FAQs

What makes Himalayan Water different?

The majestic source is what really makes Himalayan Natural Mineral Water special. The water spends 20 years passing through layers of sand, silt and rocks before it collects in a confined aquifer located under the Himalayan Mountains. The water is pulled directly from the source aquifer and bottled into the iconic Himalayan Water bottle.

What is natural mineral water?

Natural mineral water is characterized by the presence of minerals and trace elements. In the case of Himalayan Water, these come from the 20 year journey through the mountains into a confined aquifer that rests under the Shivalik Range in the Himalayan Mountains.

State and federal laws set the standards for the production and quality of mineral water.

What is sourced water?

Sourced water is water that is bottled at the source from which it originates. Before it is bottled, Himalayan Water rests in a confined aquifer under the Shivalik Range in the Himalayan Mountains. The bottling facility sits on the aquifer and the water is pulled from the aquifer and bottled on-site.

What is a confined aquifer?

Under the earth there are pools of water called aquifers. A confined aquifer is protected by a thick, impermeable, layer of clay. The clay above the confined aquifer protects the water from contamination.

Where is Himalayan Water bottled?

Since Himalayan Water is a natural mineral water, it must be bottled at the source. The one and only bottling plant is located at Dhaula Kuan, Paonta Sahib, Himachal Pradesh in the foothills of the Shivalik Mountain Range, part of the Himalayan Mountains.

Is Himalayan Water safe for consumption?

Yes, Himalayan Water is safe for consumption. It spends 20 years traveling through the mountain’s layers of sand, silt, and rocks before it rests in the aquifer and is bottled from there. This natural filtration of the 20 year journey thorough the mountain ensures the quality of Himalayan Water . The water is also tested by an FDA approved laboratory to ensure it is safe for human consumption.

Why do I sometimes see white sediment in the Himalayan Water bottle?

While this doesn’t usually occur, since Himalayan Water is a sourced mineral water it naturally contains alkaline salts. Sometimes those salts solidify and show up in the bottom of you bottle. Don’t worry though; your water is still completely safe to enjoy.

What does “Balanced pH” mean?

Himalayan Water has a pH that ranges from 7.1 to 7.7, which means it is almost neutral or mildly alkaline.
