Its summit has an elevation of 6,727 metres (22,070 ft).Two huge rocks on a spur of Haathi Parvat are described as a crow (Kaaka) and an Eagle (Garuda). The locals believe that the crow is animatedly conversing with Garuda on the affairs of the universe. Another version has it that a learned Brahmin of Ayodhya once incurred the wrath of the sage Lomas who lived here and was changed into the form of crow by the sage.Haathi Parvat can be reached from Visnuprayag or Ghangaria, which is close to Valley of flowers. The approach from Ghangaria is a little easier but longer. From Govind-Ghat, there is an 18 km bridle path which runs through the Bhiundar or Bhuyandar valley and Bhiundhar village up to Ghangaria.
