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.
