    The scenery changed so rapidly and distinctly that we were be left gawking and gaping at the capriciousness of Nature. When we reached Uttarakashi, all that met our eyes was destruction- boulders spilled around, the land stripped of any life, mud slides and debris- but as we pressed further on, far from human habitation, Nature was back to her abundant best. The unchecked advance of urbanization is a great cause for disasters like this. Where the mountains were left alone, the land has healed quicker. Around Dodital, nothing bears any trace. The forests are rent with birdsong and the rhododendrons are burdened with blossoms. The trek to the Darwa Top, albeit the steep incline, was worth it for the splendid views.

     

    About Dodital Trek

    Dodital is a freshwater lake located in the Garhwal Himalayas at an altitude of 3050 m. It is popular with trekkers as the gradient is mostly constant. The emerald lake sits amidst mixed forests of oak, deodar and rhododendrons. Dodital gets its name from "dodi" which translates to trout in the local language. Another name of the lake is Dhundital because according to legend this was the birthplace of Lord Ganesha and the "Dhundi" is His symbol. In summer, the forests along the way come alive with birds. One can spot the Himalayan Whistling Thrush, Red-billed Blue Magpie, Himalayan Tree Pie, Himalayan Babbler, Bush Robin, Pink Finch, Brown Fronted Woodpecker and many other birds.
