The only thing we really keep in this world are experiences. We give up everything else. The Himalayas are an asset to India and even though geographically we have studied them, we rarely understand and appreciate them and try to be one with them. Explore the flora, fauna, avifauna, local culture and local recipes which are as important as reaching a peak or crossing a pass. So, get high on the Himalayas!
Experience Dodital, a famous lake in the western garhwal himalayas. Do you know that it's popular among trekkers and many visit the lake from hanuman chatti side as well as from Barsu side via dayara bugyal?
Day 1/2: Travel from Haridwar to Bhewra via Uttarkashi. You have meals on the way and trek 2 hours Sangamchatti onwards. You move further to Dodital the next day with an 8 hours trek amidst terraced village farming and dense oak, pine and deodhars
Day 3/4: Hike a little to the Darwa Top and capture magnificent Himalayan views. Return to spend some time with the rippling lake waters. Move back to Bhewra village the next day, tracing back footsteps
Day 5: Start early to reach Uttarkashi in the morning itself. Drive post lunch to reach Haridwar by nightfall
