The golden triangle – the Tapovan – Gomukh trail

The experience of being in the Himalayas surrounded by snow-clad peaks, numerous streams and mystic lakes makes our Golden Triangle trek stand out in the crowd. Crossing the Gomukh-Tapovan trail via the source of the Ganges helps you understand the significance of the river Ganges and witnessing nature at its best. The Ganges with its source at the Gomukh glacier is the most sacred river for the Hindus. Hindus undertake the aurdous trek to Gangotri to carry back the holy water of the river for religious ceremonies. The trek takes you to Gomukh (the cows mouth), the source of the River Ganges, which is the snout of the Gangotri glacier. While trekking to Gomukh is relatively easy, experienced trekkers might fancy attempting the Gomukh-Tapovan corridor and visiting the base of legendary Shivling!

As you weave your way from Gangotri to Tapovan, every twist in the trail reveals spectacular views. The campsite at Tapovan must rate as one of the most awe-inspiring spots in the world, as you gaze at the Shivling peak rising like a giant before you with the twins Bhagirathi and Mt.Meru in the backdrop.
