Chaukhamba, meaning four pillars is the highest mountain group of the Western Garhwal. The four peaks have hights of respectively 7138 7088 6995 and 6854m. On the western slopes starts the Gangotri glacier; one of the largest in the Himalayas (excluding Karakoram). The Gangotri glaciers gives rise to the Bhagirathi, one of the two main sources of the holy river Ganga. At the end of the Gangotri glacier (NW) is a better-known mountain: Shivling.
