↬ Description

Kedar Tal, often referred to as Shiva’s lake, is a glacier lake that can be found in the Garhwal area of the Himalayas in India. It is located at an elevation of 4,750 metres (15,600 feet). The snowfall that occurs on Mount Thalay Sagar (6,904 metres), Meru (6,672 metres), and Mt Bhrigupanth (6,772 metres), as well as other nearby peaks, is what feeds the lake. These mountains are also the source of Kedar Ganga, which, according to Hindu legend, is regarded to be Lord Shiva’s gift to Bhagirathi (a source-stream of the Ganges). This walk will have you believing in magic because to its close proximity to some very spectacular peaks and its breathtaking views. The lake itself is a brilliant sapphire blue, and it is both the most refreshing drink of water you will ever discover and a prized possession of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The sacred village of Gangotri, which is said to be the place where the Ganges River first sprang from the earth, serves as the starting point of this hike and adds to the overall appeal of the excursion. During the yatra season, the area comes to life with marketplaces, temples, nightly aartis, and woods full with sadhus offering their services. Set aside a few days towards the end of your journey to visit this area. The months of May, June, September, and October provide the most favourable conditions for hiking the Kedartal trail.

Day 1: From Dehradun to Gangotri drive

Your trip starts in Dehradun and concludes in Gangotri, Uttarakhand, which is also the beginning of the Kedartal trek. You need to be at Gangotri for the debriefing and the round of team introductions by three o’clock in the afternoon. You should go to the Holy Temple, take a stroll in the pine forests, do some shopping at the local market, start a conversation with a Sadhu, go to the subterranean cave, and eat some delicious food. I will be spending the night in a guest home in the neighborhood.

Day 2: From Gangotri to Bhoj Kharak

After a hearty breakfast, hikers leave Gangotri to begin their journey. You accomplish a significant amount of climbing for the day, and the Kedar Ganga is faithfully following you on your left the whole time. As you go up the mountain, the young pine trees gradually give way to a dense stand of birch trees. Following this path will bring you to Bhoj Kharak, the first campground we visit. In the distance, wavering rhododendrons of a deep purple colour can be seen, while birch trees provide much-required shelter. You are enticed from a distance to find out what is in store for you on Day 3 by the breathtakingly jagged appearance of Thalaysagar’s facade. The last challenge of the day is the Spider Wall, a slab of rock sloping at an angle of sixty degrees that has just enough foothold to get you to the other end. At Bhoj Kharak, you are going to spend the night in a tent camp.
