about maldaru lake

The Maldaru Lake itself, about 400m in circumference, isn’t large. Its waters flow into the Supin River below. On a clear day, the lake reflects the Swargarohini massif, which looms over it. And from August to October, the stunning Brahmakamal flowers along its banks.

The lake shimmers over a boulder further east. This high-altitude lake in the Govind National Park in Garhwal’s Uttarkashi district which has been thrown open to trekkers via a new trail laid out by park authorities is highly revered by the residents of nearby Osla village, but trekkers have mostly bypassed it, moving straight on to the popular Har-ki-Dun valley instead.

Although a very tough hike it is absolutely worth it owing to the pristine beauty and the tranquil waters of the Maldaru Lake, are recompense enough.
