Gaumukh Glacier

Gaumukh Glacier

Gaumukh Glacier is situated at a distance of 18 kms from Gaumukh at an elevation of 4000 mts above the sea level. Gaumukh glacier runs 30 kms long and 3 to 4 kms wide and is the largest Glacier of India, after Siachen. The terminus of the Gangotri Glacier is said to resemble a cow's mouth. That is why it is called Gaumukh (Gau meaning cow, mukh meaning mouth). Gaumukh is the source of Bhagirathi River which later after the confluence of Devprayag is known as Ganga River.
Around the glacier are the peaks of the Gangotri Group, including several peaks notable for extremely challenging climbing routes, such as Shivling, Thalay Sagar, Meru, and Bhagirathi III. It flows roughly northwest, originating in a cirque below Chaukhamba, the highest peak of the group.
