Dodital Trek


Dodi Tal is an emerald lake nestled amidst high mountains at an altitude of 3,310 mts above sea level. With its serene setting and tranquil environs, Dodi Tal is arguably one of the most beautiful high altitude lakes of North India. Dodi Tal is named after the rare Himalayan Trouts known as Dodi in local language. This lake is one of the very few water bodies where Himalayan Trouts are found.

On one corner of the lake a beautiful temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. According to mythology this is the place where Lord Ganesha was born. The circumference of the lake is 1.5kms with dense deodar trees all around it. Dodi Tal can be reached in two days by trekking 22kms from Sangam Chatti. The trekking to Dodi Tal is easy but the trail gets moderate if you trek towards Darwa Pass.  A wide range imposing Himalayan range can be seen from Darwa Top.

Dodital is considered as one of the most beautiful lakes of India and it is extremely popular with nature lovers and trekking enthusiasts. The origin of this Tal is from the natural springs and the source of river 'Asi Ganga'.
