What is so special about Satopanth Lake Trek?


Satopanth Lake is a snow-shaped lake situated in the Himalayan Mountains in Uttarakhand. Nestled at the foothills of Chaukhamba peak, it is one of the picturesque lakes of Uttarakhand.

There are many legends related to this sacred religious lake.  Two of these stories are most famous among the people.  The name of the lake means Satopanth, 'Sato' meaning 'truth' and 'Panth' meaning 'way', meaning 'way to truth'. According to the legends, the Pandava of Mahabharata went to heaven through this 'path of heaven', hence the name of this lake was Satopanth Lake.  It is also called the way to heaven on earth.

According to the local people, Tridev- Brahma, Vishnu had come to this lake on the day of Mahesh Ekadashi. The three deities took holy dip standing at different corners of the lake, hence the lake is said to be in the shape of a triangle.


Because of these stories, Satopanth Lake has special and great importance in Hinduism.
