Trip Highlights

If you’re looking for a snow-globe-like hamlet that is well-connected without compromising on the thrilling feeling of being somewhere in the wilderness, far away from home, the Chopta Chandrashila trek is for you! The Chopta trek is an up-and-coming destination of desire in the trekking diaries of many adventurers today, because of its pristine, untouched beauty and the abundant opportunities to indulge in the various vibrant areas of interest in and around the area.

If you are a lover of the winter season and your senses long for snow, the Chopta-Chandrashilla trek is not one to disappoint. Because of the magnificent altitude of Chopta, which is a whopping 8,790 feet, one is sure to experience low temperatures on the Chopta Chandrashila trek, regardless of the time of the year. The views from the top of the trekking destination are heavenly – especially since it makes you feel like you are above the earth, with the world spread out like a story under you. With the beautiful Deorital Lake acting as the ultimate treat of the entire journey, the Chopta-Chandrashila trek journey is an absolute phenomenon.

The allure of the chandrashila trek is also heavily dependent on its rich flora and fauna. With sprawling growths of alpine vegetation, especially including deodars, pines, maples, and the bright rhododendrons that the region is well-loved for, the Chopta-Chandrashilla trek is waiting to reveal its wonders to anyone willing to surmount its depths. The trek also offers the opportunity to spot some of the rarest, most interesting specimens of wildlife available in Uttarakhand, like the musk deer and birds like the snow partridge, snow cock and Monal. This factor alone makes it a place glistening with snow and the promise of a breathtaking experience, especially for seasoned adventurers and photographers

Trek Overview

Located wholly in the Kedarnath wildlife sanctuary, which is a part of the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, Chopta is one of the more youthful treasures of the state. One factor that makes it incredibly attractive is its accessibility. Haridwar, which is the starting point of our journey, is only about 220 km away from Delhi and can be traversed via sturdy, well-made roads without much hassle. This makes the trek a fun, uncomplicated getaway. While covering this trek, we have the fortune of coming across some very interesting points in our path, like the Tungnath temple, which happens to be the highest Shiva temple in the world and the Chandrashila peak.

The difficulty of the Chopta – Chandrashila trek lies somewhere between easy and moderate, making it a great winter trek even for budding adventurers. It is compact without taking away any of the thrills and is three nights and four days long. Though there is a difference between the temperature in the summer and the winter season in Chopta, it is a predominantly cold place, owing to the altitude and basic geography. Anyone looking to traverse the trek in the midst of snowfall is sure to witness some between the months of January and March. Otherwise, even the summer months (April to June) prove to be a very pleasant time to embark on this trek. Trekking to Chopta – Chandrashila during monsoons is not recommended because it may prove to be risky.

Bird-watching is one of the activities that make this trek unique and rich. Camping in this region is also a wonderful experience in itself, because of the unparalleled views and unforgettable experiences that it offers.
