Dodital Lake is 37km from Uttarkashi out of which 22km is on foot from Sangamchatti. This is a very popular and beautiful trek. The stay in FRH and an eco lodge overlooking the lake is very pleasant. They have been renovated in 1997 after being damaged in the 1992 earthquake. The FRH is surrounded by forests of rai, murind & texus bacatta-a rare species found in plenty here. The lake has a circumference of 750m approx and is famous for the temple of Lord Ganesh. It is believed to be his birth place. Rainbow trout was introduced in the lake by the British which is still found in plenty. Assi Ganga emanated from the lake and has a good population of the trout. Trek to Darba top 6km and Gidara top 8km is an added attraction.
