    The Satopanth Lake left us breathless! The surface appeared like a mirror reflecting the mountains around. We scampered over a glacier and huge boulders - the last few kilometres were extremely strenuous - to reach the lake. The scenery changed every few hours - from dense birch forests to alpine meadows to glacial moraines - we experienced it all!

    About Satopanth Lake Trek

    Nestled in the Uttarakhand Himalayas, at an altitude of 4600 m, the Satopanth Lake is a mirror-like emerald hued lake that is considered sacred by the locals. According to legends, the Trimoortis- Brahma, Vishnu & Mahesh bathe here on auspicious days. There are birds that are endemic to the region who pick up fallen leaves from the lake to keep it clean. Locals say they are Gandharvas disguised as birds to safeguard the lake against all evils. The residents of Mana throw the ashes of the dead here. The lake is a glacial corrie lake formed by the Alkapuri Glacier. Most of the route winds alongside the Alaknanda River at altitudes over 3300 m. On the way we cross birch forests, alpine meadows peppered with lovely wildflowers, waterfalls and glacial debris.
