Photographer's Note

Mt.Shiblinga is dominating the sky here. It was very familiar trek from Gongotri to Gomukh for first two days. After that the very 3rd day we had to cross Gangotri Glacier,the source of river Ganga,the heart line of Northern and Eastern India. After 5 hours march through the fragile glacier we were at the feet of a almost 65-70 degree gradient stiff trail. After a strenuous climbing we reached a spectacular place called'Topovan'...a high altitude meadow and the base camp of Mt.Shiblinga.The height of this is not too much some around of 21000 ft but for the stiff construction it is very tough for climbing.
Place:Topovan
State:Uttaranchal,India
Altitude: 15000 ft
