BARAADSAR LAKE TREK

Baraadsar Lake located at a height of 4300m between Rupin and Supin valleys in Western Garhwal. The trekking community is not familiar with Baraadsar but the lake is popular among the locals as it is considered sacred for them. Legend has it that a prayer in Baraadsar never goes unanswered. Starting from the Rupin Valley, the approach to the Lake is initially through various villages, then through forest and subsequently over a ridge separating the Rupin and Supin. The ridge walk, which takes close to three days, provides excellent views in all directions. The final climb takes one to a high ridge at 4400m overlooking the Lake and the view from the ridge is stunning. You get commanding views of a massive bowl-shaped snow field that resembled a cauldron. There are high ridges in all directions and in the middle of this ‘cauldron’ slightly lies the Baraadsar Lake. The Lake is about four hundred metres long and remains frozen for most of the year. You can descend into the Supin Valley and join the trail used by the locals if you are interested in a circular trek.
