Perched at an altitude of 14,640 ft above sea level, Tapovan or the forest of penance, comprises a rocky terrain, huge mountains and small streams. It is famous for the Gangotri-Tapovan trek, which is a heart-thumping adventure. The trek is a great option for first-timers who are keen on experiencing the majestic Himalayas in all their glory. It takes one through picturesque routes, diverting beyond lush forests and into craggy mountains. If trekkers wish to explore further, they can head to the nearby Nandavan. The best time to visit this place is from April to May.


The natural hot springs of Tapovan are another attraction that invite tourists. Believed to have curative properties, they often draw travellers to take a dip.
