The Sacred Lake Of 

Baraadsar

Baraadsar is located  at a height of 4300m between Rupin and Supin valleys in Western Garhwal. In 2010 the trekking community was not familiar with Baraadsar but the lake is popular among the village folk as it is considered sacred for them. Legend has it that a prayer inBaraadsar never goes unanswered. We starting trekking from the Rupin Valley and the initial approach was through various villages, then throughforest and subsequently over a ridge separating the Rupin and Supinvalley’s. 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. We get commanding views of a massive bowl-shapedsnow field that resembled a cauldron. There are high ridges in all directions and in the middle of this ‘cauldron’ slightly lower down lies theBaraadsar Lake. The Lake is about four hundred metres long and remains frozen for most of the year. We descended into the Supin Valley tocompete the trek.
