Chirbasa (3,350 meters) literally suggests 'abode of chir or pine trees'. The route from Chirbasa to Bhojbasa can turn out to be dangerous because of loose rocks falling on the trail. Bhojbasa is also written as Bhojbasa. Bhojbasa is a vast open expanse of land in the valley. 

The Himalayan peaks visible during this trek are Shivling, Thalay Sagar, Meru, Bhagirathi III etc. In recent times, the retreat of the glacier has quickened extensively. Major steps have been taken by the government of Uttarakhand towards this severe problem. Now only 100 persons can trek to Gaumukh each day.
