Shivling in the Himalaya of India

Shivling ( 6543m )

Shivling is located in the Gangotri Group of peaks in the western Garhwal Himalaya.

It is in the state of Uttarakhand some 6km (4 miles ) south of the Hindu holy site of Gaumukh
- the source of the Bhagirathi River.

 Its name refers to its status as a sacred symbol of the Hindu god Shiva.

 It is known as " Matterhorn Peak " by Europeans due to its similarity with the Swiss peak.
 It is a dramatic peak and a coveted prize for mountaineers.
