Kanasar Lake

Kanasar Lake

Price Rs.10,700/-

Kanasar Lake appeared to be shaped like an eye and certainly synonymours with name.Virtually the entire lake had a thin sheet of ice on its surface round the year. Towards the middle of the lake we there are two islands and soon learned that these islands were responsible for the name Kanasar. Apparently early visitors to the lake thought the islands resembled a mark on the eye of a blind person or kana hence, the name Kanasar. Based on information, the lake is very deep and is visited annually by villagers primarily from Himachal, who immerse a deity in the lake using a rope. It took us a full hour to walk the length of the lake and by the time we were done it was late afternoon and clouds had descended around the lake creating a heavenly sight.Walking through the Rhododendron bushes, Birch and Pine forest is breathtaking. Another twin lake worth visiting enroute is Baraadsar.View of , Ranglana (5554mt) Swargarohini 6,252 mt Massif, Kalanag, kedarkanta, from here is worthwhile. The reflections of surrounding mountains mirrored in the sheer enxpanse of lake is really a feast to eyes.

We could see the Rupin river on its meandering course, winding on the valley floor far below, flowing to the west as we continued to head north. We came across small meadows and streams, which were great spots to take a break by. The continuous rain had washed the area into a bright green landscape. This was the longest stage on our trek, and it was with great relief that, late into the evening with the setting sun as a backdrop, we saw our tents in the distance

Early morning views from Masundha Dhar were special. Towards the east, the first rays started to hit the peaks. The refracted beams did something special to the Swargarohini (6,247m) – turning the air around the summit a bright orange and imbuing it with a halo. This is a mountain massif with four separate peaks. It is a dramatic mountain: its north face drops 2,000m in less than 2km and its south face is only marginally less steep – making it a challenging climb. Thanks to our excellent location, we were able to see all the four peaks of At 3,500m, we were above the tree line and vegetation had thinned out considerably. The hard work on day two meant that we had achieved most of the height gain required, and we now moved on flat sections along the Rupin-Supin ridge.

Day four was one of the highlights of the trek. We walked along grassy slopes through the day, with the recurring feeling that we were in paradise. As we moved closer to the Baraadsar Ridge, we noticed there had been a liberal spray of snow: the next day’s climb seemed daunting. By early afternoon, we reached the base of the Baraadsar Ridge from where the final climb to the lake starts. We were at Camp Dev Bhasa (3,640m), which we nicknamed ‘the saddle’ due to its U-shaped appearance.

In the afternoon, we found ourselves in the middle of a massive hailstorm. By late evening it had abated and it seemed that peace would prevail on ‘the saddle’. We were quite wrong. Around 9pm, just as we had settled into our tents, looking forward for some much needed rest, gale winds started, threatening to blow our tents and us down into the valley below. Further reinforcements in the form of heavy stones were required to keep our tents and blood pressure down.
