Mantalai Lake

 

 

Overview

     The trek starts from Barsheni (roadhead which is 2.5 hours from Bhuntar) and goes to KheerGanga via Rudra Nag, which has a waterfall of such intensity that one shudders to imagine what would happen to anyone falling in it, through thick pine forests. There are many myths about “Kheer Ganga”, a holy site for both the Hindus and Sikhs, which the local guide will tell you about. The water in the “hot springs” at Kheer Ganga are milky white. The route continues along the Parbati River, crossing TundaBhuj, where one would find several "gujjars" with their cows/buffaloes. The route is through alpine meadows and undulating landscape. The one comes across an interesting spot called "Thakur Kuan" which one has to cross in a trolley, an experience in itself. After, Thakur Kuan then next big and unmistakable landmark is "Pandav Bridge" which is essentially two huge boulders wedged across the river. According to legend this bridge was created by the Pandava brothers.

     From PanduPul one walks through the high altitude meadows of OdiThach to reach Mantalai, a holy place, that is well marked by the presence of a Shiva temple.Mantalailake is often believed to be the source of the Parvati River. We will spend a day exploring the area around the lake. The more adventurous can venture into the glaciers beyond the lake. We then retraceour steps back to Manikaran through the same camps we crossed while making our way up.
