Dodital trek is popular among trekkers for the pristine beauty of the Dodital lake, nestled among mountains at an altitude of 3310 mts above sea level. It is a beautiful alpine lake in the Garhwal Himalayas. It is supposedly the birth place of Lord Ganesha and there is a temple which is dedicated to Lord Ganesha
The trek to this iconic lake takes you through dense Oak, Rhododendron and Maple forests. During the trek experience the mesmerizing views of Dhauladhar and Greater Himalayan Ranges.
Get a chance to camp on meadows under the clear night sky surrounded by mighty peaks.
Dodital lies very close to the Uttarkashi in the Gangotri valley in the Garhwal section of Uttrakhand. The Char Dham lies in Uttarakhand and is thus called Dev Bhoomi (Gods abode).This area is a major Hindu tourist/pilgrim destination. The native language is Garhwali and the people are often referred as Pahadi (Mountain folk).

We’ve been organizing treks for over four years and have had many female trekkers trek with us. In fact, a lot of them come solo for treks. There has never been a complaint about the atmosphere of a trek, about other trekkers or our professionalism. They have all been kind enough to leave a review.
In all the camps where the accommodation is in guest houses/home stays, there will be proper toilets. On the day of camping, we will have toilet tents, the standard, most hygienic way of answering nature’s call. A deep pit will be dug in the ground and once you’re done, you will have to use a shovel & throw in some dirt from a mound of dirt kept nearby. These will be dry toilets with no water hence please carry tissue roll for the toilet tent (refrain from using wet wipes as they are not bio degradable), for the rest of the days, you can carry rolls as per your convenience.
Yes, you are ideally expected to carry your backpack. But you do have an option of offloading your bags on a mule for an additional cost. The cost will be 400/ per day per bag. One is expected to inform us about offloading 1 week prior to the trek
Yes. This is an ideal trek for first timers
A trekking pole is advised. It will help you balance better. However, it’s not compulsory. Gaitors and microspikes will be provided if the situation demands the same. A good padded jacket and trousers are a must if trek is in winter.
