Pangong Lake

Pangong Lake in Ladakh is the world’s highest brackish lake at 14,256 feet above sea level.  A few years back the government decided to open it to tourists though the lake and its surrounding is under army surveillance.

Dodi Tal – Darwa Top – Dayara Bugyal Circuit Trek

Yesterday Mr. Kannan messaged me about the alpine style trek for this circuit and immediately I said yes!!

Even I was thinking of doing a solo trek ( without the help of porters or guides) but couldn’t plan it.

The Itinerary which is fixed by Kannan is like this

Day 0 (April 30): Dehradum -> Uttarkashi -> Barsu; stay at GMVN, Barsu
Day 1: Barsu -> Barnala Bugyal (6 km, 4hrs) -> Dayara Bugyal (6 km, 2.5 hrs) ; camp at Dayara
Day 2: Dayara Bugyal -> Nimdhar (16km, 6hrs); camp at Nimdhar
Day 3: Nimdhar -> Dodigad crossing -> Manjhi ; camp at Manjhi
Day 4: Manjhi -> Dodital (5km, ?hrs); camp at Dodital
Day 5: Dodital -> Darwatop (4115m) -> Seema (18km, 7hrs); camp at Seema
Day 6: Seema -> Hanuman Chatti (13km, 5hrs); stay in a hotel at Hanuman Chatti
Day 7: trek to yamunotri

I have starting my research for the trek…I have done good amount of trekking in Uttarakhand but this route is kind of new, very few people go for this except hardcore adventurers. Lets see if I can make this a popular  or not!!
