Taknaur Valley - Kyarkoti Lake

To Be Announced

  To Be Announced

Kyarkoti lake can possibly called as the watering hole of the Gods. You might think that this is an utter hyperbole. In that case, we definitely want you to join us on this trek.

Located in the Garhwal ranges of the mighty Himalayas, the trek is refreshing and inspiring to say the least. To be precise, it is located in the Taknaur valley which is (What we feel) the literal translation of the word ‘Peace’.

One of the most scenic treks, the stunning views of snow covered peaks leave you agape with awe!

The long spread meadows, the deep emerald green valleys, the sight of daylight breaking through the clouds is nothing but ethereal.

The trek is nothing less than a life changing experience. You can literally smell the purity of this place in the surroundings!

Quite an easy trek compared to trekking in the Himalayas, we call it the ‘Trekking into Paradise’.
