About KhatlingSahasratal Trek

Two of the lakes, Masar Tal and Sahasra Tal, among all are excellent in beauty and solace. Khatling is the glacier, from which the river Bhilangana rises. The spot, you will have to reach in the first half of the trek, is the valley of this Bhilangana. All the lakes including the two above and Vasuki Tal are preserved by nature in this valley. In the distant horizontal view from the valley, you will find several peaks, making competition with each other for their height. SpheticPristwar, BarteKauter and Meru are the renowned among all, covered with snow cap on their heads.
Basically the trek starts from Kush Kalyani. Journey to Kyarki Khal from there, through the lush meadows is going to give you a bulletin of what nature is having in her menu for you. From there reach Parital and visit the first lake in the trip. You will have to reach the Khatling Glacier, after covering all the lakes, putting Kalyani beside.

The journey through the meadows, finally into the glacier is in one-word outstanding. Once you reach there, you will feel that it is injustice to use the word, outstanding. Religious merit of the place is also going to be added in your notebook. Unless you note them, the understanding and the local people's stories will remain incomplete for you. However, keeping the religious myths apart, the beauty of the nature god is spectacular. After you reach the destination, you will find the beauty to be even more excavating your imaginations. So prepare yourself for that. Considering the myths, the river Bhilangana has been a divine soul, who tried to tempt Shiva. However, she didn't succeed and she had been cursed to flow in a liquid form. The river is named after her, for that reason. Even the valley is also named after her. Beyond this Puranic myth, you will also come across some of the local myths. The local people, who are really friendly, will narrate you the stories in their own way. You will love interacting with them and will feel awesome to find their belief in those myths.

Where is the KhatlingSahasratal Trek?
Perspicuous and sparkling like a glitter, Sahasratal is a lake at an elevation of 15000 feet, towards the Khatling glacier western fringes. Sacred to some and escapade for other, Sahasratal can be reached throughout the years, except monsoon, as this is when the roads are slippery, and there are more chances of the landslide. The lake holds a strong religious significance, thus, here one can see the presence of many pilgrims.
A strenuous 30 km uphill and downhill trek from Sahasratal will take tourists to Khatling Glacier. This lateral glacier is located in Tehri district, amid the snow drenched peaks- Jogin Group of Peaks (6466 m), SpheticPristwar (6905 m), BarteKauter (6579 m), KirtiStambh (6902 m) and Meru. Due to its location, it has been a primary source of water for Bhilangana River. Moraines flank edges of the glacier, but actually they look like walls of gravel mud.
