Dokriani Glacier

Dokriani Bamak

Dokriani Glacier is a 5 km long, medium-sized glacier in Uttarkashi District. It is formed by two cirques, originating at the northern slope of Draupadi-Ka-Danda and Jaonli Peak, at 5600 m and 6000 m respectively. It flows in the north-west direction and terminates at an elevation of 3800 m. The stream originating from the glacier is called Dingad, which later merges into the Bhagirathi River near Bukki village.

Well-developed meadows and proglacial lakes situated near the glacier offers good camping sites. The glacier is easily approachable from Uttarkashi, which is around 56 km away.
