About Chopta Chandrashila Trek
Keeping away the clamour of the city life, Chopta valley is perched at an
elevation of 2,680 meters and is surrounded by an imposing forest of Oak,
deodar and rhododendron that shadow a rich bed of flowering plants. The
spell bound Chandrashila Summit Trek is characterized by grandeur of its
Himalayan Peak. One of the most beautiful treks in the Garhwal Himalayan
region, the Chandrashila Summit Trek, maneuvers through beautiful meadows
and the unpaved trails. At reaching the summit, feast your eyes on the
spectacular view of the Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi at 7,817 meters,
Trishul at 7,120 meters, Kedarnath at 6,831 meters, Bandarpunch at 6,316
meters and Chaukhamba at 7,138 meters.
It is best to start early in the morning from Chopta to Tungnath, which is
the highest Shiva Temple in the world, located at a height of 3,680 meters.
The temple is one of the Panch Kedars and is tucked in the lap of the
Chandrashila peak. It is believed that Tungnath is more than 1000 years old
and holds a legend that corroborates some of the incidents depicted in the
Mahabharata epic. From Tungnath temple, a further ascent of an hour
terminates atop the Chandrashila summit wherefrom one can capture the
silvery sheen of the Himalayan range dotted with several peaks and also of
all the green valleys and deep gorges.
The Chandrashila summit trek, which can be journeyed all throughout the
year, is considered as one of the moderate treks in the Indian Himalayan
region that is located in Uttarakhand. The duration of the trail is
approximately 3-6 days. The journey displays rare glimpses of an ancient
culture of the Garhwal Himalaya along with the natural hues.

Best Time to Visit Chopta Chandrashila Trek
Best time to travel to Chopta is in summers (April – June) and winters
(Oct – Dec). Winter treks are also conducted in Chopta and the best months
to trek are between Jan and March.
In Summers: The weather of Chopta remains salubrious during summers. The
Himalayas are distinctly visible and the cool breeze can felt early in the
morning and in the late evening. Carrying light woolens is advised.
In Monsoon: Chopta turns greener during the monsoon season. Although
trekking becomes challenging and there are chances of getting roads blocked
for a couple of hours due to landslides, the scenic beauty of Chopta during
monsoons is worth taking the risk for. Carrying raincoats is advised.
In Winters: The region gets blanketed in snow during the winter season and
the accommodation options are also restricted to few. But Chopta looks the
best during winters and indeed the trek becomes more difficult. Carrying
heavy woolens is advised.
