So we went to this lake called Dhankar lake which is in Dhankar village itself. We had to trek up hill for about two kms and it was steep and tiring as well due to high altitude but we didn't give up. People who were coming back told us to not go there because the lake is half dried or its not worth it.
I have no clue what did they see because this is what we saw. The majestic view of Dhankar lake. So clean, so beautiful. We were so overwhelmed when we reached there and didn't listen to the people or didn't give up. So we found our spots and everyone lied down besides the lake and had our own precious time to connect with the nature. It was magical moment when the sunshine was falling on the lake. ❤️ #himachalpradesh#himalayas#dhankarvillage#dhankarlake#spitivalley#magicalviews#natgeotravel
A new personal achievement to walk 3 kms (3500 steps) in the heat & scarce oxygen to this view. It was nice to meet a father son duo which had come down from a village in the hills to graze their cattle. #dhankarlake#lahaulspiti#spiti
TREKKING To DHANKAR LAKE from DHANKAR Monastery in Spiti valley. The hike to Dhankar Lake begins from a hidden path above the Dhankar Monastery and throughout the journey the monastery plays hide and seek with you as you follow the serpentine path caressing the mountainsides. Dhankar Lake Trek in Spiti is only about an hour or two long yet it is very treacherous as you climb more than 1000 feet in less than 2 hours on foot. As we were leaving the Dhankar Village behind I found this prayer wheel installed in a spring so. What a wonderful idea a prayer wheel that constantly rotates with help of water blessing the water as well as those who use it. #himalayas#spitivalley#dhankarlake#trekking#dhankarmonastery#mountains 🗻 #beautifulpeak
