I knew I was going to explore a serene piece of land adorned with a hidden lake.
Situated at an altitude of 3100 metres above the mean sea level, in the beautiful state of Himachal Pradesh in India, this lake is considered to possess some medicinal properties (as believed by the locals). My brain was well equipped with the geographic information about the tarn, however, there were many other mythical tales associated with this holy lake which I was completely unaware of initially.
The infamous Serolsar lake is surrounded by a dense forest cover and is considered an arduous trek in the winters due to the hostile climatic conditions and unapologetic snowfall. On the contrary, during the summer time, the trekking trail becomes hiker friendly and offers some spectacular and breathtaking views.
This trekking path which starts from Jalori Pass, is around 5 kms and can be covered in a single day however, we (a group of 7 friends) decided to camp in the mid way under the stars. So we started the hike pretty late in the afternoon. The hiking path goes through dense forests covered with tall conifers. The trail would engulf you in a complete silence and would disconnect you from the technological world.
