Chopta is also known as mini Switzerland of India due to its enchanting 180 degree view of the imposing Himalayan range including Trishul, Nanda Devi and Chaukhamba. The Chopta region is rich in varied flora and fauna, with plenty of Rhododendron and Deodar trees all around. In our expedition, we will be covering Tungnath (the highest Shiva temple in the world) and Chandrashila Peak located at over 4000 (13000ft meters) offering a 360 degree view the valley. Chandrashila Trek with Chopta and Tungnath is one of the most exciting and challenging trails you can tread in Uttarakhand. This trek is ideal for a beginner as well as an experienced trekker. For a trekker, challenge offers opportunity and we at The Great Escape take all efforts to ensure that you have an exhilarating trekking experience. Strap on those shoes and escape with us to experience a freedom you were meant to live.

Wake up early in the morning as we climb to Tungnath and further to the summit of Chandrashila. The prominently marked track to Tungnath starts from Chopta main strip and is made of concrete throughout, which makes it fairly easy to climb. The trail to Tungnath ascends sharply via a series of 11 scissor bends. The walk is pleasant, but is a very steep climb. The trek up to Tungnath temple is approximately 2 km. After we reach the 10 th bend, we need to look out for a flag and a small temple. Chandrashila peak is 1.5 km above the temple complex. The route to Chandrashila peak is from behind the temple. During winter this trail is completely covered in snow. The climb from Tungnath to Chandrashila is a 600 ft ascent and is a very steep climb. Once at the top of the peak, we get a 360 degree view of the mountains of Garhwal and Kumaon. Walk past the temple and see some great mountains of Uttarakhand, like Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nandaghunti, Kamet, Dunagiri, Chaukhamba, Kedar dome, Thalaysagar, Gangotri ranges, Jahanukut and more. After absorbing the beautiful view, trek back to Chopta via the same route.

After Breakfast today we start to Sari village. and we start out trek from Sari (6554ft) to Deorital (7998ft), A short 3 km trail to the magnificent Deorital lake with the Chaukhamba peak as itโ€™s backdrop. From the small bazar of Sari village a track starts winding up and leaves the village. Initially the trail is gradual and becomes steeper at the later half. We stay at Deorital for the night. This place is a delight for bird watchers. One can spot the common species of that region such as Black Jay, Blue Magpie and various species of Thrushes. After spending some time at the beautiful lake we head back to Sari village and start our journey back to Delhi.

The joy of traveling is to wholly immerse yourself into the story of the place that you travel to and we at TGE Travels bring nothing less than that on the table. Our well thought out itineraries give a deeper insight into the culture and history of a place by getting our travelers closer to the local communities, their customs, cuisines and lifestyle. And it goes without saying that we are the queens of finding offbeat locations, stays and activities which we bring out in all our itineraries. TGE stands for The Great Escape and a trip with us is like pressing the โ€œEscapeโ€ key from the mundane routine to an exciting and cherishable travel experience ๐–๐‡๐Ž ๐€๐‘๐„ ๐–๐„? Established in the year 2016, TGE travels was founded by Reetu Yadav and Jamila Kapasi, two expert mountaineers who had more than 6+ years of experience in mountaineering and the outdoors. TGE Travels is infact one of the rare travel and outdoor companies wholly owned by women with a vision of adding more women leaders in the unconventional outdoor leadership roles. What started as just a trekking company, TGE Travels has evolved into a more wholesome style of traveling by adding experiential traveling as one of its primary services. Our team at TGE Travels are a bunch of travel experts who want to add a meaning to your excursions. We are a strong unit of on ground team leads, backend supports and partner vendors who work cohesively to make your trip smooth and memorable. ๐–๐‡๐˜ ๐“๐†๐„ ๐“๐‘๐€๐•๐„๐‹๐’? ๐‘บ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’๐’ ๐‘ฎ๐’“๐’๐’–๐’‘๐’” Even before Corona, we have firmly believed that traveling in small groups is the best way to form connections and gain experiences. Now more than ever, we are committed to limiting the group size. Our travelers might meet as strangers but we ensure that they leave as friends. ๐‘จ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’›๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐‘ป๐’†๐’‚๐’Ž ๐‘ณ๐’†๐’‚๐’…๐’” What makes TGE Travels awesome are our team leads. They are the reason why our travelers choose to travel with us again and again. Full of energy and enthusiasm, our team leads are the ones who bring the whole group together. Their energy bounces off our travelers and within no time, the entire group forgets that they were just strangers just sometime ago. But of course, our team leads are also very skilled in handling any situation and ensuring the trip goes as smoothly as possible. ๐‘พ๐’†๐’๐’ ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’๐’–๐’ˆ๐’‰๐’• ๐‘ถ๐’–๐’• ๐‘ฐ๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’†๐’“๐’‚๐’“๐’Š๐’†๐’” We have spent endless hours brainstorming on itineraries to bring out the unique stories of the place that we travel to. Not only that, while designing any itinerary our team personally travels to the location to identify experiences and off beat locations. We try to provide the best experience within the timeframe and budget and that has made us popular as one of the more thought driven travel itinerary planners. ๐‘ช๐’‰๐’๐’๐’”๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘น๐’Š๐’ˆ๐’‰๐’• ๐‘บ๐’•๐’‚๐’š๐’” We select our accommodation partners meaningfully. Our stays should have a story to tell. This encourages us in going beyond the standard hotels and instead delving into a wide range of accommodation options where we can choose from authentic homestays, which to us is one of the best ways to learn about the culture of a place, to beautiful resorts that are situated at the perfect picturesque locations to boutique hotels that are elegant and charming. ๐‘บ๐’‚๐’‡๐’† ๐‘ด๐’๐’…๐’† ๐’๐’‡ ๐‘ป๐’“๐’‚๐’๐’”๐’‘๐’๐’“๐’• Just like our accommodation partners, we give a lot of importance in choosing the right transport partners. Most of our journey is on road and we ensure our travelers are comfortable in the vehicle. Our drivers become a part of the group and it's amazing to see how our travelers treat them as just one of their own. When it comes to bike trips or Scooty trips, we ensure the two wheelers are well serviced and maintained. Apart from that we always have a support vehicle with us throughout the journey ๐‘ซ๐’†๐’๐’Š๐’„๐’Š๐’๐’–๐’” ๐‘ญ๐’๐’๐’… Food is an integral part of our itineraries.

