• Trip introduction

    This trek is a short, easy trek that takes you up to a spectacular 13550 feet. It runs along the high Himalayas, offering you great views all the way. The trek allows you to visit Tungnath, which is said to be the highest Shiva temple in the world.

    The challenge of climbing to Chandrashila is an exciting one for any adventurer, and the 360-degree panorama of the mighty Himalayas is ample reward.


    Although it takes you fairly high up into the mountains, this trek is considered to be a good trek for beginners looking for the full Himalayan experience. Chopta being a hill station, this part of the trail winds through splendid meadows filled with flowers. In spring, you'll be surrounded by the gorgeous pinks and reds of the rhododendron forest in full bloom.
