Road condition should be ok ...untill there is more landslide in between...

Second, Can i get the permit from Gangotri? I took the permission from Gangotri in Oct2008.

You can but there is a risk of reaching max capacity of pilgrimers...gangotri national park have a rule of allowing 125 person per day....

Third, I need to take tent for stay at tapovan or there are any Asharam OR GMVN tent are there?

At tapovan there is no GMVN bunglow but you can stay at mounibaba ashram....
Thanks in Advance !!!!
happy trekking...
Rules r meant to be broken
But!!!!!!
Don't break rules in Himalaya
Please Keep Himalaya clean & plastic free
