Pundrik Lake Trek: A Mesmerizing Weekend Getaway. Nestled in the serene surroundings of the Garhwal Himalayas, Pundrik Lake is a hidden gem waiting to be explored. Located at an altitude of 3,800 meters above sea level, the lake is surrounded by snow-capped peaks and lush green meadows, making it an ideal destination for a quick weekend getaway. The trek to Pundrik Lake is short yet challenging, offering trekkers a chance to experience the beauty of the Himalayas in just two days.
The car will be arranged from Aut, which is well-known for its Markandey Rishi temple on the banks of the River Beas. The trip will take us to Shangarh in two hours, covering a distance of 25 kilometres. A lake may be seen along the way at the junction of the rivers Beas, Tirthan, and Sainj. The walk begins at Ropa and gradually ascends, passing through a diverse range of Flora and Fauna. See the lush vegetation - Rhododendrons, Deodar, Spruce, and Fir trees abound in this area. After crossing many dams on the Sainj River, the valley ahead meets you with spectacular views of the steep peaks of the Raktisar glacier and the scenic Sainj valley.
Post breakfast, follow the same trail you followed yesterday to reach “Nudhada waterfall”. Pass through the thick forest section for half an hour till you reach Sarahan village. Ahead is Jehar Devta’s temple worshipped by the villagers. Enter a small forest clearing surrounded by deodar and pine trees and farms. Witness a number of colourful flowers and hear warming views. There is a temple dedicated to sage Pundrik, made of fine deodar wood and a government school is also present there for the local children.
