Arrival at Gangotri
Arrive at Gangotri, join our trek Guide at Gangotri. Check-in your hotel. Visit Gangotri Temple for dusk aarti and buy trek necessary items (if any) from Gangotri market. Dinner and night stay in Gangotri Hotel.
Gangotri – Bhojkharak
Visit the holy shrine of Gangotri in the day also buy all the essential items from the market. Cross the bridge over Bhagirathi River and begin the ascent on the right. First, several kilometres of the trek is very steep so seek to walk with a gradual yet steady speed. The trail initially moves through pine trees then enters a mix vegetation region of fir and bhoj trees. While hiking you'll see Kedar Ganga circulating on your left, deep down in the canyon. The cascading noise of the raging river and the rustling sound of trees are a feast to ears. Soon you'll witness the first sight of Thalaysagar and each step will take you closer to this mystical peak. Just before arriving Bhoj Kharak, there is a sheer and slant rock amidst the way with a range of just several steps, it is also recognised as Spider Wall amongst hikers. But while it may appear daunting in the photos, it is not that hard to cross this part in the absence of snow. During early June or late October if the solid face is coated with snow then it will need some abilities to pass this section because one slip can pull you to a few hundred feet below. Cross this section and you'll reach Bhoj Kharak. Situated at the height of 3,780 mts above sea level Bhoj Kharak is a scanty and an average looking campsite. If you are prepared and managed to reach Bhoj Kharak at around noon then try to push and reach Lower Kedar Kharak on the same day.
Bhoj Kharak – Kedar Kharak
This 5 km stretch passes through some pieces of complicated rough terrains. After every half an hour into the trek, you'll notice a refreshing change in the landscape. Initially, it begins with a vegetation rich trail with various Bhojpatra trees and colourful wild plants around. Soon the view shifts with Manda peaks showing itself. Beautiful views of Bhrigupanth peak will also catch up as you hike nearer to Kedar Kharak. Focus on each step while you pass the land sliding zone of Gila Pahar. If this segment of Gila Pahar is in really bad shape then try and trek down to Kedar Ganga, cross the stream and hike against the current until you pass the Gila Pahar intersection then cross the river again and hike back to the initial trail that heads to Kedar Kharak. A wide channel opens up as you move towards Lower Kedarkharak (4100mts) and the trek ends up at the beautiful grassland of Kedar Kharak located at an elevation of 4,280mts above sea level. Even though this trekking stretch is just 5kms long, it requires good physical strength and stamina from trekkers. However, in the end, it is a well paid off effort because Kedarkharak is one of the most stunning campsites in the Gangotri National Park region.
Kedarkharak – Kedartal – Parikrama - Kedarkharak
It takes another 5 km to arrive Kedar Tal from Kedar Kharak and most of the way is on moraines and glacier-covered with moraines. If trekking in June you might have to hike on snow for the last few kilometres before Kedartal. Cross the brook carrying icy cold water and ascend the steep rocky terrain. Keep following the cairn marks to ensure that you are on the accurate trail. After ascending the final ridge, Kedar Bamak Glacier comes in the view along with its frozen lakes. The foot of Mt. Bhrigupanth and Mt. Thalaysagar fuses with the Kedar Bamak Glacier. An hour further into the hike shows a fascinating high altitude lake, the clean Kedar Tal. The appearance of Thalaysagar peak reflecting on the calm water of Kedartal is mesmerizing. Kedar Tal is situated at an elevation of 4780 mts above sea level. AMS is quite popular at such height so it is beneficial to go for an acclimatization hike.
Kedar Kharak – Gangotri
