  • We visited this lake in the mid October time when most of the water is dried up. We couldn't get the blue colour water scenario, however due to the temperature the lake got frozen and didn't melt even at 11AM when the sun rays were falling directly on the lake. It was a mesmerizing scenery. Very pleasant lake.
  • From Dhankar village to Dhankar lake it's just 2 to 3 km trek. But due to high altitude of 4270 meter from sea level it's super exhausting. You need to keep Camphor with you so that you do not get high altitude sickness. The exhausting journey is worth as when you reach dhankar lake it's picture perfect location, peaceful blue super clean water !
