The latest group of trekkers from the Gaumukh Tapovan trek are raving about the stunning mountain views from the trek. 

We’re in the middle of the Gaumukh Tapovan trekking season. And the latest photos show Mt. Shivling and the Bhagirathi Sisters under the brilliant blue skies with a foreground of fiery vegetation. 

This is the only time of the year when you see such vibrant colours in nature, especially en route to Chirbasa and in patches on the way to Tapovan.

The minimum temperature is dipping to sub-zero levels. “The dew on tents is freezing. Even the Akash Ganga river, which flows through Tapovan is freezing in places,” shares Trek Leader Kaisu Walter. The crisp air and clear weather make this the perfect time to witness stunning views of the Greater Himalayas. 

Four more groups are scheduled to do the Gaumukh Tapovan trek in the coming weeks. 

We’re constantly in touch with our teams on the trek. And we’ll keep sharing all relevant updates with you right here.
