Satopanth Tal Trek

Satopanth - Glacial Lake of Divinity

Satopanth Tal is an untouched glacier lake at an altitude of 15100 ft. With the shape of a triangle, it is hidden amidst the majestic Garhwal region. Satopanth Tal(Lake) has a very rich history. It is considered to be a religious place for the locals. It is believed that the trimurt his(triple deity of the divinity in Hinduism), Brahma, Vishnu, Maheswara meditated on its three corners. Some articles say that at the end of the Mahabharata, Pandavas took the route from Mana village to reach the steps to heaven which is on the Swargarohini glacier via Satopanth Tal. Steep altitude gain can be one of the most challenging things on a trek. As you climb up, oxygen levels in the atmosphere decrease. The respiratory organs and the heart are forced to function more heavily. Acute breathing problems might also occur.Satopanth Tal is a high altitude lake located in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand 

The trail to Satopanth tal is one of the beautiful trails in the Garhwal region. You cross Mana, India’s last village, the famous Vasundhara waterfall. Sahastradhara which has more than 100 waterfalls can be spotted on the trail.
