Gaumukh

Gamukh marks the end of the Gangotri glacier from where the Bhagirathi River begins, it is located in the Uttarakashi district. It is both a popular religious spot and a trekking destination. It is given the name because it resembles the mouth of a cow.

There are two routes to Gaumukh glacier. One on the left which is full of boulders and risky and the one to the right which goes further to Nandanvan if we climb up the glacier. We took the route left but didn't go till the glacier. Just stopped at a point where we could see the glacier. But that itself was close to 7 km. It was a hot day that day and I was feeling thirsty and was also peeing more often. Also, I had very less water with me so had to refill every now and then. Within a couple of hours, we reached Gaumukh where we got few good shots. The flow of water was tremendous. Each were having their own moments. We savored Ashutosh's laddu and Perk. Ashutosh wanted to finish of his home made laddus in a hurry as he didn't want to carry the weight throughout. I being the lucky guy who shared his tent, got to eat most of it until Pooja snatched the remaining, a couple of days later. By the way the laddu was terrific.
