Why Dodital Is A Must-Do Trek?

A hidden paradise in the lap of the Uttarakhand Himalayas, Dodital is one of the most beautiful high-altitude lakes in the northern part of India. The emerald lake nestles in the lap of the mighty mountains and offers a very serene tranquil environment. The lake derived its name from the Himalayan trout that are locally known as Dodi. It is one of those rare lakes where you can find Himalayan trout.

It is a 22 km trek from Sangamchatti and is an easy trek that becomes moderate if you also include the Darwa Pass. From Darwa Pass, you can see a wide range of Himalayan mountains. The Dodital Lake is 1.5 km in circumference and is surrounded by Deodar trees all around. There is a temple located on the corner of the lake dedicated to Lord Ganesha. According to the legends, it is said that Lord Ganesha was born in this place.

For bird lovers, Dodital Lake is a great place to spot avian species like Bush Robin, Tailor Bird, Grey Shrike, Pink Finch, Himalayan Whistling Thrush, Common Chiffchaff, Himalayan Tree Pie, and Himalayan Monal. This lake trek is a great choice for both trekking enthusiasts and nature lovers. The easy grade of the trek makes it suitable for anyone who wishes to venture into the world of trekking in the Himalayas.

Itinerary
Arrive At Uttarkashi

The trek starts from a small village called Sangamchatti which is about 12 km away from Uttarkashi. Today, you will drive from Dehradun to Uttarkashi. We will pick you up from the designated point and drive to Uttarkashi, which is about 140 km away from Dehradun. It takes about 5 to 6 hrs to reach the destination. The drive is long and goes through twists and turns on the Himalayan roads passing through forests and many religious temples.

Uttarkashi is a religious town located on the banks of the River Bhagirathi and is also home to the NIM Mountaineering Institute. It is popular for its rich cultural heritage and immense natural abundance. Sweeping mountain views, decorate the town on all sides. The entire town is lined with many temples and holy places. The Vishwanath temple is the most popular here and is located in the center of the town. It is one of the oldest temples of Lord Shiva. The entire temple is a huge site that comprises other shrines of Markandeya Rishi, Ganpati, and Sakshi Gopal. While you are at the premises take full advantage of the Akhand Abhishek and Akhand Jyoti. They are of prime importance and bring happiness.

An interesting thing that you will observe at Vishwanath Temple is that the Shivalingam is almost 56 cm in height and there’s a slight tilt in the southwards direction. There’s also a Nandi Statue outside the temple. When in Uttarkashi also visit other notable temples like Markandey Rishi, Kuteti Devi, Sakshi Gopal, Gopeshwar Mahadev, Koteshwar Mahadev, and Sakshi Gopal Temple.

Apart from pilgrim spots and temples, Uttarkashi is also a hub for all adventure lovers as it serves as the base for many popular treks like Dyara Bugyal Trek, Kedartal Trek, Sartal Trek, Har Ki Dun Trek, etc. Uttarkashi has a considerably big market, so if you want to withdraw any cash from an ATM or buy some last-minute miscellaneous stuff for the trek. We will stay the night in a hotel at Uttarkashi and continue on our journey the next day.

Drive From Uttarkashi To Sangamchatti And Trek To Bebra via Agoda

The starting point of the trek is at Sangamchatti, which is a 45-minute drive away from Uttarkashi. Sangamchatti lies beside the Assi Ganga River, which originates from the Dodital Lake and this river will accompany you throughout your trek.

The winding trail takes you through beautiful green landscapes, which are covered in snow in winter. About 5 km into the trek you will arrive at the village of Agoda. From here you can see Bakra Top and Dayara Bugyal in the distance. The trail from Agoda to Bebra is not very steep compared to the one from Sangamchatti to Agoda. From Agoda, it is a downhill route to Bebra as Bebra is located in a valley. The trail to Bebra is dotted with tea shacks, so you can stop and re-energize yourself if you ever feel like it. You can expect to reach Bebra by early evening. 

Bebra is an idyllic village sitting near a gushing stream and green fields all around. You can spot local farmlands of potatoes, beans, and Rajma here. We will pitch up our tents here. Dinner and overnight stay will be in the tents. After a sumptuous dinner, you will head into your tents to rest for the night and wake up well-rested for the next day's trek.

Bebra To Manjhi

Get excited as today you will trek to Dodital Lake. Dodital Lake is situated at an altitude of 10,900 ft and it is located approximately 6 km away from the Manjhi campsite. If you are going in winter, the trail will be covered in snow and the lake will be frozen, however, the trek will be fairly easy.

The lake is situated in such a picturesque location that it is a true delight for all nature lovers as well as photographers. The view of Dodital Lake begins to up as you inch closer to the end of the trail. When you get the first view of the lake, surrounded by the snow-covered mountain peaks, the image stays in your mind forever. The vast expanse of the mountains and the tranquil environs of the lake will fill you with a sense of peace and fulfillment - a perfect remedy for your tired soul.

Tonight we will camp near the lakeside and on a clear day, you can see a canopy of stars up above at night. You will reach Dodital by afternoon and thus you will have ample time to explore the surroundings of the lake. You can also visit the Ganpati Temple located at the corner of the lake. As per mythology, Dodital is believed to be the place where Dinner will be served hot at the campsite and at night you will stay in your tents.

Trek From Dodital To Darwa Top and Back

Wake up to a beautiful view of the lake and that of the Bandarpoonch Massif. Today, we will trek to Darwa Pass, which is situated at an altitude of 13,300 ft and opens up a panorama of mighty Himalayan peaks.  We will start early in the morning. It’s a 5 km steep hike to Darwa Top.

