Gangotri Tour Packages

Dedicated to Goddess Ganga, Gangotri is one of the prominent Hindu shrines in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. Nestled at an altitude of 3,048 m, Gangotri Temple was built by Gorkha General Amar Singh Thapa in the early 18th century. Gangotri is one of the Char Dham Yatra destinations, which devotees visit in great numbers. You can book Gangotri tour packages and embark on a holy sojourn to this sacred shrine with us.

The shrine remains closed due to heavy snowfall during the winter months (from November to March). However, the idols are shifted to Mukhba and Kharsail in the Uttarkashi district from Gangotri Temple. But from April again, they are transferred back to their original place for the rest of the year. The initiative is taken by the Uttarakhand Government so that you can worship the deities all year long. 

Through our Gangotri tour packages, you can also go for excursions to nearby places such as Tapovan, Uttarkashi, Kedar Tal, Gomukh, and Dayara. These tour packages are customizable and you can modify the itinerary according to your requirements. Contact us to get in touch with our travel experts and they will help you plan the tour accordingly!
