Tapovan Trek

 Brief Description

Tapovan Trek takes you around the Gangotri Glacier to that point. Which is traditionally considered to be the mouth of the holy Ganges river.
Tapovan Himalaya section is about 24 km long, starting from Gangotri. And the trek proceeds beyond the tree line for a large part. And passes through mountains larger than life. We camp at rugged heights, with snow-capped peaks in the distance. Whether it is the surreal view of the Bhagirathi peaks Gleaming on a moonlit night. The mind-blowing view of the Shivaling from Tapovan Campsite rising up from the base in front of you. Or a glimpse of the formidable Mount Meru, the view is a never-ending ecstasy on this journey. There is excitement. The sense of grandeur comes in a spiritual moment watching the river. that gave birth and nurtured an entire civilization emanating from the aptly named. Gaumukh snout to flow 2,526 odd kilometers before meeting the sea. And originating from the Gangotri glacier from Gaumukh. Which means “cow’s mouth”, the river has a different name. Bhagirathi, and becomes the Ganges. Only after flowing with another headstream, Devprayag. the life vein of the northern plains of India. In the Alaknanda – the confluence of the Ganges before falling into the main plains. This magnificent geography derives from those myths. Those who consider the river very sacred. He was brought to earth from his divine heights to renew the lives. of men by the rigorous dedication of a mortal, Bhagirathi. Which gives the channel its name- Bhagirathi. and the destructive energy of the river was given by none other than Shiva himself. This trek is classified as moderate-difficult for all the right reasons. You should be ready for climbing with boulder filled paths and harsh climate. The sadhus who live permanently in the field of Tapovan. for spiritual practice in the sight of Shivling can be your inspiration.
