Routing Arrival Delhi - Haridwar - Rishikesh - Uttarkashi - Sangam Chatti - Agoda - Dodital - Gangotri - Bhojbasa - Tapovan - Gangotri - Uttarkashi - Haridwar - Delhi Departure

The Ganges is considered to be the most sacred river in India. The saying is that the Goddess Ganga descended on Earth from heaven at Gangotri and so the Gangotri is considered as Source of Ganges. There is a temple at Gangotri dedicated to Mother Ganges. The actual source of 'The Ganges' runs 19 km from Gangotri which is at Gaumukh. The trek follows the river upstream to the actual source at Gaumukh. The tour starts from the holy city of Rishikesh, known as 'Gateway to Himalayas'. This exiting trek offers fantastic view of beautiful mountains like Shivling (6543 m), Meru and Bhagirathi group of mountains. Dodital, a high altitude lake, full of flora and fauna, can also be seen there.


This is an easy trek which starts from the Bhagirathi valley and goes up to the lake of Dodital wrapped in perfect wilderness. This trail which is fairly popular during the warmer months will not have many souls except the village hunters walking it in the winters. Experience living in the woods the local way - in the summer homes of the shepherds.
