Chopta Tungnath Chandrashila Trek

Chopta Tungnath Chandrashila Trek is a window into Himalaya’s spring shading energy. A very much cherished trek for mountain goers of assorted types, this trek prospers with blooms, particularly rhododendrons red and pink, in mid-year while winters are a dim shade with enough degrees to have a great time in spilling day off. The entire visit covers a swoop to the Chandrashila Peak, passing by the charming Deoriatal lakeside, and opens up an exhibition of staggering snow tops as far as possible.

The features of the trek run from stunning summit perspectives to the warmth of the woods greens, provoking up interests in a wide range of mountain darlings. You could be a nature treasurer, feathered creature watching novice, or a shutterbug with a fantasy about catching the show in the good countries, Chopt-Chandrashila-Deorital is a trek for all and flops none.

The principal large stop on the trek accompanies Deoriatal. Arranged at decent tallness of 7, 800 feet, the lake is held with woodlands all around. At a short separation ahead, the Chaukhamba massif shimmers and its impression is trapped in the precious stone like waters of the lake. The impact is striking. The site is saturated with legends. As goes the story, the five Pandava siblings from the Mahabharata, when parched, had gone to the waters of Deoriatal and confronted a trial of astuteness. Outdoors here the primary night under a stardust sky gains the mellowest of experiences on a trek.

Next up on the line of visual delights are the broad glades that go to snowfields en route to Chopta. As one assist up the path, incredible pinnacles like Bandarppoonch, Kedar, and Chaukhamba to give some examples. These outstanding highlights of Garhwal Himalayas guarantee to get more explained from the apex of Chandrashila, so the inspiration is never lost and one goes on until the finish of the summit stretch at the Tunganath sanctuary.

Day 01: Dehradun – Sari (230 km/8 hrs by cab) 
Starting early morning and drives through the towns of Devprayag and Rudraprayag to reach Sari village. The route follows the river Ganges till Devprayag, the confluence of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. From here, we follow Alaknanda till Rudraprayag, where Alaknanda and Mandakini merge into one. Rudraprayag has been mentioned in the book ‘The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag’ by the famous big cat hunter Jim Corbett. He managed to hunt down the leopard which had killed about 125 people in the area. The river Mandakini is followed upstream from here. We reach Sari by early evening. Overnight in tents near the village.

Day 02: Sari – Deoriatal (3 km/side – 2 hours trek) 2430 M
On this day, we embark on the trail, up the hill to Deoria Tal. The pretty walk through rhododendrons takes one to the ridge above the village. Deoria Tal is a small lake with a meadow beside it. The view of the mountain ranges from here are fabulous. The Chaukhamba massif gets reflected on the clear water at times. Since, the trek is short, one can spend the day soaking in the peaceful forest environment and can also go for short walks around the lake.

Day 03: Deoriatal – Chopta (15 km/7-8 hours trek) 2680 M
The walk on this day is fairly level and through some beautiful forest and meadows. The trail starts from the forest department cottages near Deoriatal. It enters the forest and soon reaches close to a ridge from where the village of Sari is visible far below on our right. We enter the forest again from here. The rhododendron flowers here bloom in spring and one gets the feel of walking through a park. The colors range from red to various shades of pink. If we are trekking in the winter months, some snow can be present in the shadowy areas. There are two camping options, either camp short of Chopta near a stream, or at the meadows below the shops at Chopta.
