Photographer's Note

This shot was taken from the hillock you approach the lake from, coming from Gangotri. The lake looks emerald green from this side, but looks a stunning blue when the sun is behind you(as you will see in the pics to follow). Unfortunately i was too tired to climb on th other side to get a blue lake from a vantage point.

The lake was half dry at this time of the year(August). Should be a stunning sight early in the summer when it is full. Unfortunatley with the rocky terrain around, there is no good camp sight.

The sunlight was amazing that day. Infact too bright. I am not too good with software. Gimp is too painful for the novice. I hope someone adjusts the saturation level, and brightness in a workshop.

A very stunning lake & picturesque lake, with a good tough trek(really rewarding at the end).
