Gaumukh Origin Point of Religious Ganga River Gaumukh is one of the divine sites for Hindu pilgrims who visit this place to witness the birth of River Ganga. One can reach Gaumukh through this trek which is the mythological source of mother Ganga, located at the terminus of Gangotri Glacier which is encircled by peaks related to the Gangotri group of mountains, some of which are challenging for mountaineers such as Shivling, Thalay Sagar, Meru and Bhagirathi lll. The word Gaumukh literally means the ‘Mouth of a Cow’. It is said that earlier the terminus was exactly looked like a mouth of a cow. It is situated at a height of 13,200 ft. in Uttarkashi in the state if Uttarakhand.
It finds its mention in Puranas. It is said that once a shepherd went near Gangotri Galciers in search of lost sheep he found a terminus which was exactly looking like a cow’s mouth, thus the place got its name as ‘Gaumukh’. Since then, many saints, travellers as well as religious people went there to worship. Gaumukh is located in the foot hills of Bhagirathi at distance of 18kms from Gangotri. Here Bhagirathi River flows very fast. Around the terminus, nature offers a wild topography. One can find boulders dispersed here & there with snow pieces along with tough clayey snow of the glaciers. The first and most important thing for Gaumukh trek is that you need to take permission to trek from District Forest Office, Uttarkashi and hire a guide from there. One can also get permit through fax, only hundred permits issue each day. The trek starts from Gangotri. After walking 9kms from the base point you will reach a village named Chirbasa which is the house of Chir Trees. 7kms ahead from Chirbasa there is Bhujbasa which is the only halt place on the way to Gaumukh. There are several accommodation at this place. One can also go for Ashrams which offers lodging and food. After a walking of 7kms from Bhujbasa, one reaches Gaumukh. Horses and ponies are not allowed on the trek so visitors have to prepare themselves to trek on foot. During the trek one will go through the majestic view of Mt. Shivling that welcomes visitors to the place. It is the largest glacier of India after Siachin with the length of 30kms and width of 4kms. It is an ideal place for adventure enthusiasts as one has to walk through the adrenaline rushing path. One can also have a view of Himalayan peaks such as Shivling, Meru, Sudarshan, Bhagirathi sisters, Kharchkund and many more during the trek. It is not less than a blessing to visit this place during the opening time period of Gangotri Dham, because the trail to Gaumukh also opens for trekkers and devotees from May to October just like Gangotri temple, so as the Gangotri National Park due to the heavy snowfall. One must carry warm clothes, a good pair of shoes, water and food that can be cooked in boiled water during the trekking. To reach Gaumukh one has to drive towards Uttarkashi first and then trek for 14kms. If one prefers flights or trains then it is to inform you that these both modes end in Dehradun or Rishikesh. You will have to cross your rest of the journey via road.
