The crystal-clear Chorabari Tal offers magnificent views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks. Also known as the Gandhi Sarovar or Gandhi Tal, the lake lies about 3 km from the Kedarnath temple. An easy trek from the temple leads you to the lake, which was originally known as Kanti Sarovar. In 1948, some of the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi were immersed in the lake after which it was renamed Gandhi Sarovar. Legend has it that it was at Chorabari Lake that Lord Shiva imparted the knowledge of yoga to the Saptrishis. Perched at an altitude of 3,900 m above sea level, the lake originates from the Chorabari Bamak Glacier. You can also visit the nearby Bhairava Temple. The mesmeric Madhu Ganga Waterfalls falling on the way makes for a serene stopover.
