Baraadsar Lake Trek- The Lake of Abundance

The Bharadsar Lake Trek or Baraadsar Lake Trek  is one of the very less explored treks in The Himalayas. It is located between the Rupin and Supin Valley on the north eastern part of Uttarakhand close from the Himachal border, heading east and then south. It is a wonderful trek that will take you through the Briti valley where you will get to see open air school, beautiful houses and unique Kinnauri architecture. You will also see a number of camping sites which are nestled around the huge pine forests especially the Badang meadow. The Bharadsar meadow is at a height of 4400mt. Before reaching at the Bharadsar meadow you will have to pass through dense forests and steep ridges.

At the Baradsaar Lake you will get to see the spectacular view of great mountain peaks like the Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Kalanag towards the East and the peaks around Kinnaur and Supin Valley towards the West. At some places the trek might get exhausting and long at some places, so need a lot of fitness. The final will take you to a high ridge at 4400m overlooking the lake, with the view from the ridge being really stunning. Gradually you will find yourself standing before a cauldron shaped snow field. In the middle of this cauldron lies the Baradsaar Lake. The lake stays frozen for most of the year.

Best Season for Baradsaar Lake Trek

The best time to travel to the Baradsaar Lake is during the month of June and September. These are the months when the weather is very much favorable and not freezing. The snow cover is quiet moderate and doesn’t make the trek hard to traverse on to.

Start your journey to Badang which is a moderate yet stiff climb. An hour’s trail it will take you towards a pine/deodar forest where the trail eases out. A trail loaded with stones will get you through the forest before the last two km to Badang which again is a bit of a climb.

Day 4: Badang to Daldhar (11,280ft)

A bit strenuous and long would be the right words to describe this trail from Badang to Daldhar. It is 3 hours of trekking through the forest with a couple of stiff climbs. You reach at the Vijay Top when the forest opens into a meadow. Further you reach at the Masundha Dhar from where the trail continues for another 4 to 5 hours.

Day 5-Dhal Dhar to Dev Bhasa (11,900ft)
Distance-2 hours
 The trek to Dev Bhasa is a brisk trek of 2 hour. It is an initial climb of 500ft followed by a gentle descent that brings you to the campsite. The water resource is about 2km away from the campsite of Dev Bhasa. A further 3km climb from Dev Bhasa will make the journey to Bhardsar meadow less tedious.

Day 6: Dev Bhasa to Bharadsar Meadow (13,120ft)
The trek to Bharadsar from Dev Bhasa is one of the most tedious, exhausting and longest amongst all the other days. There are two routes to Bharadsar, the longer one which goes left round about the mountain and then comes right and the shorter one is a steep ascent crossing a pass and moving down straight to the Bharadsar campsite. It looks partly frozen and dark in colour due to the shadow of the Rocky Mountains surrounding it. This place has only the melted snow as a source of water, make sure you carry enough water for both cooking and melting snow.

Day 7: Trek from Bharadsar Meadow to Baraadsar Lake back to Dev Bhasa
The lake is a couple of hours away from the Baradsar meadow. It is a trek over rocks and moraines and thus you need to step carefully. From the Bharadsar lake get back to the campsite, take the straight path to the ridge top, if there is snow then the climb to the ridge will get easier.
