    Destination

    Chopta, often called as the 'Switzerland of India', is perched atop gorgeous Himalayan mountains at an altitude of over 7,700 feet. Placed close to popular, nature-rich destinations like Deoriatal and Chandrashila, the village attracts thousands of trekkers every year. While the rolling green mountains spring with colourful, alpine flowers and bushes in the summer, the landscape is painted with pristine white snow in the months of winter.
