A view of Satopanth (7075m / 23212 ft) and its north flank from the Chaturangi Galcier.

In September 2010, PCS member, Arun Mahajan, joined up with an expedition from the UK, to climb in the Indian Himalaya. They journeyed into the magnificent mountain ranges of the Gangotri Glacier, which includes the peaks of Shivling, Meru and Bhagirathi in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalaya. They made an attempt on their main objective for this trip, Satopanth, the iconic chisel headed 7000m+ peak, in challenging weather conditions because of the monsoons not releasing their hold in the plains and the mountains. Along the way, they passed by Gaumukh, the source of the mighty Ganga (Ganges) at the terminus of the Gangotri Glacier

Come and experience the beauty and power of the Himalaya, the wonderful scenery and the incredibly helpful and humble people that that inhabit this beautiful corner of the world.
