➩ Description

The Gaumukh Tapovan Trek — a Journey to the Sacred River The Ganges is considered the holiest river in Hinduism, and its origin may be found in Gaumukh, which is located on the Gangotri glacier. The glacier travels in a westerly direction and passes directly below Chaukhamba Peak, which is the highest point in the Group. This is the only Ganga valley from where a whole panorama of Bhagirathi peak can be seen, including Shivling Peak, Matri Peak, Raktvan, and Bhagirathi peaks I, II, and III. From this vantage point, one can also view the peaks of Tapovan and Nill Tal, which are both 4,400 metres high. The journey leads one to Gaumukh or moumukhi maa Ganga Bhojbasa after TM Program and breakfast. After entering the national park, you stroll along the banks of the Bhagirathi River while taking in the stunning environment and admiring the wonderful view of Shiv Ling Mountain. Along the way, you encounter pilgrims such as Sanyasis and Sadhus. At different locations, there are cosy little tent stores where you can take a break, get something warm to drink, and replenish your water supply. There will be several opportunities along the road to go on with the journey while riding a mule. Upon arrival, the TM programme allows participants to take in the breathtaking views of Shiv Ling Mountain. The name “Tapovan” originates from the Sanskrit roots “tapas,” which means “pain” or “suffering,” and “by.”

➩ Fitness

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.

The organisation for the hike was excellent. Indian Treks is very adaptable, which is a huge asset in the event that our travel plans need to be altered. The most memorable experience for me was getting endless hot gulab jamun.
