Overview

Expedition to Mount Shivling (6,543 metres high peak) is a pilgrim’s delight as the area reverberates with many things sacred and holy in Hinduism. The mountain’s name refers to its similarity with Shiva-Linga,a famous Hindu deity.

Because of its unique pyramid like conical shape, Mount Shivling has also earned the sobriquet of ‘India Matterhorn’ (A 4478 m Swiss peak in Alps). This similarity could have been starker if not for Shivling’s more than 2100 metres higher altitude! This visually very striking rock peak is a famed prize for mountaineers for the difficulty of the climb.

One of the most beautiful and enticing peaks of the Garhwal Himalaya Region in the state of Uttarakhand, the trek to Mount Shivling, a twin-summit mountain, passes through the precincts of Gangotri, one of the biggest glaciers in the Himalayas and Tapovan, a beautiful lush meadows, both being also popular pilgrimage sites in Hinduism.
