Tapovan Trek – First 'Peak' Love (Mt Shivling)
A Week in God's Adobe: Tapovan tales
Bhojbasa Village Day05:- We woke up early in the morning to see the sunrise.It was one of the most breathtaking experience of my life...After completing our breakfast we started our trek towards Gomukh,4km from Bhojwasa.It is a steep ascent from Bhojwasa.The road is full of boulders...After trekking through this ardous trail for 2 hours we reached 'there'...An indescribable joy was filling my heart as if I have conquered the world....Standing on the gomukh snout I realized why people ask to have a guide to trek upto Tapovan..There is no trail existent..You have to navigate through the glacier avoiding deep crevasses,without a guide it could very much possible that you lose your path in this glacial labyrinth.It's steep ascent,the most challenging in the entire trek..This portion of the trek examined us both physically and mentally..After reaching the top we were almost out of breath but the beauty that unfolded paid every penny of it.......We reached Heaven...At the foot of Mighty mount Shivling.....Mounibaba was gracious enough to allow us to stay in his hermitage with delicious food.... enroute tapovan mouni baba Important Notes:- a)Permit can be made from Uttarkashi or Gangotri DFO office. b)If you are planning to go upto tapovan have a guide. c)Buy vegetables,masalas which to be given to mounibaba for cooking.As tapovan is one of the remotest places it is better to carry food items from uttarkashi. d)Medicines are must. e)Road condition is very bad..Most of the portions are made of boulders.The trail from Gomukh onwards is extremely challenging..Therefore prepare properly before venturing out......
