Dodital is one of the most picturesque Himalayan journeys on that you can embark. Our destination is an emerald lake which is seems to be magically placed between a nest of coniferous forests. It is located at an altitude of 3100 Mt’s ASL. The best thing about this trail is that it can be used all year long. Dodital is full of Himalayan trout and these are a sight to witness. You are going to be surprised at this location because the geography almost seems unreal to a first-time trekker. You get to see rhododendrons, Oak trees, pine trees and cedar forests. Tiny streams coming from the Himalayas feed this lake.
According to Hindu tradition, this lake is the birthplace of lord Ganesh. The other name of this lake (Dhundi-Tal) also suggests the meaning- lake of Ganesh. There is a small ancient temple situated by the lake. This location is the perfect campsite for anyone who loved the outdoors in all seasons.
Easy to reach all year long
- The trek is not too difficult and takes you through beautiful coniferous forests, grasslands and other majestic mountain landscapes. You cross hidden beautiful Himalayan villages. You will be crossing Agoda, Bhebra, and Manji. These are small settlements which are on either side of the small Assi Ganga that flows out of the Dodital. Since this is not a very high altitude trek, it is suitable for a wider range of trekking and camping enthusiasts. You get to experience a variety of things in a very short time and this is one of the reasons why trekkers embark on this trek in all seasons, often again and again.
