Uttarkashi is a beautiful part of our country. There are several beautiful treks, hikes and walks around the area. This area is only for those who are willing to rough it out and walk up and down mountains. Gangotri is situated on the Bhagirathi river and is about 20 kms down river from the source of the river at Gomukh. The road head for Gomukh is at Gangotri and then it is a up hill walk all the way. Be prepared to carry supplies and sleeping bags etc as yo uwill need to halt at night somewhere. It is a two day trek at the minimum You will need a guide as the path up can be treacherous at places. The trek is long but at the end the reward is spectacular. The trek can only be done in warmer months as the area remains snow bound in winter and the permission to trek up is not granted by the forest office which issues permits to trekkers.
