Authorities say that the source of GANGA has shifted towards Nandanvan side of the Glacier. Due to breaking of the gangotri glacier the water is coming out of a new place more towards the Nandanvan side and the Goumukh the Cow's Mouth has dried up.

Gangotri Marg opened after 36 hours. The road was blocked near phool chhatti. Both Gangotri and Yamunotri marg worked for 5 hours and then got blocked. The road is blocked for last 8 hours.

As per the authorities - the road will be opened today though the rains still continue.

Heavy rains in the Gharwal side of Uttarakhand.
Mussorie to Yamunotri road blocked near Dharasu - this is the news. But mind it Dharasu in on Uttarkashi Yamunotri side of the road.

Tehri Jheel to have House boats and Scuba diving facility. Wonder what are they planning to show in the murky waters of Ganga.
