Why Chopta Chandrashila Is A Must Do Trek

One of the most stunning treks in the Garhwal region, the Deoriatal-Chopta-Chandrashila Trek beautifully presents the grandeur of the Himalayas. There are not many treks that offer vantage points like Chandrashila with astounding panoramas of mountains, the likes of Nanda Devi, Bandarpoonch, Chaukhamba, Kedar Peak and Mt. Trishul.

Along the trek, you get to see a beautiful emerald lake Deoriatal, the holy shrine of Tungnath, the highest Shiva Temple in the world, and the captivating summit point of Chandrashila. This trek offers so much while also being an easy-moderate trek, suitable for beginners. The fascinating trek takes you to an altitude of approximately 12,100 ft above sea level with rewarding views.


The Himalayan hamlet Chopta is a picturesque destination in itself, steeped in nature rsquo s abundance. It rsquo s an unexplored destination in Uttarakhand where you can reconnect with nature and refresh and rejuvenate yourself. There are lots of delight on this trek that makes it such a rewarding experience.

About The Trek

Chopta Valley is located at an altitude of 2680 meters and is surrounded by immense natural beauty. Being an offbeat location, nature here is untouched by civilization and you can witness it in its raw and pristine form. Set foot on this adventure-filled trek with our Mountaineering certified trek leaders and expert local guides. The Deoriatal-Chopta-Chandrashila Trek starts from Rishikesh. We will pick you up from the Rishikesh TTH Head office (Tapovan), early in the morning and drive to Sari Village. Sari is a lovely Himalayan village that serves as the base for Deoriatal. It is about 190 km away from Rishikesh and takes about 7 hr to reach.

Day 2 is our first trekking day as we trek from Sari to Deoriatal. Sari to Deoriatal is a short hike of about 3 km and it takes only about an hour. Situated at an altitude of 7800 ft, Deoriatal gives you amazing views of the mighty Chaukhamba peaks. On a clear day, you can catch the reflection of the peaks on the water, a surreal sight to capture. You will camp at night near the lake.

The next day you will trek from Deoriatal to Baniyakund via Rohini Bugyal. It is at a distance of 16 km and takes 7-8 hrs to complete the trek. Baniyakund in Chopta Valley is at an altitude of 8,700 ft and unfolds the sights of alpine grasslands and meadows along the trek, you will also come across a beautiful cascading waterfall. Camp here for the night with beautiful spectacles of stars overhead.

The following day, we will drive from Baniyakund to Chopta (3 km away) and from Chopta we will begin our trek to Tungnath and Chandrashila. Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world and is a revered place of worship for the Hindus. Chandrashila is the highest vantage point on the trek gives you unobstructed views of some major Himalayan peaks. We will descend to Chopta the same day and drive back to Baniyakund.

On the last day of our trek, we will drive back from Baniyakund to Rishikesh following the same route that we came in taking with you memories of the mountains. Avail comfortable transfer facilities with us from and to Rishikesh.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

The summit point of the Chopta-Chandrashila Trek is at an altitude of 12,100 ft above sea level and thus offers distinct views of the mountains all around. The entire trek starting from Sari to Chandrashila and back covers approximately 30 km approximately and an experienced guide and our mountaineering certified trek leaders will accompany you throughout the trek, ensuring that you get the best out of your experience.

Chopta-Chandrashila is an easy to moderate-grade trek which makes it suitable for beginner trekkers as well as families. You will enjoy some of the most beautiful views and stay in high-quality tents with a hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared by our cook. Our cooks are local individuals, so you get to try out the regional cuisine of the region.

The last ATM point is at Ukhimath, however, cash availability cannot always be guaranteed. So it is recommended that you carry enough cash with you. If you wish to withdraw cash then do so at Rishikesh, there are many ATM facilities in Rishikesh.

Being a high-altitude trek, the temperature varies in the trek so make sure you dress appropriately in layers to protect yourself from the varied temperature conditions. During the daytime, the temperature remains between 8 degrees C to 15 degrees C but at night the temperature drops quite low and lingers between 3 degrees C to -5 degrees C.

Our trek leaders are Wilderness First Aid Responders as well and they are always available to ensure maximum safety and provide you with more information that helps you get the most out of the trek. Also, electricity is available at very few locations so it is recommended to carry extra batteries for your electronic devices. Keep your luggage as minimal as possible and above all enjoy your experience.

En route Sari, you will pass a holy confluence at Devprayag, one of the five prayags. This is a sacred site for the Hindus as it sees the confluence of two rivers Alakananda and Bhagirathi. As you traverse along the mountain road, the river keeps you company all along the way and you will also enjoy captivating views of the lower Garhwal Himalayas. 


The Sari village is a small mountain settlement with about 100 houses lined on the mountains and many beautiful paddy fields enhancing its natural beauty.

Today is the first day of your adventure and you will trek from Sari to Deoriatal. It is a very short trek of about 3 km that takes you to Deoriatal. The trek to Deoriatal is quite easy with mixed ascents and descents along the way.



From Sari follow the well-defined rocky trail that gradually climbs up the mountains. Keep walking on the trail and after 30 minutes, you will come across your first major viewpoint. Stop for a while and treat your eyes to alluring views of mountains and valleys. Treading further along the trail, you will come across a forest of maple and Rhododendron. If you visit during the spring, the Rhododendrons will be red and blooming, a beautiful visual treat. Another hour or so and you arrive at Deoriatal. 


