Chandrashila Trek


Chandrashila Trek

Chandrashila Trek is undoubtedly one of the most attempted treks in the Uttarakhand region. The trek is between easy to moderate and is the best trek for beginners and mountain lovers. Chandrashila Trek offers a beautiful view of some mighty himalayan peaks like Chaukhamba, Kedar, Bandarpoonch peaks and many more.

Our first campsite of the Chandrashila Trek is at Deoriya Tal which is at an altitude of 2438 Meters. The base location for Deoriya Tal is a beautiful small village called Sari. One can also take a mule to Deoriya Tal although the trek is fairly easy with properly carved out trail. It is a quick 1-2 hours trek up to the Tal. Deoriya Tal is a camping location with beautiful meadows surrounding the lake (Tal) with Forests all around. Deoriya Tal has a mythological relevance as well.

On Day 2, we will trek to Chopta which will be our campsite for the night. The trek through the thick forest through gradual ascends and descends is fairly easy. With stunning views throughout, it is a great day for photgraphy enthusiasts as well. The next morning, we will have an early start. We will be heading today to the summit. The paved trek till the Tungnath Temple (the highest Shiva Temple) in the world, it a contineous ascend. The route has no shops or eateries in the winter season so its extremely important to carry food, dry ration and enough water.

From Tungnath temple, we will now be following a narrow muddy trail till the Chandrahila summit. It will take about 1 hour to reach the top. There is a complete 360 degree view of multiple peaks in sight.

Chandrashila Trek is a great choice for beginners. Along with Chandrashila Trek, there are other options like Kedarkantha Trek, Brhamatal Trek or Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand, Brighu Lake, Kareri Lake Trek, Prashar Lake Trek in Himachal Pradesh or Sham Valley Trek in Ladakh.
