Legend

Two huge rocks on a spur of Hathi Parbat are described as a crow (Kakabhushundi) and an eagle (Garuda). It is believed that the crow is animatedly conversing with eagle on the affairs of the universe as it's described in Ramayana. Another version has it that a learned Brahmin of Ayodhya once incurred the wrath of the sage Lomasa who lived here and was changed into the form of crow by the sage.

Access

Hathi Parbat can be reached from Vishnuprayag or Ghangaria, which is close to Valley of Flowers. The approach from Ghangaria is a little easier but longer. From Govindghat, there is an 18 km bridle path which runs through the Bhyundar valley and Bhyundar village up to Ghanghariya. Kakbhushundi Tal & Guari Parvat Lies in the vicinity of Hathi Parbat. Nearby places are Bhyundar, Jelam, Shyama and Juma. The Dhauliganga River flows nearby.
