There are two options by which you can get your Gaumukh Permit. One is an offline process and the other one is an online process which is carried out via Single Window System.

Offline Process

Visit the Forest Office in Gangotri and submit your application regarding your visit to Gangotri National Park for Gaumukh Trek. With the application submit Govt ID’s of yourself and other trek participants also. The permit process can take a day or two. Once you have obtained your permit you will need to show it to National Park Check Point.
