Haridwar is well connected by means of air road and rail with the nearest airport being Dehradhun aiport (30kms) away. Train travel is highly recommended as it is easily accesssible from all major cities.
An easy and enchanting trek in the Garwahl region of the Himalayas, the trail takes us to the picturesque Deoriatal lake and to the mini-Switzerland of India - Chopta. This is a moderate intensity, short-duration trek, and is perfect for trekking newbies looking for their first taste of the outdoors.
This trek takes us to the beautiful waters of the Deoriatal lake, the grassy meadows of Chopta, and to the mighty Chandrashila peak, standing tall at 13000 feet. The crystal waters of the Deorital reflect the massive Chaukhamba peak, and with its undulating green meadows, and views of snow-capped mountains in the distance, it's no wonder that Chopta is referred to as the mini-Switzerland of India.
