Trekking in Chopta

Uttarakhand Himalayas

Planning for a perfect trek full of adventure, beauty, fun, joy and so on? Then, Uttarakhand is the bonzer choice. Mountain lovers have plenty to enjoy here. The snow-capped splendor mountains of Chopta welcome hikers for a great trekking opportunity. Besides this, it offers an incredible variety of landscapes in a small area and pleasant climate.

Trek to Tungnath Chopta mesmerized you with its beauty as it runs parallel to the sky-scrapng Himalayan Treks. Chandrashilla Summit is a rock face above the temple of Tungnath, the highest of all the temples in the Himalayas. It is a popular trek that can be undertaken round the year, except during the heavy snowing month of December and January. Moving on the trek, the first attraction is Deoria Tal high altitude lake. It would not be frozen, even when the surrounding places seem to be bathed in white. A perfect camping site, the lake is then left for another tourist magnet, the Valley of Chopta. It seems to be nothing more than a snow-covered rocky terrain that was once lush green in another season. Next on the list is the temple of the deity of destruction- Lord Shiva, on Chopta to Chandrashila Snow Trek. Considered to be the highest temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, Tunganath Temple automatically gets its devotees paying a visit to it in reverence. And then, last but not the least, Chopta Chandrashila Summit will make for the complete adventure of the snowy journey.
