Celebrated in Hindu mythology and religion,
the Garhwal Himalayas are said to be the
"Abode of the Gods". The river
Ganges takes its source in this remote massif,
at the sacred shrine of Gangotri, and rushes
down to the plains in a torrential fury.
Very few trekkers follow this itinerary
which will lead to one of the most important
spots of Hindu spirituality, where you will
A strange atmosphere
of religious fervour. Gaumukh is where the waters
of Ganga trickle down from the glaciers. The sages
called it 'Gaumukh', because in the distant past,
it probably appeared like a cow's mouth; though
today it no longer appears so. From Gangotri we
move along the beaten track towards Chirbasa,
which is on the tree line. From here, we can get
a clear view of the Bhagirathi Peak. After Chirbasa,
the terrain becomes really desolate and barren.and
then we reach Bhojwasa. Gaumukh Glacier is just
four kilometers ahead. To reach Nandanvan, we
need to take a detour from Bhojwasa. The first
glimpse of Shivlinga Peak from here, is like an
ice-cream cone rising towards the sky. Nandanvan
is another's day-trek ahead. From Gaumukh to Tapovan
the ascent is steep, and as we climb, the view
of the surrounding peaks becomes clearer. They
appear to be just a stone's throw away. Nandanvan
situated at the base of the Bhagirathi group of
peaks, can be reached after crossing the Gangotri
Glacier. It is an alpine meadow in the shadow
of the Bhagirathi peaks. an / Bhojwasa / Gangotri
