  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a 5-day trek to Chopta and spend a few days in the company of blossoming forests and rising mountains. You'll trek to the Tungnath Temple, the highest temple of Lord Shiva in the world. You'll climb the Chandrashila peak, a 13,123 feet tall summit that offers panoramic views. You'll also trek to the Deoriatal Lake, a high-altitude lake hidden in the mountain folds. All throughout the trip, you'll admire stunning views of hills in the Chopta valley with snow-capped peaks on the horizon.

    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.

    Destination highlights

    • Visit the 1,000-year old Tungnath Temple, the highest temple of Lord Shiva in the world.
    • Climb up the Chandrashila peak to get spectacular views.
    • Visit the Deoriatal Lake and get relaxing, mountain views.
    • Spend a few days in the scenic forests of Uttarakhand.
