An attractive spot amidst dense forests, Nachiketa Taal is
situated between Panchangaon and Fold Gaon.
Nachiketa Taal is perennialy filled with water. A drive through the terraced fields takes one to Chaurangi-Khal, a place 29 kms. from Uttarkashi and from there a 3 kms.trek, through lush green forests, takes one to Nachiketa Taal, a tranquil spot. There is greenery all around Nachiketa Taal and a small temple at the bank of the lake gives a serene look to the already beautiful surroundings.
Nachiketa, the devout son of saint Uddalak, is said to have created this lake and hence, the name. There is no accommodation facility and visitors have either to come back to Uttarkashi or stay at the PWD Inspection House at Chaurangi-Khal.
