Photographer's Note

Tapovan is 4km away from snout of Gaumukh and one can reach there after 2 hours of difficult trekking along the glacier on the same side as Gaumukh. It is the base camp for the Shivlinga peak and affords a stunning view of the Shivlinga peak,the Bhagirathi peaks and the Meru.

The trekking route is across the snout of the Gangotri Glacier and the last 1 km. is almost a climbing of a 70 degree steep mountain. But as you reach there and stand at the base of the Shivling peak and behold the divine beauty around, the fatigue gets wiped out.
