Photographer's Note

Mt. Shivling 6550 (Meters ) may be the most stunning peak of the Garwhal region. It rises as a sheer pyramid above the snout of the Gangotri Glacier, in the northern Indian state of Uttrakhand.

Shivling appears as a single pyramid when seen from Gaumukh, but is actually a twin-summit mountain, with the northeast summit being slightly higher than the southwest summit, 6,501 m (21,329 ft). Between Gaumukh and Shivling lies the Tapovan meadow, a popular pilgrimage site due to its inspiring view of the mountain.
Shivling is a mountain in the Gangotri Group of peaks near the snout of Gangotri Glacier.Its name refers to its status as a sacred symbol of the God-Lord Shiva's Shiva Linga.