The initial part of the trek is quite beautiful and is dotted with Rhododendron trees. As you keep gaining altitude towards the summit, the tree line starts to fade away slowly and mountain views begin to open up. The last leg of the trek is particularly difficult as you have to trudge on a steep and long trail. But once you reach the top, you will realize that the climb was totally worth it with the rewarding views ahead. From Darwa Top you can clearly see the Bandarpoonch Massif and some other peaks of the Greater Himalayas including Draupadi Ka Danda (5,600m), Srikanta (6,140 m), Jaonli (6,000 m), Kala Nag (6,387 m), and Swargarohini group (6,200 m).

After spending some time at the top and relishing the views, we return to Dodital Lake. In winter, it is not possible to go beyond Dodital so often we return from Dodital instead of moving ahead to Darwa Pass. You will be served delicious snacks on reaching the campsite and a sumptuous dinner at night. Overnight stay will be in camps beside the Dodital Lake.

Trek From Dodital To Sangamchatti And Drive Back To Uttarkashi

The last day of your trek and you will cover the longest distance today, a whopping 22 km in one hike. Trek down the same route that you came in. En route, you will again pass the villages of Manjhi, Bebra, and Agoda.

From Manjhi it is a rapid decline but you need to be mindful of the rocky paths. You can expect to reach Sangamchatti by early evening. After the end of the trek, we will head back to Uttarkashi, about 12 km from Sangamchatti. You will check into a hotel at Uttarkashi. Sleep well after your long day of trekking.

Drive Back To Dehradun

How To Reach

It is essential for everyone to arrive at Dehradun (06:00 am). 

Once you have reached Dehradun, TTH will manage the rest of your travel arrangements, if you have opted for TTH's pick-up service, you can select this option during the booking process by adding it as an add-on.

 

Options to reach Dehradun - First, you can arrive at Delhi, Dehradun airport or Chandigarh. The journey from these locations to Dehradun is explained below.

1. Take an overnight train.

2. Take a bus to Dehradun, and then take a cab to the pickup point (Railway station).

Delhi to Dehradun - 250km | 6hr.

Chandigarh to Dehradun - 220km | 5hr 

The distance from the Dehradun Bus Stand (ISBT) to the Railway Station is 6 km, without traffic, it will take 15 minutes.

We always recommend to go for the govt. Buses over the private ones outside the bus station as based on the experience we have found that there are very high chances of delay involved with private buses. Also, govt. Buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Dehradun at least by 05:30 am positively.

3. Take flight to Dehradun airport (Jolly Grant Airport) (25 km, 50 min), if coming by flight then come one day early.

 

The designated drop-off point is Dehradun Railway station.

Arrive in Dehradun Railway Station by 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

The distance from Railway Station to Dehradun Bus Stand (ISBT) is 6 km, it will take approx 25 minutes.

The distance from Railway Station to Dehradun Airport is 28km, it will take approx 45min to 1hr.

It's highly advisable to keep a buffer day in your travel plan. If the buffer day is not needed, it can be used to explore Dehradun/Mussoorie/Rishikesh.

If you prefer to travel independently to Base camp and don't want to take TTH's pick-up service, you can either take a government bus or book a private cab from Rishikesh. Your trek coordinator will provide guidance on how to arrange for the bus or cab booking.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.

Note

  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

Physical Fitness: Ensure your child is physically fit. Engage them in regular exercise, outdoor activities, and hikes to build stamina and endurance. Hydration: Emphasize the importance of staying hydrated at high altitudes. Encourage your child to drink water regularly, even if they don't feel thirsty. Proper Nutrition: Provide a well-balanced diet with sufficient carbohydrates for energy and foods rich in iron to prevent altitude sickness. Adequate Sleep: Ensure your child gets enough sleep in the days leading up to the trek. Quality rest is crucial for altitude adaptation. Educate on Altitude Sickness: Teach your child about the symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache, nausea, and dizziness. Encourage them to communicate any discomfort immediately. Appropriate Clothing and Gear: Dress your child in layers to adjust to changing temperatures. Ensure they have appropriate trekking gear, including sturdy footwear. Positive Mindset: Foster a positive mindset. Encourage your child, and let them know it's okay to take breaks when needed. Medical Check-Up: Schedule a medical check-up before the trek to ensure your child is fit for high-altitude activities. Consult with a healthcare professional about any potential health concerns.

TTH takes special care to provide wholesome and nutritious food for children on treks. Here are some of the foods that are typically served for children:
Breakfast: For breakfast, TTH serves a variety of options like porridge, cornflakes, bread, butter, jam, honey, boiled eggs, omelettes, and pancakes. Children can choose from these options to fuel themselves for the day's trek.
Lunch: For lunch, TTH serves lunch which includes rotis, vegetables, rice, dal, and salad. The rotis are usually made fresh on the trek and are a good source of carbohydrates. The dal and vegetables provide protein and other essential nutrients.
Snacks: TTH provides healthy snacks like fresh fruits, dry fruits, energy bars, cookies, and biscuits to keep the children energized throughout the day.
Dinner: For dinner, TTH serves a hot and wholesome meal which includes soup, rice, dal, vegetables, and a non-vegetarian dish (if requested in advance). Children can also choose from a variety of desserts like custard, jelly, and fruit salad.
Dietary requirements: If a child has any special dietary requirements, TTH can cater to those needs as well. For example, if a child is lactose intolerant or allergic to nuts, the kitchen staff can make arrangements to accommodate those requirements.

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:
