Lake Manasarovar lies at 4,556 m (14947.5 ft) above mean sea level and is one of the highest fresh-water lakes in the world. It is relatively round in shape with a circumference of 88 kms Its depth is 90 m (300 ft) and its surface area is 320 square kms. The lake freezes in winter and melts only in the spring. Manasarovar is the source of the Sutlej River which is the easternmost large tributary of the Indus. Nearby are the sources of the Brahmaputra River, the Indus River, and the Karnali River (Ghaghara) which is an important tributary of the Ganges River, so this region is the hydrographic nexus of the Himalaya.

In the Morning we start our trek from Dira-Puk to Zuthulpuk (4700m). We trek through Drolma La Pass which is at an altitude of 18,600 ft, the highest point in the course of our journey. This is the most challenging day for pilgrimage with the total distance of 22 kms and 9 hrs. trek. Just below the Drolma La is the Gauri Kund. Gauri Kund is often known to be frozen. The story goes that once a woman with a baby tied to her back came to the pond. As she bent over, the child fell into the lake and drowned. The gods, in their effort to avoid such occurrences ev er again, froze the lake. The lake appears like a liquid jade green marble tabletop. We stay overnight at Zuthulpuk Guest house.
