Gangotri Glacier


Gangotri Glacier is a well-known glacier in Garhwal Himalayas, situated in Uttarkashi district. The glacier originates at the northern slope of Chaukhamba range of peaks. This is not a single valley glacier, but a combination of several other glaciers are fed to it and form a huge mass of ice. The glacier lies within a span of 28 km and terminates at Gaumukh (4000 m). The glacier flows at a gentle slope except for a few ice walls and crevices developed in the upper regions of the glacier where, as in the lower part (above the snout), the glacier is covered by debris, which imparts a muddy appearance to its surface. The glacier is easily approachable. It is well connected by motor able road up to Gangotri temple and from there a 17 km, long bridle path follows along the right bank of the Bhagirathi river to Gaumukh, the snout of the glacier.
