadev hike necessitates a high level of cardiovascular fitness. And you might be considering how to strengthen your lungs? To begin, go for a jog every day. Begin jogging slowly and gradually increase your speed. As a result, cardiovascular endurance exercises are highly vital for making your lungs stronger than before.

The Workouts

  • Walking with a 10kg rucksack strapped on your back is a terrific way to shape your legs and body. It aids in the burning of calories, the reduction of excess weight, and the strengthening of your body.
  • For high ascents, stair climbing is the finest workout. Include it in your training routine.
  • Jogging can help you live longer by strengthening your lungs and improving your lifetime. It’s a high-intensity aerobic activity that necessitates a lot of oxygen. This is an excellent activity for preventing weight and maintaining good health.
  • Squats are the most effective functional exercise for improving balance. Legs, thighs, hips, and hamstrings are also strengthened.
  • Pull-ups, push-ups, sprints, mountain climber, burpee, jumping jacks, and 60-second plank (3-5 sets each).
  • Pushing your body upstairs after stair climbing is another fantastic cardiovascular exercise. This is often considered to be the most effective workout for improving strength and power. Carrying an 18kg pack also helps a lot.
  • Finally, remember to pamper your body with some breathing exercises, Yoga, and Meditation.
  • For the best outcomes, eat well, stay hydrated, and get enough of rest.
  • Take proper rest and sleep before coming to Shrikhand Mahadev Trek

Remember to bring appropriate clothing, remain hydrated, and stay warm to properly acclimate.

Wonderful Shrikhand Mahadev

This was our first experience with Heaven Riders and I must say it was wonderful. the ever polite team leaders Vishal and Aditya made sure that everyone in the group was well looked after. Infact they went out of their way in bringing not only their group People but even other trekkers safely down from Shrikhand Kailash. I surely will recommend and will take their services in future too. Overall a very satisfying and a happy experience with Heaven Riders.

Shree khand mahadev in July 2018

Did Shreekhand mahadev trek with HRI in July 2018 with bunch of my friends. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Our trek leader Vishal Thakur is one of the best trek leaders u will come across. He was very polite , friendly and a true leader who leads from the front. he was guiding us every now and while and helping and motivating each one of us. As it a very strenuous trek it does require a lot of effort but team HRI was very motivating and made sure we all reached the summit healthy, fit and fine and paid our prayers and tribute to lord Shiva. All the facilities provided were excellent and team HRI made sure it remains a never forgetting experience for all of us. Looking forward to have more thrilling experiences with team HRI. OM NAMAH SHIVAYA
