Overview

This is one of the most sought after treks in Garhwal Himalayas where we will travel to the very source of pious Ganga River. Steeped in spirituality and Himalayan grandeur, this trek will take us to a remote Himalayan landscape and incredible views of massive peaks : Mt Shivling, Bhagirathi Group of Peaks and Mt Meru

The highlight of the Tour is visit to Gomukh (Go or Gau = Cow and mukh = mouth), the Source of the River Ganga. One sees water gushing out of a snout-like opening and towering rocks and the thick chunks of hardened ice of the glacier. Beyond Gomukh, we move to Tapovan where we stay for two nights at picture-perfect Campsites. Here, we will see most amazing Sunrises and Sunsets that you will ever see.

We have planned this trek in the month of October which is a great month for jaw-dropping Himalayan views and hence a perfect time to Trek!!!
