SAHASTRA TAL TREK
Sahastra Tal lake trek is also known as “the lake of the gods” and the seven lake trek. It is situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. The trek is surrounded by beautiful valleys on the west and the east, on the west you will find the Bhagirathi valley and on the east, you will have the Bhilangana Valley. On the north of this lake, there is a high ridge called the Kush Kalyan Plateau which is surrounded by various other small lakes on both sides. The lake is situated at the top of this ridge. The lake is considered to be very auspicious by the locals and so they carry out an annual ritual by carrying their deity on their shoulders through this lake.
Another local fable related to this lake is that once a king after performing a ritual in this lake, offered a thousand sahastra flowers to lord Vishnu. Trekking in Uttarakhand is a must go for any enthusiast trekker as this trek offers you a view of the beautiful green meadows, wild fauna, and flora along with the chance to view some great peaks like Jaonli, Srikanth and other high Himalayan ranges. This place is often isolated and not very frequently visited by tourists or trekkers.
