Dodital trek
The Dodital trek is a short, easy to moderate trek, through dense forests, across small stream crossings, large meadows and magnificent Himalayan landscapes.


Our trek route starts from Kalyani ( sangam chatti ) road head near Uttarkashi and finishes at Hanuman Chatti. The route is a nature lovers delight. Maximum altitude reached on the trek would be 4250 m at Darwa summit.

Dodital is a beautiful lake, surrounded by thick forest of oak, fir and rhododendron. The lake is approximately hexagonal in shape, and is inhabited by golden trout, which gives its name. ( Dodi means trout in the local language ). Reference to the Dodital lake are there in the Puranas, where it has been described as one of the holy lakes. It is the source to about 80 rivulets which merge to form the Assi Ganga, due to which the valley is also called Assi Ganga valley ( Assi means 80 in the local language ). The Assi Ganga meets the Bhagirathi at Gangotri.

We would further trek beyond the Dodital lake, across Bakaria khaga pass ( also known as Darwa pass ) near the Darwa top, to camp at the vast meadows of Kanasar. Darwa top offers magnificent views of Banderpoonch and Swaragrohini massifs.
