About Tunganath Chandrashila Deoriatal Trek

The Chopta Chandrashila Tunganath trek is a popular trekking route located in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, India. It's renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, spiritual significance, and panoramic views of the Himalayas. Here are the details of this trek:

Location: The trek begins from Chopta, a picturesque hill station known as the "Mini Switzerland of Uttarakhand." Chopta is the base camp for the journey to Tungnath Temple and further to Chandrashila Peak.

Duration: The Chopta Chandrashila Tunganath trek usually takes around 3-4 days to complete, depending on the pace and the time spent at various points along the way.

Trek Difficulty: The trek is considered moderate in difficulty, making it suitable for beginners as well as experienced trekkers. The trail involves gradual ascents and descents through forests, meadows, and rocky paths.

Key Highlights:

  1. Tungnath Temple: It is the highest Shiva temple in the world and a significant pilgrimage site. The trek to Tungnath involves a climb to an altitude of around 3,680 meters (12,073 feet).

  2. Chandrashila Peak: After Tungnath, the trail ascends further to Chandrashila Peak at an elevation of about 4,000 meters (13,000 feet). The summit offers mesmerizing 360-degree panoramic views of the Himalayan ranges, including Nanda Devi, Trishul, Chaukhamba, and more.

Best Time to Visit: The ideal time to undertake this trek is from March to May and from September to November when the weather is pleasant and the trails are accessible. The winter months offer a chance to experience snow, but the trek may be more challenging due to cold temperatures and snow-covered paths.

Precautions and Tips: Proper acclimatization, carrying sufficient water, trekking gear, warm clothing, and essentials are crucial. It's advisable to have a local guide for navigation, especially if trekking during the off-season.
