Dodital mythology

Let’s trek to the birthplace of Lord Ganesh !!

Located in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand, Dodital is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Ganesha. Dodital is an emerald lake nestled amidst high mountains at an altitude of 3310 mts above sea level. At the lake there is a very famous Lord Ganesh temple where people have  a lot of religious beliefs.

The Trek

This trek is one of the most beautiful treks in Uttarakhand. The trekking route goes through oak and pine trees, and high altitude meadows which leads to the unmatched beauty of Dodital Lake, and the stunning Darwa Pass perched at 4,150 meters.

High altitude trek for beginners & amateurs.

The total  trekking distance is  just 56 km spread over 5  days and reaching a height of  3024m /4100m ( Dodital Lake / Darwa pass) . therefore it comes under easy to moderate grade of trek.

Also there is no danger of high altitude mountain sickness cause the whole route is covered by a  forest region.

The trail is not that abrupt and sheer as compare to other treks. So, beginners can easily do this trek.
