A tranquil morning at Gangotri
A famed town set in the district of Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand state of India; Gangotri is one of the four holy sites in the Char Dham pilgrimage circuit. Even the buffeting wind here carries the feel of utmost devotion amidst echoing chants that takes you to another world. The morning sunrays will not scorch you but give you the pleasure of chillness as the misty rays glide over the snowy mountain slopes of the mighty Himalayas.
It is quite an adventurous trek to reach the Gangotri (Gangothri) temple, dedicated to goddess Ganga, located on the Greater Himalayan Range, at a height of around 3, 042m. Try to be in Gangotri Temple at least once to feel the real dawn ambience.
