CHANDRASHILA TREK WITH CHOPTA TUNGNATH

4 DAYS | STARTS/ENDS: HARIDWAR

A quaint and rustic village in Uttarakhand, Tungnath is better known as the starting point of the much acclaimed Chopta Chandrashila Trek. Reaching a height of 2,680m, this picturesque hamlet is adorned with the enchanting beauty of the evergreen pine, deodar and rhododendron forests.

Be it the untouched beauty or the natural marvels around this Chopta, its myriad list of offerings and pictorial appeal has earned it the fame of being called the 'Mini Switzerland of India'. While during the summers or springs, the entire vicinity gets embraced with the charm and appeal of the exotic vegitation, during the winters, Chopta wears a thick blanket of snow that makes it even more appealing.