Deoriatal provides the perfect dreamy setting for camping. The lovely alpine lake is nestled beautifully in a mountain clearing and is surrounded on all sides by the majestic Garhwal Himalayas. Mt. Chaukhamba is the most prominent here and it casts its reflection on the lake waters, a surreal sight to behold.  Wait until morning when the mist lifts and the sun rays warm up the peaks in a golden glow. The snow-clad mountains in the backdrop with the lake taking center-stage, it is the perfect place to capture some Instagram-worthy shots.


From the trail, you can spot the Chandrashila summit and below it, the Tungnath temple, which is just a speck in the mountains and you may need binoculars to spot the temple. Deoriatal is also a Green-Trail hotspot and you are going to find a lot of litter around the campsites, keep your eco bags ready to collect the garbage.


Reaching Deoriatal, we will set out tents for the night and a hot lunch and dinner will be provided at the campsite. You will have almost an entire day in your hand that you can use to explore the area and acclimatize as well. This is also a popular site for birdwatching and you may even spot some rare Himalayan birds. Explore the trails around the campsite and let the tranquillity of the mountains slowly engulf you.

    • Stay in Cottages/ Swiss Camp (triple/quad/dormitory).

Today is the most scenic day of your trek and a treat for all nature lovers. Today’s trail is made spectacular with the Rhododendron covers that become denser and denser as you trek uphill. The Kedar dome and the Chaukhamba peaks also peek through the tree covers. You will spot two varieties of Rhododendrons here, red and pink and during the months of March and April, the trail is set ablaze in hues of crimson. The forest cover soon opens into a beautiful clearing, the Rohini Bugyal meadow which is lined with Rhododendrons on all sides. 


The trek today is moderate starting with a gradual ascent followed by a slight descent, which eases to a gradual ascent until Rohini Bugyal. From Rohini Bugyal there’s a steep descent followed by a mix of ascents and descents to Baniyakund. As the Rhododendron cover clears up, you will get clear views of Chandrashila peak in the distance, and on your right below, you can see the Sari village once again. 


The trail passes through Kedarnath Sanctuary, so you may be able to spot some Himalayan Wildlife like red foxes and other small animal species and birds like Griffon Vultures, which are huge birds of prey as well as Verditer Flycatcher and Himalayan Woodpecker. Every now and then, you may also come across small shrines with prayer flags tied to them. These temples are built by the locals. Walk for 20 more minutes and you will reach a landmark temple, the Bagdwal temple and you will spot three paths branching out.


One route connects back to Sari village, another connects to Ukhimath and there’s a third descending path, which leads us to Rohini Bugyal. The Chandrashila and Kala Parvat become quite prominent from here. Walk for about 30 minutes and you will pass a small rivulet. This is your water source and you can fill your bottles here. Tread across a wooden bridge to cross the river and a small uphill climb will lead you to Rohini Bugyal.


As you climb uphill from Rohini Bugyal, the views get better and better and you will observe a series of shepherd huts lining the hills. During the summer months, the locals occupy these huts along with their livestock. The Rohini Bugyal meadows provide the perfect spot for cattle grazing. From here, crossing a few gradual ascents, you will reach Baniyakund. Further ahead, there is a motorable road that leads to Chopta, and from here take the trail on the right to reach the Baniyakund campsite, a clearing between the forests. You will stay overnight in Cottages/ Camp.

    • Stay in Cottages/ Swiss Camp (triple/quad/dormitory).

Today is the summit day and we will have an early start at the wee hours before sunrise so that we can catch the sunrise from Tungnath. The path from Chopta to Tungnath wades along a well-defined, concrete trail. The trek from Chopta to Tungnath is about 3 km and the trail entwines along meadows and forests before making way to the Tungnath temple and 1.5 km from Tungnath lies Chandrashila summit. The trail remains buried deep in snow during the winters adding to the challenge of the climb to Chandrashila from Tungnath, which is already quite steep.


The trail from Chopta to Tungnath is well-defined which makes it quite accessible but at the same time, it is a little steep with numerous scissor bends. As you make your way to the second last scissor bend, you can see the Tungnath temple on the right and the Chandrashila summit. The views start getting increasingly better from here and Tungnath Temple is just half a kilometer away. On the left is a view overlooking a valley of Birch trees, which is again a prime spot to sight bird species like Monal and Griffon Vultures.


Soon you will reach the Tungnath temple, which remains closed in winter and you will find snow until April here. The Tungnath Temple is one of the Panch Kedars and is steeped in mythology and folklore. The legend according to Mahabharata goes that the Panch Kedars was built by the Pandavas, asking for Lord Shiva’s forgiveness and atonement of their sins incurred by killing their kins in the battle of Kurukshetra. Lord Shiva appeared in a bull form and parts of the bull appeared in these five locations, where the shrines were built. Tungnath is where the limbs and chest of the bull appeared.


From Tungnath temple, the trek to the Chandrashila summit is a short but challenging one as it is pretty steep. Crampons and gaiters are a must if you are attempting this trek in the winter. Follow your trek leaders instructions to safely make it to the summit. The trail to Chandrashila starts just behind the temple complex. You ascend 600 ft from Tungnath conquering a very steep climb. Once you reach the Chandrashila Base, the Chandrashila peak becomes visible and another 30 to 45 minutes climb takes you to the summit, where you will get some epic mountain views including Mt. Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Nanda Devi, Thalaysagar, Gangotri Ranges, Kamet, Chaukhamba, Kedar Dome, Dunagiri, Jahanukut and more.


The sunrise view from the Chandrashila summit is unlike any you will ever see and this is one of the best photo points in the Himalayas. At Chandrashila summit there is another temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, which is believed to have been built by Lord Rama for the atonement of the sin of killing Ravana. The trek back to Chopta follows the same path. Retrace your steps back to Chopta and from there you will drive back to the Baniyakund Cottages/ Camp.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason.

In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.


In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.
