The trek starts from the 18th century temple of Gangotri and goes beyond the source of Ganga to the meadow of Tapovan, favorite spot for sadhus meditating in the Himalayas. Gaumukh, the snout of the glacier, Tapovan and the mighty peaks of the Garhwal Himalayas definitely make it a special trek. From passing orchards of coniferous pine trees at Chirbasa and birch at Bhojbasa, and the retreating glacier at Gaumukh, the source of the Bhagirathi ; a plethora of sights and experiences in the shadow of Himalayan giants – the Bhagirathi massif and the beautiful Shivling peaks. We will also will be at a touching distance of Mt. Meru, one of the toughest peaks to climb in the world. With only a very recent successful attempt of the Shark’s Fin route by Jimmy Chin, Conrad Anker & Renan Ozturk. This beautiful peak was once mythologized to be the centre of the universe according to the old Indian Schools of thought.
