Trek to Gaumukh

Duration 6 Nights & 7Days
Difficulty Level Easy-Moderate
Distance 44Kms

Summary :-
Gaumukh is where the waters of Ganga trickles down from the glaciers. The sages calledit 'Gaumukh', because in the distance past, probably appeared like a cows mouth: though today, it no longer appears so. From Gangotri you move along the beaten track towards Chirbasa, which is on the treeline. From here you can have clear view of Bhagirathi peaks. Beyond Chirbasa the terrain becomes desolate and barren. Infact it has been reffered to as the Arctic Tundra by many trekkers. From Chirbasa you reach Bhojbasa. Gaumukh Glacier is just 4Kms ahead. From Gaumukh to Tapovan the ascent is steep and as you climb the view of the surrounding peaks is clearer. They appear to be just a stone throw away.
