About Gaumukh

Gaumukh or Gomukh derived its name from the fact that the end of the Gangotri Glacier resembled the mouth of a cow. Gomukh is the original source of the River Bhagirathi, a main tributary of the Ganges. Gomukh is situated at the base of Shivling, with the Tapovan meadow in between and at a distance of around 18 km from the Gangotri town.
