The final group of Gaumukh Tapovan trekkers for the month of May, successfully completed the trek. Trek leader Amit Gupta came back singing praises about the trek’s success, despite having a few challenges.

There were some setbacks that the team faced. The weather was a bit brutal, since the sun scorched the trail. Nevertheless, they were blessed with clear views almost every step of the way.

Due to the pilgrimage, the campsites had some yatra crowds as well. To ensure that trekkers still got a true Indiahikes experience, our team made sure that they camped away from the crowd and conducted activities that allowed trekkers to stay connected with nature.

Another challenge that they faced was crossing the tricky rockfall section. To ensure a safe and successful crossing for all trekkers, the Indiahikes team ensured that clear instructions were communicated to the trekkers before the trek. Helmets were also provided to prioritise safety. Despite the difficulty of the terrain, with these precautions in place, the trekkers were able to cross the section safely.

For Amit, “the Gaumukh Tapovan trek was not just a spiritual journey, but a journey which tests you with challenges of rockfall area, compromising campsites areas and water conditions. But at the same time it rewards you with towering peaks standing with sheer elegance and charm.”

If you are heading to the Gaumukh Tapovan trek in the coming months, ensure that you are well prepared. Some essentials you must carry with you are hats, sunglasses and full sleeve dry fit clothes to protect your skin from the sun.

The Gaumukh Tapovan is also a moderate to difficult trek, so ensure that your fitness is up to the mark before the trek.
