Chopta Chandrashila Trek

Get an early start to the day, if you wish to experience a stunning sunrise from Tungnath. The path between Chopta and Tungnath runs on a well-defined concrete-bound trail and is about 3 km. Stop to admire the temple, the highest of its in the world dedicated to Lord Shiva, before making your way to Chandrashila peak. The peak is 1.5 km above the temple complex. During winter, this trail this completely buried in snow and the climb from Tungnath to Chandrashila is a steep, 600-ft ascent. But the views from the peak are incomparable! You will be able to sight some of the most notable mountains Uttarakhand, including Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nandaghunti, Kamet, Dunagiri, Chaukhamba, Kedar dome, Thalaysagar, Gangotri ranges, Jahanukut and more.
