Trekking is one of the most popular activities in Gomukh. The popular trekking route starts in Gangotri and after covering a distance of 22 km ends in Gomukh. Sometimes, trekkers can spot Bharals here. Bhujbasa is situated at a distance of 4 km from here. Tourists can stay here for one night in the bungalow of Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam Limited. After trekking around 5 km from here, trekkers can reach Gomukh, where the snowy peaks seem to warmly welcome the guests. The trekking to Tapovan and Nandanvan starts from Gomukh.
The trekking route becomes more challenging after Bhojbasa owing to big boulders and landslides; hence, trekkers are advised to be accompanied by guides. The climb towards Tapovan is stiffer still; trekkers have to climb 70 degrees within 2 km to a height of 1500 feet. Therefore, it is a very challenging experience for trekkers.
