Girnar Parikrama

With Datar Parvat and Navnath Dhuni

6 Days / 5 Nights

introduction

As we all know Girnar is the home abode of Lord Guru Dattatreya, but beyond that it is also an important place of worship for Nath Sampradaya and Jain sect. It is in this very region of Girnar that 64 Yoginis, 84 Siddhas and several Sadhus and Saints reside and are in a continous mode of meditation and penance.

It is customary to do a Circumambulation to the Girnar mountain range - basically a 'Pradakshina' and often known as 'Parikrama'. Girnar Parikrama is said to bear fruits as you do a Pradakshina to all the saints, sadhus, Gods and Godesses who reside in the Girnar mountain range. This Girnar Parikrama, also known as the 'Lily Parikrama' is only open for 5 days in a year before Kartiki pournima. This Girnar Parikrama is done only through the Girnar Jungles which otherwise are not allowed by the Forest department for anyone to go in. Several Lakhs of people do this Girnar Parikrama every year which is an amazing display of Faith. The length of the Girnar Parikrama is about 38 kms starting from Rupayatan and ending at Girnar Talethi.

Girnar Parikrama with EziiTours is interesting. In our Girnar Parikrama we intend to explore many parts of Girnar and not just the parikrama alone. Our Girnar Parikrama plan allows you to pay a visit to the near by Datar Mountain which is a holy place for the Nath Sampradaya and also visit Nath Dhuni. The trek to Nath Dhuni is of moderate difficulty. The second day of our trip we actually do the reverred Girnar Parikrama. This Girnar Parikrama is of 36 kms - however due to non availability of autos we have to walk 2 kms more.

Many think that Girnar Parikrama is undoable however we have successfully conducted several Girnar Parikrama's till date. We try to make Girnar Parikrama easy by effective planning and coordination. We ensure safety of our travellers during the Girnar Parikrama

EziiTours gladly brings to you Girnar Parikrama 2017 - Akhand Girnar Darshan

VERY well planned tour.... awesome facility.....accommodation and food service is good.....you guys are doing good job..... I enjoyed lot.....thank you EziiTours.....

EziiTours बरोबर मी गिरनार वारी केली होती...कधीही न विसरता येईल असा सुंदर अनुभव ह्या वारी मधे आला... मी व्यक्तीश: चेतन चे आभार मानतो की त्याने ह्या ठिकाणाचे दर्शन उत्तम रितीने घडवुन आणले.. चेतनच्या पुढील सहलिंना शुभेच्छा..

सौराष्ट्रात काठेवाड प्रांतात जुनागड संस्थानात गिरनार पर्वत स्थित आहे..साधू संतांच्या वास्तव्याने पुनीत झालेल्या या पर्वतावर दत्तगुरूंचा नित्य निवास असतो.दत्तगुरूंच्या कृपाशिर्वादाची अनुभूति घेण्यासाठी गिरनारला इजी टूरसोबत जरूर भेट द्या. जय गिरनारी पार लगा दो नैय्या हमारी

सर्वात प्रथम तुमचे मनापासून आभार की तुमच्यासोबत मला द्वारका-सोमनाथ-गिरनार ही ट्रिप करायला मिळाली. खुप दिवसांपासून गिरनार दर्शन करायचं मनात होतं ते तुमच्यामुळे शक्य झाले. बाकी तुमच्या सर्व्हिसबद्दल सांगायचे तर खूप उत्तम दर्जाची सर्व्हिस मिळाली. एक धार्मिक ट्रिप असून सुद्धा कुठल्याही प्रकारची कमतरता नव्हती. पुण्यापासूनचा एकूण प्रवास, जेवण, हॉटेल या सर्वांची खुप उत्तम सोय तुम्ही केली, कमी पैसे घेऊनसुद्धा यांच्या दर्जात कुठल्याही प्रकारची तडजोड केली नाही. ...

EziiTours provided us with an excellent set of facilities at affordable rates. One can say " A guaranteed dream journey with a divine eperience." Superb!!!
