The trek starts with a decent trail and it remains the same till further 2 km where you need to show permits. As you walk deep into the valley the vegetation also decreases. Continue trekking to reach Chirbasa which is situated 9 kms from Gangotri Town. Cross small streams en route to Chirbasa. Chirbasa is a good campsite and the last point where you’ll see good vegetation. Chirbasa is situated at an elevation of 3580 mts above sea level.
Bhojwasa is located 5 kms from Chirbasa. Bhagirathi Peaks stands high above the ground and is constantly visible during the trek. The trail not only goes through rugged terrains along with the Bhagirathi River but also climbs up to rugged mountains. Bhojbasa is a vast open expanse of land in the valley, situated at an elevation of 3,800 mts above sea level. Camping at Bhojwasa.
There are two routes by which you can reach Tapovan. First, one being the classic route via Gaumukh Glacier for which you need to follow the trail going to Gaumukh which can be seen on the left side from Bhojbasa. Gaumukh Glacier is 4 kms from Bhojwasa. But due to the recent collapse of the snout of the glacier, it is in a delicate state.
The second route requires crossing the Bhagirathi River from Bhojwasa itself. You need to walk on moraines for many kilometers with a constant view of Gaumukh Glacier from distant. Climb the ridge covered with snow to reach Tapovan. Tapovan campsite is located at the foot of Mount Shivling (6,543 mts), just a glance of this mountain is a priceless gift of this trek. And if the Shivling peak is not enough then Kharch Kund & Meru Peak will definitely leave you speechless.
From Gaumukh we will trek towards Tapovan and night stay in camps in Tapovan.
Note: Guide/Trek Leader will decided which route to be finalized depending on the snow, weather conditions and ability of trekkers.
We will trek back to Bhojwasa from Tapovan. The trek starts off with rugged terrains and moraines. The descent on moraines will require extra attention from your legs while trekking. Trek slowly and take a break after you reach the snout of Gaumukh Glacier to experience its massiveness.
Note: for addon days (charged extra), you can explore Meru Glacier or just relax in Tapovan.
Enjoy the last day of trek from Bhojbasa to Gangotri. In the evening you can visit Gangotri temple for evening aarti. Night stay in Gangotri hotel.
Check and departure from Gangotri after breakfast. Our trek services for this Gamumuk-Tapovan Trek will end at Gangotri.
