Overview


The term ‘Satopanth’ is derived from two words – ‘Sato’ meaning heaven, and ‘Panth’ meaning path or way. Satopanth is one of the most popular peak of Uttarakhand. This is the second higesht peak in Gangotri group surrounded by the views of Thalay Sagar , Shivling , BhagirathiIII . The climbing route includes a complex glacier approach, high angled snow slopes and knife edge ridge, before the final section to the summit. Satopanth, standing majestically at 7075 m is one of the most dominating massifs of the western Garhwal. The mountain, a seven thousander, reigns supreme amongst a sea of six thousanders and is distinct by its mammoth shape, sharp, and shapely ridge lines. Viewed from the top, the mountain resembles a square emerald set in a natural show case. To many, its horizontal summit ridge resembles a near perfect circus trapezium.
