On this trek, you'll travel to the dramatically pleasant meadows of Chopta, get views of snow-capped mountains in the icy waters of Deoriatal, trek to Tungnath, which is one of the highest Shiva temples in the world, and climb to Chandrashila, which is even higher than the Tungnath temple. All this, but on an easy trek that gives beginners a chance to experience mountain life at its best.
