Itinerary

 

Day 01 : Arrive in Gangotri

 

The only way to reach Gangotri is by road. One can start the road journey either from Dehradun or Rishikesh but with a new route open now, reaching Gangotri via Dehradun is the faster option (around 242 Kms). 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.

 

Day 02 : Rest & Acclimatization

 

Rest and Acclamatization in Gangotri.

 

Day 03 : Gangotri to Bhojwass (3792 Mts) via (3600 Mts). 14 kms trek.

 

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 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. Entire trail passes through dense forest till Bhojwassa. There is a small temple and a potential campsite near the river. Good place to camp for the day. Excellent sunset on Bhagirathi group of peaks to delight you in the evening

 

Day 4 : Bhojwassa - Gomukh (3890 mts) - Tapovan (4463 mts). 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.

 

Day 05 : Tapovan – Meru Glacier - Nandanvan (4340 mts). Trek 4-5 hrs.

 

On this day we start early & head to the great Meru Glacier. After a brief halt to explore Meru Glacier, we trace back 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 enroute offer grips and foot - holds but many of them are deceptive too. Dinner and overnight stay in tents.

 

Day 06 : Nandanvan - Vasuki Tal (4880 mts)

 

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.

Day 09 : Khada Patthar to Sweta Glacier (4/5 Hrs)

 

Today's trek is of relatively short duration. The campsite is a moraine area filled with rocks and boulders, not an ideal campsite but is a must for acclamatization purpose

 

Day 10 : Sweta Glacier to Base Camp (4/5 Hrs)

 

We will start our day early today. It's a short walk but since most of the trek will be in moraine area it's always good to have time in hand. On the way is Chatrungi Glacier which got its name because of 4 colors (pink, yellow, brown, green) as are visible at this place. This glacial flow from this glacier forms major tributary for Gangotri Glacier. Camping site for today is Kalindi Bhamak which is close to the snout of Kalindi Glacier. Kalindi Khal/Pass is just up ahead an opening between Avalanche and Kalindi Peak.

 

Day 11 : Base Camp to Rajaparaw across Kalindi Pass (6/7 Hrs)

 

Today's the D Day and everybody should be up and ready early in the morning. Climb to the pass is not easy by any standard and hence a continuous pace is required till we reach the pass. Once you reach the pass you will realize that all the toil and hardwork was worth every second. You will get spectacular views of Mt Kamet, Mt. Mana, Chandra Parbat, Vasuki Parbat and on a clear day a view of Tibetan Plateau as well. We will camp at Raj Parav today after crossing the glacial terrain.
