The Source of Legendary Ganges


The Source of Legendary Ganges

The Holy River Ganges is the most sacred river in the Hindu religion. Gaumukh (Cow’s mouth) from where the Ganges originates is one of the holiest places for Hindu pilgrims who come here to witness the birth of Mother Ganges. True or not Gaumukh with its icicle Gangotri glacier is a challenge for every trekker and adventurer, most of who like to go beyond the Gaumukh point to camp right at the base of The Shivling Peak from where one also gets to see a magnificient view of Bhagirathi Peaks. 

The beautiful meadows of Tapovan is a delight to visit as you have the Shivling peak (6,543 m) - the Matterhorn of India, rising high on one side flanked by Meru and Kedardome and the peaks of Bhagirathi on the other side.
