Somesh Panwar, a resident of Pandukeshwar, has returned after traveling on a bicycle on the very inaccessible pedestrian path of Satopanth. He completed the 50 km journey from Badrinath to Satopanth in five days. He had made this journey with the aim of giving the message of clean Himalayas and wishing the world to be free from Corona.
For the first time, a person has reached Satopanth by bicycle. After completing this journey of about 50 km in five days, Somesh Panwar returned to Badrinath on Thursday. Somesh, who has done many trips by bicycle, says that cycling on the mountain while crossing dangerous paths, mountain slopes, big boulders is dangerous, but it is also adventurous and thrilling.
Somesh is known to undertake risky journeys by bicycle. Last year, he had cycled 4035 km from Mana village to Kanyakumari. Along with this, he has also traveled to Panch Badri by bicycle. The natural lake at Satopanth, 25 km from Badrinath, as well as the beauty of the Himalayas attracts devotees and tourists.
On this trek, which is one of the most difficult treks, now slowly local trekkers and people have started reaching here. The journey of Satopanth Tal, situated at an altitude of 4600 meters above sea level, passes through Mana. This trek is taken via Basudhara.
The triangular-shaped Satopanth Lake is not only full of natural beauty but also has religious significance. It is believed that Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh did penance in all three corners of this lake. Tridev takes bath here on Ekadashi day. A large number of devotees reach here on this day.
