Hi

I planned to visit Gangotri and Gomukh in the Aug 15th week (from Aug 12 to Aug 20)

Wish to know whether we can make it to Gomukh in August. Will there be heavy rain ?

Also where do I get the permit for Gomukh. Can I get the permit after reaching Gangotri or do I need to get it in Uttarkashi.

Please advise.

Thanks

Uttarkashi for permit

August 15 officially rain season ends but you would get showers in august. Take your permit from Uttarkashi as some restrictions are there due to limit of entries.

Yes you can get the permit at Gangotri, that should not be a problem as the quota will undoubtedly be available as it's not going to be busy... because, we have had extraordinary rainfall since the first few days of May, which is likely to continue through August - for it usually does.

You may not be able to actually reach the snout of the glacier for the last stream is likely to be rushing, (name I've temporarily forgotten) and thus impossible to cross. Of course it may all be ok, who can definitely say? However be prepared to abort the trek and do some alternative thing.
