Serene beauty of Dodital Lake surrounded with beautiful mountains...... A moderate or easy trek for the beginners. The trek routes starts from Sangichat and passes through village Agoda, Bhewra and Majhi. An excellent trek full of greenery and river streams on the way to the Lake. You can also trek upto Darwa Top. The mesmerizing view of Himalayas on the way are something that will remain in your memories till the end. The Lake is a serene beauty surrounded with mountains and a small temple to compliment.

Dodi Tal ("tal" = lake) is a sight to behold if you are lucky enough to see it in a hail storm! We turned round the corner of the mountain and that's exactly what we saw! Guides are not necessary for seasoned trekkers as the paths are well-worn. However, this is a popular route for first-time trekkers in which case be cautious and hire guides! On different variations of this trek, Hanuman Chatti and Yamnotri are worth experiencing - especially the "sacred boiled rice" from the hot-springs!

One of the most amazing treks and places I have been to. Had come first time 32 yrs ago with Nehru Institute of Mountaineering and had to bring my family here to have the same experience. Pristine, untouched, Divine place. No mobiles, no electricity, only your camp site. Amazing place. The lake has the best Himalayan Trout which are a pleasure to see. The birthplace of Lord Ganesha and the temple is amazing. The temple pujari says that the lake is the confluence of 2 rivers and the water goes around a Shivlingam in the middle of the lake and flows out from the other side as the Assi Ganga River. Great trek, great place. A must visit.

Dodital is as much about the journey as the destination . Was my Second visit after nearly 11 years . Saw signs of progress , of so called development as well as destruction due to the 2011 floods. The lake itself has seen its share of natures fury - one full side is covered with rocks swept down the feeder stream. What used to be a small and pretty stream has now become a large ugly mass of rocks.

That besides , half a dozen government owned huts and houses have come up., including a Eco lodge as well as a forest rest house.

We put up in the forest rest house for two nights and it was a decent affair - neat , large and unfortunately like most such govt places it's dark and dingy even during the day .

The walk up to dodital , seemed tougher after all these years , however equally rewarding. The stopover at bhewra near agoda
Is now a small concrete village meant for the tourist hoards with places to stay and couple of dhabas cooking up dal chawla and Maggi on demand. Surroundings are still pretty though.

Overall a must do trek .

The temple goers in the area do get a bit noisy, and sometimes the camps of soldiers in training can also demand their own space.
But all said and done it is a place worth the trek up!

We stayed in tents at the camping area. Lovely place with majestic views of the mountain. What a place to land if you are trekking the long distance from Bevra or Sangamchatti. .The Ganesha temple is an ancient one..worth visiting. Don't miss circling the lake with your camera.

Well I visited the place at the wrong time of the year and voudl not see the reflections of the chaukhamba range in the lake.. this was. A great disappointment for me. So make sure you travel the place in the right time around October end of November when the skies are clear. The lake has good ample space for camping and you can get a tent for 800 INR per night. The food available is basic and restrooms are available too.

Dodital is a mesmerizing high-altitude lake situated at approx 3,024 m/ 9,921 ft ASL. A freshwater lake, it is home to the beautiful Himalayan trout.

It can be reached by an easy trek of 22 km starting at Sangam Chatti. Camping at Agoda/ Bhebra is required. One need not carry own tent as accommodation options are available at both Agoda/ Bhebra and Dodital. From Dodital, one can further trek 5 km up to Darwa Top, which is a steep climb & bit strenuous. Darwa Top, at 4,150 m/ 13,612 ft ASL, offers stunning views of the Bandarpoonch & Swargarohini range of Himalayan peaks.

Sharing below the trek itinerary –

Day 1 - Drive from Uttarkashi to Sangam Chatti – 16 km/ 1 hr; Trek from Sangam Chatti to Bhebra - 8 km/ 3-4 hrs
Day 2 - Bhebra to Dodital - 14 km/ 6-7 hrs
Day 3 - Dodital to Darwa Top & back to Dodital – 10 km/ 6-7 hrs
Day 4 - Dodital to Bhebra – 14 km/ 4-5 hrs
Day 5 - Bhebra to Sangam Chatti – 8 km/ 2-3 hrs

Our trek was led by Mr. Dharmbeer Panwar - mountain guide at The Alpine High, based out of Uttarkashi.

Team 4 Adventure - run by Sachidanand Swami, organised this trek for us.

Dodital is a small lake in the mountains near Uttarkashi - can be reached directly from Sangamchatti (a small road head) -
Can camp at Agoda or Bevra village on the way to Dodital. Agoda also has a forest rest house and a quaint guest house.

Dodital also has a forest rest house but camping would be a better idea.

Darwa top (4200m) is a 3-4 hour trek/climb which has fabulous views.

We trekked through an alternate route. Trek started from Barsu, with Dayara Bugyal & Dodital being the major highlights.
