April To October
It is 18 km from Gangotri and the trek to Gaumukh from Gangotri is easy. Gomukh is one of the holiest places for Hindu pilgrims who come here to witness the birth of Mother Ganga. The trek takes you to Gomukh (cows mouth), the mythological source of the River Ganges, which is at the snout of the Gangotri glacier.The main source of the Ganga or the Bhagirathi River is the Gaumukh glacier. This is the main reason a large number of devotees visit this place to take a dip in the ice cold water.
