“India ( भारत )” a land of religious values and historical achievements is today first choice for foreign visitors. In this short note I am going to discuss one of the best tourist attraction located in Uttarkashi region of India known as Barkot.  This amazing spot is 1,220 meters above from the sea level comes under Uttarakhand state. It is the famous location of north-east India. 

अगर आपने चार धाम यात्रा के बारे मैं सुना है तो आपको बरकोट की बारे मैं भी सुना होगा (If you have heard about the Char Dham Yatra of India then you might know about the Barkot place). 

Its just 49 kms away from Yamunotri Dham. You can view the Bander Poonch hill and other hill areas from the Barkot. Experts suggest this place as most exciting and adventurous for nature lovers. if you like trekking then Barkot could be the first choice for you, just go through the mentioned tourist spots of the city. 

The gushing water of Yamuna River flows in huge speed. However, you will get the areas where you can swim in Yamuna water but remember one thing the temperature of Barkot is also low. For my Indian brothers and sister a short description is present in Hindi language. 

अगर आपको सेब के पेड़ देखने हैं तो बरकोट एक बहुत अछी जगह है. यहाँ पर आपको घने जंगल देखने को भी मिलेंगे. लकिन आप जरा सावधानी बरते ताकि आप इतने अछे जगह का पूरा मजा ले सके. बरकोट पहुच कर आप ऊँचे पहाड़ियों का मजा ले सकते हैं. यह पिकनिक स्तल बहुत ही आकर्षक है और यह आपके छुट्टियों को बहुत मजेदार बना देगा. सबसे अछी बात बरकोट के बारे मैं यह है के यहाँ आप सस्ते होटल मैं बुकिंग कर सकते हैं. इसका मतलब है के आप को बजट भी जयादा नहीं होगा. तो आपने पूरे परिवार के साथ इस जगह जरूर घूमने जाएँ. यहाँ पर आक यमुना नदी का मजा भी ले सकते हैं लकिन याद रहे नदी का पानी बहुत बहाव से बेहटा है.

Nature lovers are reaching this spot regularly so if you are the one who missed or yet not visited the Barkot city then you must plan your holidays to this spot. Reaching Barkot between April to November is preferred by the experts. You can enjoy the Snowfall in winter season however its not easy to spend time at Barkot due to high windy temperature. You must carry the worm clothes if you are visiting the Barkot in winters. Monsoon season is little difficult period to reach the spot because maximum roads get block due to landslides.

Surya kund is one of the ponds located in Barkot area that is famous for natural springs. It comes under the Yamunotri area. 

"सूर्य कुंड का पानी 1900F के तापमान पर रहता है. इतना के आप उस्मैन एक आलू उबाल सकते हो. लकिन प्रकृति का खेल देखो अगर आप उसमें स्नान करेगे तो आप को कुछ नहीं होगा और आपके शरीर के सारे रॉग मिट्ट जायेंगे."

The temperature of water of this kund is 1900F and you can easily boil potatoes into this water. However, if you take bath in this pond you won’t get any harm.
