Trek to Gangotri Glacier in Gangotri

Gomukh, the terminus or snout of the Gangotri Glacier, from where Bhagirathi River originates, is one of the primary sources of the Ganges River. It is a popular Hindu pilgrimage site, along with Gangotri, as well as trekking destination.
The complete trek from Gomukh to Gangotri Glacier is 19km. It is a trekking paradise for all the adventurous travellers. The 2013 North India Floods destroyed much of Chirbasa and Bhojbasa trail, and access is now a little difficult beyond Chirbasa due to trail deterioration and a 2 km wide rockfall site.
