the spectacular and enchanting lake is situated at a distance of about 18
kms. from Gangotri. It is negotiable
through a rough and tough mountain trail. The lake is crystal clear with
the mighty Thalaysagar (Sphatiklin) Peak, providing the splendid backdrop.
The place is about 15,000 feet above sea level and is the base camp for trekking to the Thalaysagar, Jogin, Bhrigupanth and other peaks. The trek to Kedartal is a very tiring one and there are testing moments even for a seasoned trekker. There is no facility of any kind on the way and one has to make all arrangements in advance. It is advisable to take along a local guide.
