Images were taken ten years ago during our trek to Dodital Darwa pass trek in Uttarakhand when digital technology has just begun to come in photography. Although the pictures are quite ordinary, but even  today it seems to be something special.

The things that even come to my memory are the evening prayer on the river Ganga, the clouds playing in the sky after the rain, the simple life of the villagers , old shepherd’s life on the high mountain and the heavy rain at midnight on the Darwa top and later incessant snowfall. Today it seems like a dream.

Dodital is a lake holding fresh water and offering tranquil environs. The lake is situated amidst dense deodar forests in Uttarkashi district of Uttrakhand. The lake originates from natural springs of the river Asi Ganga. A Temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha is situated at one corner of the lake.

For  Darwa Pass, one has to ascend the summit and it is a delightful as one makes way through green meadows and laced with rhododendron trees. At the last leg it is  a steep and long trail. The coup to the top is a rewarding with stunning sights of Gangotri Gomukh regions.. Witness the majestic Himalayas. The trek ends at Hanumanchati, a locality on way to Jamunotri.
