About Satopanth Lake

Satopanth Lake is a triangular lake along with crystal clear green water located at a height of 4600 meters above the sea level. Decked out in the middle of snow-covered peaks, trek to this beautiful place is sure to offer you breathtaking views. Satopanth Lake trek is often a popular trek in Uttarakhand from where you can enjoy magnificent sights of Himalayas. The waterfall of Vasundhara is surely a treat to your eyes, while the campsite at Chakratirtha will give you exciting views of Satopanth glacier along with Swaragrohini as well as Chaukhamba mountains at the background. Satopanth Lake trek is known to have sacred and prehistoric importance because it is said that Lord Vishnu on the day of Ekadashi took bath in this lake. However, it is the only place where all Hindu Gods gather in order to board their heavenly charisma. Bathing in this lake on the 11th day of cosmological and astral fortnights is considered very fortunate. Though the Satopanth Lake trek is a little bit difficult but offers you stunning sights of nature. May to June and September to October is considered the best time to go for Satopanth Lake trek. So get ready to experience some spectacular sights of Himalayan peaks.
