Dodi Tal - Darwa Top Trek

Dodital is at an altitude of 3024mts, an emerald lake surrounded by dense forests of Oak, Pine and Deodar which looks more beautiful in winter. The lake is filled with Himalayan Golden Trout, but angling is prohibited to facilitate re- stocking. The Surrounding forests are rich in wildlife and one can also see a wide variety of birds. Occasionally, the Himalayan Black Bear may be sighted, as can a large number of unusually Coloured butterflies. The trek is tough in winter due to snow condition. It begins from Sangam Chatti 15 kms away from Uttarkashi crossing a bridge over the Assi Ganga. Dodi Tal is 22 km. from Sangamchatti. First day trek is approx 12 km. and we camp at Debra. Second day we reach to Dodital after 14 km. trek. Third day trek is to Darba Top and back to dodital. Fourth day is 22 km. trek and we return to Sangamchatti.
