6 days trip with 4 days trekking
June 15- 20 , 2018
In June 2011 a team from Juniper attempted to reach the high altitude lake, Saru Tal in Western Garhwal. The lake is in the depression below the rock face in the middle of the image. While it was disappointing to not reach Saru Tal, the walk up from Sankri to Saru Tal and the return to Taluka after the climb was breathtakingly beautiful as one walks on long meadow stretches blanketed in wild flowers. The meadows lead on to one of the most stunning ridges one can possibly trek on in the Himalayas and the Shadow of Saru Tal has been carved out from the initial exploration to Saru Tal.
