It is located in the northern Himalayan ranges at an altitude of 3049 meters in Uttarakhand state of India. It is also known as Govinddham.

Ghangaria is situated on the bank of the river Lakshman Ganga. It is the last human habitation in this tiny valley. This place is usually used by travelers as a base camp to visit Hemkund and Valley of flowers. It is only open from May till September. The rest of the year the valley is covered under 8 feet of snow.
