Gangotri Temple: Gangotri is the highest temple of Goddess Ganga and one of the four dhams of Uttarakhand state. Made up of white marbles the temple is situated at an altitude of 3,048mts above sea level. Gangotri offers scenic splendours of the rugged terrains, gushing water of Bhagirathi River and snow clad peaks.  Gangotri remains opened from May and get closed on the day of Diwali festival as the idol of the goddess is carried to her winter residence at Mukhba.

Tapovan: You can proceed to Tapovan and Nandanvan after reaching Gaumukh Glacier. the trek to tapovan is little difficult and hiring a guide is recommended for the trek as even seasonal trekkers find sometimes difficult to get around the route.Astounding views of Shivling and other major peaks of the Garhwal Himalayas are distinctly visible from Tapovan.

Bhairon Ghati: Near the confluence of Jat Ganga and Bhagirathi River lies a scenic Bhairon Ghati. It is located 10kms from Gangotri. The temple of Bhairav Nath is surrounded by dense forest which can be reached after travelling by road from Lanka to Bhaironghati and by crossing the Jahanvi River on foot.

Submerged Shivling: A natural rock Shivling submerged under water is an attractive tourist spot of Gangotri. It can be easily seen when winters are on their way because the water level decreases during this period. According to myths and legends this was the place where Lord Shiva received Ganga in his matted locks.
