Trek to Satopanth lake - Satopanth lake - Laxmivan

Satopanth lake with its crystal clear emerald waters is as situated at a height of 4,402 mtr above sea level. It is triangular in shape and has a perimeter of 1 kilometre.

Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva- the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer of the universe, are believed to be meditating at the three corners of this lake. The lake, an earthly replica of the Kshir-Sagar (sea of milk), is set in the midst of yawning glaciers and towering peaks. One is over - whelmed and held spellbound to see the entire surroundings providing the rare combination of " Divine Trinity " and unparalleled splendour of nature. On the day of Ekadashi, it is that Lord Vishnu takes a holy bath in the lake and for this reason, visits to Satopanth on these days are felt to be most auspicious and rewarding.

The journey from Vasudhara Falls to Satopanth is full of unexpected scenarios and natural hazards. Visitors are advised to plan this trip properly. It may be necessary to carry provisions and engage a team of helpers and guide and also take along with some preventive medicines.

Satopanth Lake is 25 km from Sri Badrinath and 4 km from Chakratirth.
