"Shiva's Lake" as the name translates to the trek to Kedar Tal is one of the easier to do and smaller treks in the Gangotri National Park which otherwise is known for the more 'famous and difficult' Auden's Col and Kalindi Khal trek.
The trek to Kedar Tal starts at Gangotri - one of the four holy shrines of the Hindus, not to mention the winding and colorful drive up to Uttarkashi and then to Gangotri which starts to give you a rich experience of the hills, its people, terrain and beauty.
From Gangotri, the trek takes you through the gorge of the Kedar Ganga passing by the forest which slowly converts to bushes, then to grasses and then finally found only in sparse between rocks as you gain altitude very fast, since Gangotri itself is over 3000 meters from where you start your trek.The first campsite of Bhojkharak is already over tree line. Another 2 days of trek brings you to the ultimate setting of a serene lake surrounded by whote snow cladded peaks giving you great views of Thalay Sagar and Bhrigupanth.
