  • Experience 18 Days and 17 nights guided trek to the Source of the Sacred Ganges River in the Indian Himalayas through the most historical places and seeing the majestic Himalayas up and close, visits a remote and highly spectacular part of the Indian Himalaya, known as Garhwal. Garhwal is celebrated in Hindu mythology and religion and is locally known as the ‘Abode of the Gods’. It is here in this massive region, beyond the Hindu shrine at Gangotri, that the mighty Ganges River has its source. Emerging from a glacier, this great river rushes down to the plains in a torrential flurry. Our itinerary includes two short treks. The first trek is a warm-up and takes us off the beaten track from the small village of Raithal to Dayara Bugyal “Nature's Own Gardens” and Bakaria Top for great panoramic views of the Garhwal Himalaya. We then move on to Gangotri where the trek starts from Gangotri Temple, dedicated to Mother Goddess Ganga on the bank of Bhagirathi River which is the main tributary of the Ganga River. Winding through Bhojbasa, Gaumukh, source of the Sacred Ganges, and continue trek to The massive overlooks in the sprawling meadow of Tapovan at 4,463 meters, which is considered as one of the alpine meadows in India and is crisscrossed by several small streams and dotted with flowering plants. Here Shivaling and other mighty peaks are almost close enough to touch. We also visit the holy town of Haridwar where the River Ganges exits the Himalayan foothills and Rishikesh on the banks of the Ganges located in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, it is known as the 'Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas' and 'Yoga Capital of the World'.
