Shivling

One of the sacred places in the Garhwal Region, Shivling is applauded for extending the most challenging trek route in the region and becoming the most favourite spot for adventure seekers.

Gaumukh known as the holy city is just 6 KM away from Shivling and thus the mountain is at an easily accessible location.

Tapovan meadow, yet another famous pilgrim centre is located between Shivling and Gaumukh. Climbing towards Shivling top started in the year of 1974 by Hukam Singh and group.
