Saifee expedition, October 1999

Tapovan also serves as the base camp for the climbers attempting to climb the Shivling peak

The climb to Tapovan was the last rite for the trekking group which had decided to return the next day to Gangotri, but
was the beginning of the excruciating journey for the expedition members. Silence, irritability, lack of humour and fatigue
were to become a part of the day, as we later found out.
