Early in the morning, drive 90 km to Gangotri (3,048 m). Gangotri is the place where the Goddess Ganga descended
on earth from heaven. It is also the road head for trekking in Gangotri valley. From here, start your 14 km trek to
Bhojbasa (3,658 m) following the river Bhagirathi on right bank. The trek is gradual ascent for most of the part. From
Bhojbasa, you can have majestic views of the Bhagirathi group of peaks. On arrival, set up camp for overnight stay.

large high-altitude meadow and base camp for climbing Mt Shivling and Mt Meru. Later return to Bhojbasa. Overnight
