About Itinerary

If you are the one who is always up for an adventure hike, then this Gomukh Tapovan Trek package is for you. Gaumukh Tapovan Trek is one of the oldest treks in Uttarakhand. Every year hundreds of pilgrims trek to Gaumukh, but still, this Gangotri Tapovan trek is not very commercial.

For pilgrims & trekkers, it is a most heavenly trekking experience. It is a moderate-level trek that starts from Gangotri. Usually, pilgrims travel only up to the Gaumukh Glacier, which is the source of the holy river Ganges. But the highlight of the trek comes after Gaumukh. The gorgeous Shivling peak, alpine meadows, and beautiful valleys are the charm of this Tapovan Gomukh trek package.

In the package, we provide transportation, camping accommodation, food, and an experienced Tapovan trek guide for this expedition. The best part is that the proposed Gomukh Tapovan trek cost is less if compared to others. If you’re interested, then allow us to plan this trekking package for you.
