Detailed Overview

In winter, this part of the world puts on a different look. A look which will make you stand awestruck before taking the next step through the snow!  Chopta, Deoriatal, Tungnath & Chandrashila Winter Trek is a one-of-a-kind experience. The 5000-year-old Tungnath temple located at a height of 3,680 m (12,073 ft)- just below the peak of Chandrashila- is the highest Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is one of the Panch-Kedars and is believed to be built by Arjuna himself. 

Chandrashila is famous for its breathtaking 360-degree view of the Himalayan ranges. Deoriatal and Chopta are the places which are blessed with some unmatchable beauty. Starting from Chopta you will summit Chandrashila followed by a visit and camping at the banks of Deorital Lake during the second day of the trek.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Dehradun - Chopta (1350 m | Drive 200 km - 5-6 hrs)

We drive through the towns of Devprayag, Rudraprayag and Ukhimath to reach Chopta. This is a reserved forest and the nip in the air is easily felt due to the omnipresent oak trees. We will pitch tents in Chopta and spent the night beside a bonfire with hot dinner.

Day-2: Chopta - Tungnath & Chandrashila (3925 m) & return to Chopta | 7 km Trek - 5-6 hrs

We start early today. Form the picturesque environs of Chopta, we take the path through the arch leading up to the temple. Tungnath is a short 3 km trek from Chopta. The temple will be visible during the last few hundred metres. After spending some time at the temple, we will continue trekking to the peak. Soak in the splendid 360-degree views of the Himalayas from up there.

After summiting Chandrashila we will head back to Chopta. 

Day-3: Chopta - Ukhimath - Dehradun

Today after breakfast we visit the famous Shiv temple at Ukhimath before embarking on the road journey back to Dehradun.
