Gaumukh Tapovan Trek
Gaumukh Tapovan trek offers sight of the Bhagirathi sisters glistening in the moonlight from Bhojbasa. From Tapovan, Mt Shivling rises from its base all the way to its summit. It is a rare sight to see a mountain in its entirety and the aesthetics of Mt Shivling itself. There are rarely mountains that are as good looking as Mt Shivling. If there was a competition for the best looking summits of India, Mt Shivling would be right there near the top. To see such a beauty from a close range is an honour. Gaumukh, the source of the River 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 realise how big and magnificent the glacier is. It is the most repeated trek by trekkers. Every time you visit, there is something new to take back.
