Trek Overview

The Deoriatal-Chandrashila Trek is a weekend trek in Uttarakhand that takes you through Chopta, Deoriatal Lake and Chandrashila peak. You may embark upon this short trek to revitalize yourself with some of the elegant offerings of nature in the form of soothing climate, mountain birds, dense forests with maple, rhododendron and oak trees, and captivating views of peaks like Trishul and Nanada Devi.

While the trail to Chopta is all about luxuriant meadows and mountainous dwellings amid the Himalayan ranges, the further march takes you to the Tungnath peak which sits at a height of about 3700m. Tungnath also features the highest Shiva shrine in the world. Further into the trek, Lake Deoriatal would mesmerize you with its charm and here you’d get to see animals and birds drinking slurping its shimmering water. This trek is recommended for post-monsoon season where the snow-clad mountains would let you admire and experience the bliss of eternity.

As for the level of difficulty, the trek is considered as a fairly easier one though some abrupt climbs and rugged terrain may test your trekking skills from time to time. The trek to the summit of Chandrashila at about 4000m and marks the final leg of your uphill journey, whereupon it would be a return to Chopta, the base camp. This six day trail would involve trekking almost 30 kms and with salubrious weather in this region, one can always expect a great time here.
