We invite you to take part in a pilgrimage to one of the most mysterious places in the Himalayas. A place that is not even known by experienced pilgrims across India: the mystical path that the five Pandavas and their consort Draupadi travelled from the earthly plane to reach the final abode of Sri Krishna.
This path that the Pandavas travelled was not just a pilgrimage for them. They were going to die and this was their tapasya, their last spiritual journey. It was a difficult yet blessed journey.
According to the Mahabharata, Book 17, all the Pandavas died on this journey, one after the other, with Draupadi being the first to leave her body. Only Yudhishthira, together with his dog, who according to legend was the embodiment of Dharma Raja himself, reached the final destination of the journey – the sacred lake, Satopant Tal. This lake is where the path to the higher planets opens. Yudhishthira, having passed all the tests, was taken to Heaven with his physical body.
The legend continues, describing how the Satopanth (translated as ‘seven steps of truth’) is the lake in which the gods descend to take a bath. It has a triangular shape, approximately 1km long on each side.
