Overview

The Gaumukh glacier is the source of Bhagirathi and is held in high esteem by the devout who do not miss the opportunity to have a holy dip in the bone chilling icy water. Gaumukh is where the water of Ganga trickles down from the glaciers. The sages called it ‘Gaumukh’, because in the distant past, it probably appeared like a cow’s mouth. Tapovan is an ideal location for travelers looking for peace and adventure. Tapovan is located at an altitude of 4,463 m / 14,640 ft above sea level. Tapovan is known for its beautiful meadows that encircle the base camp of the Shivling peak. It is full of bubbling streams, wildflowers and campsites. Herds of Bharal (blue mountain goats) is a common sight from here on mountain ridges. On the far side of the glacier the Bhagirathi I, II, III (6,454 m) provide an equally impressive backdrop. This area is a climber′s paradise.
