Dodital Trek (Hanumanchatti)
Dodital trek is a trek to fresh water lake situated at an altitude of 3,024 metres above the sea level. The lake can be reached by a moderate trek of 20 km which starts from a small village Sangamchatti in the Uttarkashi district. The Dodital trek passes through dense forests and deep valleys and takes you up to the Darwa top which is situated at 4,200 meters. The top offers amazing panoramic views of snowcapped peaks of Garhwal Himalayas.
Apart from the serene lake, the place also dwells one temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha and it is believed that Lord Ganesha was born here. That’s why there is one more name of this trek which is ‘Dhundital’ meaning Lake of Ganesha.
