A moderate trek which starts from the Bhagirathi valley, goes up to the lake of Dodital (wrapped in perfect wilderness) to the alpine meadows and crosses over at Darwa Pass (4150 M) to the Yamuna watershed. Traditionally this trek has been continuously used by the Gujjars, the nomadic herdsmen who get their buffaloes to the high meadows every summer and occasionally by the pilgrims/sadhus walking between Gangotri and Yamunotri. This trek is a brilliant summer getaway.

The more adventurous ones can go higher up to climb the Darwa Top and the rest can proceed to camp at Kanasar (3900m) below the pass.

  • Day 5: Kansar – Kandoli (2800 M)

Long traverse in the meadow with impressive views of the Bandarpunch range brings one to the beautiful grazing ground of Seema. After having lunch here, we start our descent through the forest to our campsite at Kandoli, which has a few summer houses.
