Dodi Tal lake in Garhwal Himalayas -
mysterious, alluring, and simply beautiful
! It is at an elevation of 3024 meters
above mean sea level, north of Uttarakashi.
Crystal clear waters are surrounded by
dense Oak Woods, Pine, Deodar and Rhododendrons.
The lake is full of fishes and is known
for some of the rare species like the
Himalayan Golden Trout.
The trek from Dodital to Yamnotri takes
you through high altitude grasslands and
dense virgin forests. The scenery en-route
is really astounding ! The trek for Dodi
Tal commences from Uttarkashi or Kalyani,
which can be approached by motor. Kalyani
to Agoda is a gradual climb through woods,
fields and villages along• a mule
track. The trek from Agoda to Dodi Tal
is steep and through thick forests.
