The sacred lake of Dudh kunda lies at the base
of Mt.Nambur, the mountain regarded by the locals
as being the home of the protective deity of Solu. In August
there is an influx of devotees who
come to perform cleansing ritual at the lake. At other time
you are unlikely to meet anyone on
this rarely traveled trail.
The main trail to Dudh kunda starts
at Ringmo on the route between Junbesi and Tragsindho La. an
alternative route to the lake starts at Thupten Chholing and
follows a spectacular, isolated
ridge through dense forest and then opens, and sometimes rocky,
yak grazing pastures to join the
main trail at Sarsarbeni. This latter trail is quite remote
and a local guide may be needed if
your staff is unfamiliar with the route.
From Ringmo, the trek
to Dudh kunda takes a minimum of five days but at least one extra
exploring around the lake should be allowed for. While at the
lake, be sure to walk right around
its shore and look for the spring, high up on the Northeastern
side which is considered to be the
source of the holy water.
There are several additional option for extending treks above
Dudh Kunda but the remote nature of the country makes a locally
experienced guide essential.
