Gangotri Glacier in Gangotri

The Gangotri glacier is a traditional Hindu pilgrimage site. Devout Hindus consider bathing in the icy waters near Gangotri town to be a holy ritual, and many made the trek to Gomukh, with a few continuing on to Tapovan. One needs to trek from Gangotri to Gaumukh, passing Devgadh, Chirbasa, Bhojbasa en route. Currently accommodation is available only at Bhojbasa, although forest check posts are present at both Chirbasa and Bhojbasa.
