Satopanth is a secluded and untouched lake that lies close to the hustle-bustle of the holy town of Badrinath Hidden amidst the most impressive ranges of the Garhwal region, this bright green lake exudes grace and serenity. It makes for a perfect detour from a pilgrimage to Badrinath.
Although located just 22 km from the popular Badrinath, the trail has several hidden treasures. The short distance of Satopanth Lake Trek is well-compensated with a frequent change in sceneries.
