Jalori Pass to Serolsar Lake
The path to the lake starts just behind the temple at Jalori Pass. There are a few ascents and descends on the way to Serolsar, though the path is mostly straight. I even saw a few old people slowly walking down the path.
It took me around 1.5 hours of moderate walk to reach the lake, though I also climbed two small side hills on the way to see the view of the valley from above. There are a couple of campsites on the way if you would like to stay at the pass longer.
Serolsar lake is surrounded by a dense forest. It is an easy and enjoyable 5 km hike.
On the way to the lake, you will see a few houses literally under the rock. I’ve noticed even one of them giving a basic room for rent.
The lake is so clean that you can see through it. I’ve met a shepherd there with a flock of sheep. He told that whichever season you visit the lake, you will not find fallen leaves on the lake itself. The birds keep it clean throughout the year
Though there were plenty of fallen leaves on the path, I didn’t see any in the lake. But, hey, I’ve been just an hour there. If you stay longer, let me know!
Mata Budhi Nagin Temple: The other half, which received sunshine, hosted a small temple.
Close to the lake, you will see a few tents where you can buy basic snacks and light meals. They come at the same price as food at Jalori pass
