Day 07: Tapovan
For the lucky ones, being at Tapovan on a full moon night is a mesmerizing experience with the valley in full night & giant Shivling peak glowing in the moon light.
Dinner and overnight stay at the camp in Tapovan.
Day 08: Tapovan - Nandanvan
The route from Tapovan leads from the upper section of the meadow till down and onto the glacier. From Gomukh turn towards Nandanvan and steering on right one will be on top of the Gangotri glacier. The glacier runs between two ranges and the landslides make a layer of rocky moraine on the ice which makes the walking easier. After a walking for about a kilometer there is a vertical ascent. Big rocks enroute offer grips and footholds – although many of them are deceptive too.
Dinner and overnight stay in a camp at Nandanvan.
