While trekking in Chirbasa, you will come across Gangotri National Park. Next campsite is Bhojbasa, which is also the last but one campsite. The trail from Bhojbasa unlike the earlier was not a well laid one. And you must cross the river on the way via a pulley-trolly system in order to continue the trail. From Bhojbasa it would be a long trail of 9 kilometers to the summit because you must take a to and fro journey from the summit completing whopping 18 kilometers in one single day.
