Our annual Events follow the Hindu calendar –  Mahashivarathri, Vasantha Navarathri (Rama Navami),  Sharada Navarathri or Durga Pooja and Diwali. All events happen at Shivanandam Nivas, Kangra in the divine presence of Sri Shivananda.

Shrikhand Mahadev Yatra: In July every year, the Shrikhand Mahadev Yatra happens. This is a 3-4 days trek to the Shrikhand Mahadev peak at 5227 metres. The Yatra starts at Kangra and follows the path from the Nirmand – Joan village, a trek of 70 kms through mountains, glaciers and the rivers. The Yatra is scheduled in July of every year.
