Welcome to RC Baraadsar lake Trek in Uttarakhand   (India) – The best Summer trek in the Himalayas Uttarkashi District (Uttarakhand).

Those on the look out for a short trek in stunning surroundings should keep Baraadsar Lake as an option. Baraadsar Lake is located at a height of 4400mt between the Rupin and Supin valleys. The lake is virtually on the border of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh and can be approached by driving north from Mussoorie for 7-8 hours.

When it comes to trekking in our Garhwal in Uttarakhand (India) Baraadsar lake is a classic summer trek . The trek provides a great opportunity for  trekkers to see the scenic beauty and experience the life of remote villages, bitari, Doni, Kasla fhitari, Jakhol, Panchgai pati 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 valley . 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 4400mt 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.

from Masundha Dhar were special. Towards the east, the first rays started to hit the peaks. The refracted beams did something special to the Swargarohini (6,247m) – turning the air around the summit a bright orange and imbuing it with a halo. This is a mountain massif with four separate peaks. It is a dramatic mountain: its north face drops 2,000m in less than 2km and its south face is only marginally less steep – making it a challenging climb. Thanks to our excellent location, we were able to see all the four peaks of At 3,500m, we were above the tree line and vegetation had thinned out considerably. The hard work on day two meant that we had achieved most of the height gain required, and we now moved on flat sections along the Rupin-Supin ridge. At the head of the Supin Valley we could see views of the large meadow, Vishkhopdi, ‘vish’ being poison and ‘khopdi’ meaning brain. According to legend, those who visit the meadow in summer become intoxicated from the scent of the flowers.

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.

If there is a classic trek in Uttarakhand, it has to be the Baraadsar lake trek . This trek is like an orchestra, building up momentum with surprises in scenery every hour or so. With every step, the trek throws up a new vista to see, new scenery to unfold. All along, to complement the scenery, the blue waters of the Lake .

Through day two, the trail moved through fairly dense forest sections as we gradually gained height. We could see the Rupin river on its meandering course, winding on the valley floor far below, flowing to the west as we continued to head north. We came across small meadows and streams, which were great spots to take a break by. The continuous rain had washed the area into a bright green landscape. This was the longest stage on our trek, and it was with great relief that, late into the evening with the setting sun as a backdrop, we saw our tents in the distance.

Day 5After breakfast- Masunda Dhar to Ddalkadhar(Devbasa)

After breakfast- Masunda Dhar to Ddalkadhar(Devbasa) by trek 07kms in 5hrs, 3650mt. Over night stay in tents

Morning breakfast – start trek to Dev Basa (3,650m.) As we moved closer to the Baraadsar Ridge we noticed there had been a liberal spray of snow the climb seemed daunting By early afternoon we reached the base of the Baraadsar Ridge from where the final climb to the lake starts We were at Camp Dave Bhasa(3,650m.)
Early morning views from Masundha Dhar were special. Towards the east, the first rays started to hit the peaks. The refracted beams did something special to the Swargarohini (6,247m) – turning the air around the summit a bright orange and imbuing it with a halo. This is a mountain massif with four separate peaks.

Day 6After breakfast - Dev Basa to Baraadsar Ridge

After breakfast – Dev Basa to Baraadsar Ridge by trek 07 kms in 5hrs, 4,400mt. Over night stay in tents
Morning breakfast at Camp and Radi of pack Launch and Start trek of the Baraadsar Ridge walk meadows 6km, near Baraadsar lake we were looking into a massive there where high ridge in all direction and in the middle lower down in the Baraadsar lake in the back ground beyond the ridges view Neel Kamal, Fenkamal and Baramkamal famase Valley and mountain peaks; the minute they right sight of the lake our team of local porters started to pray and lit agarbatis in offering after return to meadow below Dav Bhasa.!!
Day four was one of the highlights of the trek. We walked along grassy slopes through the day, with the recurring feeling that we were in paradise. As we moved closer to the Baraadsar Ridge, we noticed there had been a liberal spray of snow: the next day’s climb seemed daunting. By early afternoon, we reached the base of the Baraadsar Ridge from where the final climb to the lake starts. We were at Camp Dev Bhasa (3,640m), which we nicknamed ‘the saddle’ due to its U-shaped appearance.
In the afternoon, we found ourselves in the middle of a massive hailstorm. By late evening it had abated and it seemed that peace would prevail on ‘the saddle’. We were quite wrong. Around 9pm, just as we had settled into our tents, looking forward for some much needed rest, gale winds started, threatening to blow our tents and us down into the valley below. Further reinforcements in the form of heavy stones were required to keep our tents and blood pressure down. Finally, towards the middle of the night, it all went quiet and we were able to get some sleep

we made good progress for it was fine weather. By 8am we were at 4,000m, where the snowline began. Around 9am the sun started to hit the slopes, turning the snow into slush, slowing us down considerably. The only benefit in moving in knee-deep snow was that, on the steeper sections, we were comfortable, not needing to be roped up. By 10.30am, we reached the top of the ridge at 4,400m and got our first peek at what lay beyond

Day 7After breakfast-Dev Basa to RalaVillage

After breakfast-Dev Basa to RalaVillage (fhitari Village) 13kms in 7hrs, 2,000m. Over night stay in tents
After breakfast – journey down through the Supin Valley, I reflected on the local belief surrounding Baraadsar lake. I remembered the man we had met at the start of our trek who had requested us to pray for the rain to let up. We were in the region for three more days as we made our way back down, and there was not a drop of rain. Apart from being overwhelmingly beautiful, perhaps there is something sacred about the waters of Baraadsar… Perhaps our trek had indeed been devinely blessed
