    Destination

    Chopta is a small village in Uttarakhand that serves as the base for treks to Tungnath and Chandrashila. The evergreen forests and sprawling meadows of the village have attracted rare Himalayan birds like the multi-coloured monal. In the months of winter, the landscape is painted with a pristine white shade with snow, offering one of the best snow treks in Uttarakhand. The Chopta Tungnath trek gives you the chance to explore these varied forests with fields of rhododendron and gushing river streams.
