An ideal pick for the adventure seeking souls traveling across the globe, Bhagirathi Peak Climbing Expedition gives enough adrenaline rush to recall in later years. One of the most exclusive peaks in Garhwal Himalaya near Gangotri Glacier in Uttarakhand, Bhagirathi III reaches a height of 6454m on summits and claimed to be the 3rd highest among the Bhagirathi Group of Peaks. It is close to the other stalwart peaks of Thalay Sagar, Shivling and Meru. Technically difficult without being extreme this peak is dotted with beautiful rocks and surrounded form all sides by gigantic granite walls. Enchanting scenic views exhibited by the lofty snow-clad mountains instigates one to reach at summits without much wait.
