Photographer's Note

A spectacular view of bhagirathi peaks from bhojwasa 14km from gangotri.
Bhagirathi II, III, and I (left to right, 6512m, 6454m, and 6856m), from the West .The highest peak of the Bhagirathi Group forms a complex and topographically complicated massif. Bhagirathi Parbat has three major peaks. It stands at and dominates the end of the valley leading up to Gaumukh which is the end of the Gangotri Glacier and the source of the river Ganga. The upper part of the river Ganga is also called Bhagirathi, and both the mountain and the river are named after King Bhagirath.
