Trek route to Bhoj Kharak

The 8 km trek to Bhoj Kharak starts from Gangotri and can be completed within 1-2 days, depending upon your stay. This swift trek will take you through the dense blue pine forests and you’ll gradually enter a mix vegetation zone of fir and bhoj trees. While trekking, you’ll be tempted by the roaring sound of the Kedar Ganga River (Emerges from Kedar Tal)  flowing on the left, deep down into the gorge.

Just before Bhoj Kharak, there is a steep and slant rock having a little space to walk on. The trekkers call it the Spider Wall. While it may seem to be formidable in pictures but it isn’t so. This tricky section can be easily traversed with patience but during early June or late October this rock is covered with snow and it becomes difficult to cross as one wrong move can drag you down to few hundred feet below. Right after conquering this tricky stretch you’ll reach the unsullied and ever so gorgeous Bhoj Kharak camping site. Pitch your tents and have a romantic betrothal with nature. If you have other plans at bay then you can descend downhill and reach Gangotri.
