Itinerary

(Uttarakhand To Uttarakhand)
1
Day :1 Pickup to you from Dehradun railway station – Drive to Gangotri – 258 km) (10/11 Hours) (3415 Meter)
    The only way to reach Gangotri is by road. One can start the road journey either from Dehradun but with a new route open now, reaching Gangotri via Dehradun is the faster option (around 242 Kms). Arrive at Gangotri by 3 PM. You will receive the detail of accommodation in Gangotri through an email from us. After reaching here, check into the Guest House/Hotel. Have some rest. Evening can be utilized to explore the local market, temples, etc.
2
Day :2 Trek from Gangotri to Bhojbasa camp (14 km) (7 Hours)
    We start in the morning, after breakfast to trek towards Chirbasa (3600mt). From Gangotri, you may move along the beaten track towards Chirbasa, which is on the tree line. The entire trek till Chirbasa is along the roaring Bhagirathi River. We can have our pack lunch in Chirbasa. From Chirbasa, we trek further to Bhojwassa today. The trek is going to be moderate for the day. The terrain, after Chirbasa, becomes really desolate and barren. In fact, it has been referred to as Arctic Tundra by many trekkers. The entire trail passes through a dense forest till Bhojwassa. There is a small temple and a potential campsite near the river. A good place to camp for the day. Excellent sunset on Bhagirathi group of peaks to delight you in the evening.
3
Day :3 Bhojbasa to Tapovan via Gaumukh by Trek - 13 Kms Trek
    Early in the Morning enjoy the panoramic view of Bhagirathi group of peaks. After breakfast trek to Gomukh (3890mt), the source of the Ganges. Gomukh is where the water of Ganga trickles down from the glaciers. The sages called it 'Gomukh' because, in the distant past, it probably appeared like a cow's mouth. Explore the area and trek to Tapovan, one of the finest high altitude alpine meadows in the area. The trek from Gomukh to Tapovan is ascent steep, and as we climb, the view of the surrounding peaks becomes clearer. Tapovan known for its beautiful meadows that encircle the base camp of the Shivling peak, Tapovan is a very pleasant surprised spot with a large meadow complete with bubbling streams, wildflowers, and campsites. Herds of Bharal (blue mountain goats) are a common sight from here on mountain ridges. On the far side of the glacier the Bhagirathi I, II, III (6454mt), provide an equally impressive backdrop. It is also the little wonder where Sadhus and saints choose this spot for extended meditation during the long summer month. Arrive Tapovan and camp. Dinner and overnight stay in camp.
4
Day :4 Tapovan - Nandanvan (4340 mts). Trek 4-5 hrs.
    On this day we head to Nandanvan via Gomukh glacier. The route from Tapovan leads from the upper section of the meadow till down and onto the glacier. From Gomukh turn towards Nandanvan (4340m) and steering on right one will be on top of the Gangotri glacier. The glacier runs between two ranges and the landslides make a layer of rocky moraine on the ice which makes the walking easier. The glacier walk is very slippery and a slight lack of concentration would be dangerous. Huge crevasses gaped here and there. After a walking, for about a kilometer there is a vertical ascent. Big rocks en route offer grips and footholds but many of them are deceptive too. Dinner and overnight stay in tents.
5
Day :5 Nandanvan - Vasuki Tal (4880 mts) - Nandanvan. 12 kms Trek.
    Morning trek along with Chaturangi Glacier to reach Vasuki Tal, a beautiful base for Mt Satopanth and Mt Vasuki Parbat with a small lake. The trek is steady upward. After Exploring the area, trek back to Nandanvan. Arrive in 5-6 hours and overnight stay in tents.
6
Day :6 Nandanvan to Bhojwassa (Trek 5-6 hrs)
    Today, we will retrace our steps from Nandanvan to Bhojwassa. Camp in Bhojwassa for the night.
7
Day :7 Bhojwassa to Gangotri. Trek 3-4 hrs.
    After breakfast get ready to trek down to Gangotri. The descent is easy and one can reach Gangotri well before afternoon. We can use this day to visit the holy town of Gangotri which is one of the most famous and sacred destinations for Hindus, all over the world.
8
