Register rapidly this spiritual adventure is limited to a group of twelve persons to ensure you an ultimate experience in the best conditions.
Since the trek is reaching an altitude of 4000 meters some people might feel the effects the altitude but this will be greatly minimized by 3 days of acclimation in pilgrim village of Gangotri.
We nonetheless require all the participants to be in a very good shape. The three days trek is not so difficult in elevation but the lack of oxygen make it surprisingly more difficult than usual.
