Kedar Tal is one of the most enchanting glacial lakes with the majestic Thalayasagar looming up behind it. Thalayasagar, a quartz mountain, is also known as Sphatik (quartz) and is truly a delight to see at sunset! Overnight stay in tents.

The trek from Gomukh to Tapovan is ascent steep, and as we climb, the view of the surrounding peaks becomes clearer. The appear to be just a stone's throw away.

Herds of Bharal (blue mountain goats) is a common sight from here on mountain ridges. On the far side of the glacier the Bhagirathi I, II, III (6454mt), provide an equally impressive backdrop.
