Overview

At a short distance from the sacred town of Badrinath, The glacial lake of Satopanth allures adventurists to add the accomplishment of one more impressive trek in their biography. Sequestering amidst the imposing ranges of the Garhwal region, this green triangular lake offers an ambiance of serenity. The lake is said to have a deep set connection with the Hindu mythology as the three corners of the lake are believed to be the sacred part of the holy trinity, namely, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh (Lord Shiva) who are reckoned to have meditated at three of the respective corners. Many devout pilgrims also trek to this lake for bathing here on solar and lunar fortnights as it is considered most auspicious.

Satopanth Lake commences from Mana Village, which is 3 km away from Badrinath and houses a natural rock bridge called Bhim Pul. The Satopanth Lake Trek is a bit hazardous but the risk is well rewarded with unparalleled scenic views. The trek boasts rich surreal views and requires glacial and boulder walks as well. During the trek, one has the opportunity to witness 400ft waterfall; Vasudhara Falls, pass through India’s last village, Mana and get incredible views of Himalayan peaks like Neelkanth, Chaukhamba and Swargarohini.
