Trip description

The Dodital Trek

The Dodital Trek is one of Mother Nature’s hidden gems. Tucked away in the beautiful Himalayas, with its postcard-perfect lake and trees, standing in complete serenity . Summer or winter, day or night, this lake is perfect all year round, in all times of the day.

This trek really is an amazing combination of cultural exploration and wild nature! The trek is about 50km , and is an easy to mild hike to the famous Dodital Lake. We will have two days of trekking up to the lake, which reaches around 3024m, one day to lay by the lake and unwind, then we'll have a day dedicated to climbing to the Dawara Top, which reaches 4150m!

If you can’t seem to peel yourself from the lake, feel free to spend another day by the lake and chatting with the locals! Then we have two days of slowly going back down, with a stop or two on the way. We shall then experience places such as Rishikesh, Haridwar, and of course the epic Delhi! Relax, unwind, learn, speak, play, climb, walk, as we are taking you to pretty incredible places, which will open your eyes to a snippet of the spiritual side of India, and the beautiful nature contained inside of it, amongst the busy dusty road, and tooting horns.

What our explorers are saying

“couldn't stop exploring”

“Actually, this is a really recommended tour for independent travelers: Our tour guide was amazing and took us to all the cool places, but also gave us time to soak it in and do some exploring on our on. We really appreciated this rare combination.”
