Satopanth Tal -The Glacial lake which is around 25kms from Badrinath, could be reached after a arduous trek crossing Lakshmivan and Chakratirtha. Natural Caves along the path are used as the night shelter. Around Badrinath every place is steeped in legends so are Lakshmiban and Chakratirtha. It is said that goddess Lakshmi ( goddess of wealth)and her husband Narayan meditated in Lakshmivan and Chakratirtha respectively and while meditating Narayan kept his famous Sudarshan Chakra on the valley which depressed by the weight of that Chakra to form a beautiful round shaped meadow surrounded by lofty mountains..... Traversing on to satopanth glacier and hours of hard trekking on the treacherous moraine under the last ridge until reach the lake.The first thing that strikes is the strange ethereal ambience of the lake. Calm and Soothing! probably because an achievement of hard labour or may be the legends, or endurance !. The perfectly triangle shaped lake at the base of the snow crested Chaukhamba I peak, surrounded by lofty mountains. The crystal clear water of triangular lake mirrors the snow crested Chaukhamba I peak. It is said there lies a path traversed by the pandava brothers on their last journey to the heaven.
