Gaumukh Glacier is a birthplace of Holy River Ganga. It is a firm trek from Gangotri and visitors normally remain overnight at Gangotri before taking up the trek following day morning. Visitors likewise visit Tapovan where short proximity perspectives of Shivling and significant pinnacles are unmistakable from here.
The first occasion when, it was seeing the Bhagirathi sisters shimmering in the moonlight from Bhojbasa. The second time, it was more seasoned and valued the trek more. From Tapovan, Mt Shivling ascends from its base the distance to its summit and that is an uncommon sight — to see a mountain completely.
