A dip here is considered to rid a person from all his sins! The place is crowded throughout the year especially during the saawan because of kaawad. The water is ice cool. But be careful of your belongings.

I suggest you can directly go to Har Ki Pauri and there you can find so many Pandit who is doing Pooja. So you will have to check and negotiate about price. Because there is no fix price they all charge differently.
