1. First the stretch between Gangotri to Gomukh(nearly 18 kms) is to be declared a eco sensitive zone.
2.Visitors/tourists should be provided with paper bag dustbins so that they do not pollute the stretch and nearby a waste treatment plant to be established to treat the same.
3. To decrease river bank errosion tree like 'devdarru" to be planted on either side
3. Any proposed dams on the stretch to be scrapped out immediately as it increase the temp. of the area leading to receding of gomukh

Please don't make going to these areas easily accessible. Number of people visiting these areas will increase thus aiding pollution. people should be encourage to trek on foot with backpack to theses areas on foot like manasarovar yatra so that they can enjoy with nature and numbers are restricted. At most build some pathways so that people can walk and climb.This will preserve the area and also bring revenue to local people as tourist will spend more time and enjoy their experience.

Absolutely true, if you want to eradicate the problem then identify the origin, but we are lucky thai in our case our problems origin is not suffering but it surely needs protection and development,
Areas around Gangotri & Gaumukh isn't industrialy dense so main concern should be protection of forest around these areas and keeping the area clean and promoting tourism on same hand, vehicle used in these areas should be pollution free

Locals need to be educated along with the tourists. It is generally seen that local vendors and tourist litter these areas. Make provision for lots of dustbins in places where tourists visit. Green electric kiosks should be used by vendors. Vendors should be made responsible for the garbage they generate. Plastic bottles and bags should be banned.

The ecosystem of mountain is very sensitive. A few factors may damage it in a great manner. So if we think about Gangotri and Gaumukh then it become most delicate as it is directly related to our holy Mather Ganga and its origin. The main factor of consideration is the balance of eco system with the changing pace of climate. More and more plantation required at the sides of river. The number of tourist is to be limited. The wild life is to preserve. The sides of origin to be made landslide free.

River Ganga starts from Gaumukh and named as Ganga. The passage of Ganga starts clean but the way it ends is pathetic more and more when it is leaving the state or even country in terms of cleanliness. I discovered that Ganga water is not only sacred, but its specialty lies in its storage. It seems Ganga water stays fresh for more than 3 days and British people before our independence use to carry Ganga water for officials... please verify document for more details..
