CAMPING  & TREKKING  in CHOPTA - Chopta to Tungnath, Chandrashilla Top trek  and back to Chopta

Chopta is the most popular destination among nature lovers, because its high biodiversity and beautiful landscape views. It is the region which is surrounded by captivating Deoriatal Lake, where trekking can be the greatest fun while camping at Garhwal Himalayas. Camping here the first night under a star dusted sky makes the mellowest of memories on a trek. Next up on the line of visual ecstasies are the extensive meadows that turn to snow fields along the way to Chopta. These stellar features of Garhwal Himalayas promise to get more elucidated from the zenith of Chandrashila, so the motivation is never lost and one goes on until the end of the summit stretch at the Tunganath temple.

The Chopta Tungnath trek is one of the easier treks in the Himalayan region.  The peaks of  Panchchuli, Nanda Devi, Nilkanth and Kedarnath are all clear during the course of the trek and make for a majestic sight. This trek encompasses a large area starting from Haridwar and ending at Chandrashila with a number of other interesting areas falling on the way. It is a perfect opportunity for first-timers who are looking to get a hang of the general basics of trekking in the Himalayan region and is recommended highly by us for the same. The major attractions of this trek are the Tungnath Temple and the Chandrashila peak which provides a breathtaking 360-degree view of the valleys below.

The region of Chopta is being stretched from 2000 meter elevation to 4000 meter  and a link road passes through the dense forest region to connect through the valleys of Mandakini and Alaknanda making an easy access to the upper Himalaya regions. . It’s a 12 km trek and by road (car) it brings 18 kms drive with an addition of  two and a half kms of trek from Chopta.  The mighty Chaukh

Deoriatal – Situated at a  height of 7, 800 feet, the lake is gripped with forests all around.   At a short distance ahead, the Chaukhamba massif glistens and the reflection of it is caught in the crystal-like waters of the lake.  The effect is striking.  According to the mythological  story,  the five Pandava brothers of  the Mahabharata, once thirsty,  had come to the waters of Deoriatal and faced a test of wisdom here
