Re: Satopanth Tal trek information needed 7 years, 3 months ago #305

Satopanth Tal -The Glacial lake @ 4600 mts , is around 25kms from Badrinath, It can be reached after a 5-6 day trek crossing Lakshmiban and Chakratirtha. The perfectly triangle shaped lake at the base of the snow crested Chaukhamba I peak, mirrors the snow crested Chaukhamba I peak. Satopanth tal trek is of moderate difficulty and is not recommended for complete amateur treks .

A typical itinerary the is followed for this is Haridwar - Day 1 - Hrishikesh - Joshimath. Halt.
Day 2: Joshimath - Badrinath - Mana - Chamtoli - Laxmivan. (Halt). - Day 3: Laxmivan - Bandhar - Chakrateerth. (Halt).
Day 4: Chakrateerth - Satopanth Tal. (Halt). - Day 5: Satopanth Tal - Chakrateerth - Bandhar. (Halt).
Day 6: Bandhar - Laxmivan - Chamtoli - Mana Drive to Badrinath.(Halt) - Day 7: Badrinath - Joshimath - Haridwar.st

Rishikesh/Haridwar is the nearest train station and Dehradoon is the nearest air-port , May & June are preferred seasons and you as far as I know , you don't really need any prior permissions to do this, but hiring a local guide / logistics team for your stay etc is recommended .
