Gaumukh is a place that is located in the state of Uttarakhand in the Uttarkashi district and the place is the location where the Gangotri Glacier ends. Gaumukh is located near the Shivling and it is present in a spot where the River Bagirathi has its source. The river is one of the main tributaries of the River Ganga and the entire place is extreme scenic and breathtaking. Gaumukh lies near the Tapovan meadow.

Gaumukh is a traditional Hindu pilgrimage center and one can see many devotees who wish to bathe in the source of the River Ganges here. The waters are frigid and despite this many devotees brave the cold and take a plunge at this point.

The town of Gangotri is located near the place and it only 18 km away from the source of the river. One can take a trek from the town to Gaumukh. You can see many snow clad peaks from this point and this breathtaking view is also a reason why many people take the difficult trek to the place.

There are a few places where one can trek in the area. There are many rock-filled hill sides that are ideal for mountain climbing as well. One can see many prayer flags near the river bed.
