↬ Description

The walk to Sahastra Tal lake is also often referred to as “the lake of the gods” and the seven lake trek. The district of Uttarkashi in the state of Uttarakhand is where you’ll find it. The walk is encircled on all sides by breathtaking valleys: to the west is the Bhagirathi Valley, and to the east is the Bhilangana Valley. Both of these valleys may be found on the Indian subcontinent. The Kush Kalyan Plateau is a high ridge that can be found to the north of this lake. It is flanked on each side by a number of other smaller lakes of varying sizes. On the highest point of this hill is where you’ll find the lake. Locals place a high level of importance on the lake’s spiritual significance; as a result, they perform an annual rite in which they carry their god on their shoulders while walking around the lake. The locals also tell a story about this lake that involves a monarch who, after completing a rite in the lake, presented one thousand sahastra flowers to Lord Vishnu as an offering. This story is connected to the lake.

Day 1: From Dehradun to Bhatwari drive

The first part of our first day will be spent travelling by car from Haridwar to Bhatwari, which is situated at an elevation of 5000 feet. We are going to drive a total of 220 km, and it is estimated that it will take us around 10 hours to reach our goal. We will go via Rishikesh, Chamba, and Dharasu on the way to our destination. Bhatwari also serves as the district tehsil’s administrative centre. The Bhagirathi Canal will be our route as we go north. After reaching our destination, we will check into a lodge for the night and spend the night there.

Day 2: Trek from Bhatwari to Gairi 

Along the path that leads from Uttarkashi to Gangotri, our walk will start with a descent of approximately half an hour from Bhatwari to Malla. A little hamlet known as Malla may be found on both the left and right banks of the Bhagirathi River. After we cross the bridge over the river, we will finally arrive in Silla, the very last village. After traversing the settlement, we will continue our ascent by following a trail that winds through the evergreen mountain forest. After a walk of four to five hours, we will reach Gairi, which is the only location beyond Silla that has water and serves as a cow pasture for local farmers during the monsoon and summer months. This is where we will be sleeping for the night.
