Description

The snout of Gangotri glacier at an altitude of 4,200 metres is regarded as the physical source of Bhagirathi (Ganga) and is of great importance to the pilgrims. The Gangotri glacier is nearly 24 kms. long and 6 – 8 kms. wide. The glacier is believed to receding at the rate of 5 metres a year. Pilgrims trek from Gangotri to Gaumukh and take a holy dip in the ice cold water.

The scenic trek route passes through lush valleys, dense forests and towering peaks. Chirbasa, 9 kms. from Gangotri is the popular camping site on the route. It affords awe-inspiring views of the glaciated heights of Gaumukh. Bhojwasa, 14 kms. trek from Gangotri is known for the forest of Bhojpatra trees. In ancient times the bark of the Bhojpatra trees was used as substitute for paper for writing.

Nandanvan – Tapovan (28 kms.)

These two attractive spots opposite to Gangotri glacier lie further up from Gaumukh and can be reached after a difficult trek. Nandanvan is the base camp or Bagirathi peak and provides a spectacular view of the majestic Shivling peak. A trek across the south of the Gangotri glacier leads to Tapovan famous for its beautiful meadows encircling the base of the Shivling peak.
