Itinerary
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TRIP:
* Beautiful drive along the holy rivers of Bhagirahti and Bhilangna. Bhagirathi coming from Gomukh (The source of the Ganges) and Bhilangna coming out from Khatling glacier. According to the legends Bhilangna was actually a maiden who tried to capture Shiva's attention while he meditated and upon being rebuked was dissolved into water.

*Close encounter with the culture of mountain people and their settlement pattern Villages like Gangi and Kharsoli are among the very less visited villages, where accessibility is limited to those who live there or those who are trekking or to the rare breed of pilgrims trying to do the pilgrimage on foot form Gangotri to Kedarnath. To those who have visited the area, the villages are like living museums Gangi and kahrsoli residents have very few residents and very little of the modern world. One encounters Gujjars the nomadic tribes grazing with their cattle's in the high alpine meadows

* Outstanding mountain views of high peaks the most prominent peaks are Gangotri and Jonali. * Negotiating high passes and trekking along the high altitude Himalayan Lakes. The high light of the trip is Masar tal , a lake 4 kms in circumference . And above all quality equipment , Knowledgeable Trekking guide and camp staff, delicious hygienic food.
