Kedarnath-Vasuki Tal Trek
The trek to Kedarnath (3584 m) starts from the road head at Gaurikund. At Gaurikund, there is a hot water sulphur spring where one can have a bath. Gaurikund to Rambara, the trek winds along the river Mandakini initially a little steep then gradually climbing through the forest across beautiful waterfalls enroute. On seeing the water falls that milky waters are gushing down from the heavens. From here the trek to Rambara village is gradual. Rambara to Garur Chatti is a climb for 5 kms and then one arrives to Kedarnath. Kedarnath to Vasukital for the first phase is a continuous ascent along a goat trek on grassy slope on the West Kedarnath. The view of Chaukhambha peaks and Mandakini valley is wonderful from here. The trek from Vasuki top is down hill for one km to the Vasuki Tal.
Vasuki Tal is about 1 km in radius with glittering clear waters by snow-capped peaks. From here to Paian Tal, north west of Vasuki Tal is about 1 km on rocky surface. The lake is more beautiful and at the bottom of the lake, one can see rectangular stack of rocks, as if placed there intentionally. From Kedarnath to Vasuki Tal services of a guide are most essential. The best season to visit this lake is from May to September.
