The Dodital trek is a short, easy to moderate trek, through dense forests, across small stream crossings, large meadows and magnificent Himalayan landscapes.
Dodital is a beautiful lake, surrounded by thick forest of oak, fir and rhododendron. The lake is also famous for golden trout (Dodi means trout in the local language). Reference to the Dodital lake are there in the Puranas, where it has been described as one of the holy lakes. It is the source of about 80 rivulets which merge to form the Assi Ganga, due to which the valley is also called Assi Ganga valley (Assi means 80 in the local language ). The Assi Ganga meets the Bhagirathi at Gangori..
