Gaumukh Trek : A Journey to the source of River The Holy River Ganga

Gaumukh Trek – The Holy River Ganges is the most sacred river in the Hindu religion and its source at Gaumukh at the Gangotri glacier.

The glacier follows a N. Westerly route located below Chaukhamba Mountain, the highest peak of the Group.

This is the only Ganga valley from where one can see Bhagirathi peak – I, II, III, Shivling Peak and Matri Peak, Raktvan. , all together. One can also see the Tapovan and Nill Tal (4400 mt) peaks from here.

The trek takes one to Gaumukh or moumukhi maa Ganga   Bhojbasa after TM Program and breakfast.

You enter the national park, walk on side of Bhagirathi River in a breathtaking scenery, a magnificent view on Shiv Ling Mountain, meeting pilgrim’s including Sanyasis and Sadhus. There is possibility to rest and take hot drinks and water in various places in comfortable small tent shops.

All along the way there will possibility to continue the trek on mule back. On arrival, TM program, enjoy incredible scenery and sight of Shiv Ling Mountain.

Tapovan (Sanskrit) comes from the two root words tapas – meaning pain or suffering, and by The trekking usually starts from Gaumukh and the trek was considered moderate to difficult prior to the destruction of much of the trail from Gangotri


Gangotri – The shrine of Gangotri is situated at an elevation of 3200 m surrounded by Deodars (Cider) and Chir (pine).

The original temple was constructed by the Gorkha General Amar Singh Thapa after his conquest of the Garhwal area! Every year people from all around the world visit this shrine.

A number of Ashrams and Dharamshalas are located on the far side of the river.

It is believed that Raja Bhagirath used to worship Shiva on a slab of rock “Bhagirath Shila” situated near the temple. Submerged in the river there is a natural Shivling where, according to mythology, Lord Shiva sat when he received the Goddess Ganga in his matted locks.

A days trek takes one to Gaumukh, the source of the mighty Ganges.

The Gaumukh, the source of the River Ganga and Raktvan river, and amer Ganga, itself is reason enough to do this trek. Gaumukh is a sight on its own.

Only when you get close to it do you realize how big and magnificent the glacier is! I am not surprised this is the most often repeated trek by trekkers.

Every time you visit, there is something new to take back. For this trek
