  • Trip introduction

    For amateur trekkers who want to get a taste of the Himalayas, there is no better start than this. On this trek, you'll trek through the extremely pleasant meadows of Chopta, get views of snow-capped mountains in the icy waters of Deoriatal, visitTungnath, which is one of the highest Shiva temples in the world, and climb to Chandrashila, which is even higher than this temple. All this, but on an easy trek that gives beginners a chance to experience mountain life at its best.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 4 pax is required to make a booking.

    Destination

    Your route takes you through the evergreen Chopta, along the banks of crystal mountain lakes, and into the misty heights of Tungnath and Chandrashila. You'll be walking through fields of rhodendron, camping alongside streams, eating under the stars, and taking in the best that the Himalayas can offer.

    Destination highlights

    • Visit 1000-year old Tungnath, the highest Shiva temple in the world
    • See the reflection of mountains in icy lakes
    • Get a splendid panoramic view from the Chandrashila peak
