The Satopanth Lake is a high-altitude lake situated at a height of 4880 metres above sea level and is of triangular shape. The trek to this lake starts from Mana Village which is 3 kilometres away from the holy town of Badrinath in Uttarakhand.
Mana is the last village near the Indo Tibetan border. The people and their lifestyle have cultural influences from both India and Tibet. The trail from Mana to Satopanth is picturesque with thick oak forests, alpine meadows and streams.
The lake is considered very sacred by the Hindus. It is believed the three important Gods- Vishnu, Shiva and Bramha had meditated here by the banks of the lake at three of its corners.
The trekking route to the Satopanth Lake that has crystal clear green waters provides splendid and charming views of the Garhwal Himalayas. Beautiful places like Lakshmi Ban and Vasundhara Falls will also fall on the way.
A trek to this divine glacial lake is therefore very much recommended.
The trek to the Satopanth lake starts from Mana village which is situated at distance of 3 kilometers from Badrinath, a holy pilgrimage spot for most Hindus.
We will start our trip from Rishikesh and arrive at Govindghat at first by road. The next day would be another round of road travel and we would reach Mana village from where the trek officially starts.
At first, we would trek to Lakshmi Ban from Mana and cover this distance of nine kilometers. The trek would then pass through Chakrateerth and we would finally arrive at Satopanth.
After witnessing this beautiful lake and the splendid views all around, we would our trek to Bandhar and then to Mana Village, thereby finishing this trek.
The whole duration of this trek would be of 6 nights and 7 days with some stops in between. We would mostly stay in tents during the full trek. The distance from Badrinath to Satopanth is approximately 22 kilometres.
