Max Group Size
Satopanth Tal Trek is a challenging trek that takes you to the pristine and sacred lake of Satopanth, which is located at an altitude of 4,402 meters in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. This trek is not just about reaching the lake, but also about experiencing the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, including snow-capped mountains, lush green valleys, and meadows.
We will pick up from Haridwar Railway Station in the morning and then leave for Sankri around 6:00 am to 7:00 am.The journey to Joshimath takes 10 to 11 hours and follows the Ganga, Alaknanda, and Mandakini sacred rivers. At the meeting of the rivers Bhagirathi and Alaknanda, Devprayag is on the way. This location is lovely. There are abrupt changes in the scenery as you travel deeper, so the tour won't become monotonous. Arrive to Joshimath Base Camp, unwind in a hotel, and spend the evening exploring the surrounding area. Return, eat dinner, and have a relaxing stay in the hotel.
Drive to Badrinath after breakfast; settle into your accommodation; spend the day exploring; join the evening arti darshan; and have supper and spend the night there.
After breakfast, the drive is made to the last settlement, Mana, from where the trek begins. You may see Vasudhara Falls, which are located across from the Alaknanda River's bank, after a little hike. Gradually ascend to the Somtoli meadows, cross a landslide-prone section, and you'll see shepherd houses. To get to the campsite, pass through the boulder zone; there are many Bhojpatra trees there. The view of the Alkapuri glacier, which is on the other side, enhances the beauty of the surroundings. Build your camps, then turn in for the evening.
Today's trek is difficult; start off from Laxmi Van and aim for Chakrateerth. The ascent to "Sahastradhara," which means "Thousand waterfalls," is sheer via stones and scree. After ascending the valley, this location offers views of the Chaukhamba, Balakun, and Neelkanth peaks. Go ahead and cross the tiny brook to reach the levelled terrain. Now begin the ascent, and a short hike will take you to the Chakrateerth campground. Build your camps, then turn in for the evening.
Today's hike should be started early because there are several challenging trail parts to navigate. Reach the tranquil "Satopanth Lake" by ascending to the highest point of the mountain and hiking along the glacier. See Neelkanth Mahadev and the Chaukhamba peaks in awe. Explore and unwind for a while in the lovely surroundings. Place your tents there and turn in for the evening.
Return to Laxmivan more quickly by descending, but be cautious since certain sections are challenging. After a strenuous journey, arrive in Laxmivan, set up your campers, enjoy a sumptuous meal, and then go to bed.
Descent towards Mana village and you can reach there in 3 hours. From Mana the drive is towards Badrinath, arrangements will be made in a hotel there. Evening going to badrinath ji darshan
Go for Dehradun after breakfast, eat lunch along the way, and arrive there in the evening. 8 pm
