Chopta is a tiny hill station and a part of Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary, which houses green meadows and dense forest. Situated at a height of 2680 meters above the sea level, the place is considered one of the best locations for camping in the state of Uttarakhand. Chopta is also the starting point of treks to Tungnath, which is the world’s highest Shiva temple and Chandrashila peak.

Chopta is known for its serene beauty of its evergreen meadows and majestic views of valleys and snowcapped peaks. The place is girded by dense forest of pine, deodar and rhododendron and is famous for musk deer and rare species of birds such as Monal.

CHOPTA CAMPING TREKKING TUNGNATH TEMPLE

TUNGNATH TEMPLE - ONE OF THE ANCIENT TEMPLE OF LORD SHIVA

Tunganath is one of the five Panch Kedar temples in the Tunganath mountain range in Rudraprayag district of Uttrakhand. A scenic trek of a mere 3 and a half kms from Chopta will get you here. The beauty of the trek is that you are constantly gliding through the clouds and instead of walking on a certain side of the mountain, you are walking almost on the ridge at the very top, surrounded by endless meadows. 

The best time to visit Chopta  is in summers (April – June) and winters (Oct – Dec). Winter treks are also conducted in Chopta and the best months to trek are between Jan and March.