It's always a pleasure travelling with TGE! The one thing I love most is their attention to detail, which ensures that your trip is a memorable one. Travelling with TGE is a wholesome experience, you see the larger more iconic places with no compromise on the little things. Travel with them if you want to interact with the people of the place, eat their food, in short experience their lives. These guys do a superb job of making everyone comfortable and everytime I travel with them I make beautiful bonds with all the other travellers. I would 100% recommend TGE to everyone who has the travel bug. It doesn't get better than this! โ˜บ๏ธโค๏ธ

I have known Reetu and Jamila for many years and have worked with them in the past. But this was the first time I decided to travel with them as a participant. When Reetu told me about exploring Spiti in winters I was completely on board. The itinerary sounded exciting and the pricing less. S my friend Manish and I immediately signed up for it. One of the best decisions I ever took. Spiti in winters in beautiful. The 7 days with the team was wonderful. We spent our days driving around the valley and our evenings dancing to pahadi songs. The planning was perfect with utmost care given in the choice of stay and comfort. Of course the highlight of the trip was spotting a snow leopard. Overall it was an amazing trip and I am looking forward to join many more with The Great Escape

Should I describe with โ€œperfect planningโ€ / โ€œmeticulous coordinationโ€/ โ€œcordial organiserโ€...might be with all of it.
Flawless execution is what makes them unique and organiser Reetu Yadav has let all of us experience it with her executional capabilities...
Accommodation:-5/5
Coordination:-5/5
Welcome:-5/5
Clarity n flow of communication:-5/5
Accommodation cleanliness:-5/5
Food:-5/5 (delicious)
Comfort in Mode of Travel:-5/5
Action in Emergency:- very swift 5/5
Team has proved that its not all about the commercial trip but also the cause which is concealed in their carryings. What we pay at Flemingo Resort at Dholavira goes to educate and for taking care of more than 400 students and their boarding facilities as well.
Its not over yet, you will be pleased to meet the gifted souls from remote villages who are manifested in their respective disciplines like Rogan Art (Honโ€™le prime minister himself have gifted one to Barack Obama), Wood Art and Bell Art, Textile etc.
You will get to eat the delicious food made out of love from the local (A1 class food).
Off all, well planned itinerary and the execution is commendable. We RoK team who departed on 12th Decโ€™19 are truly happy with the onsite organiser Reetu Yadav and the offline backbone Jamila Kapasi who took good care of each of us at every stretch.
Their intact affirmative relation and proper delicacy in their execution makes then unique.
My best friend is much impressed with their proceedings and that makes me much happier than ever.
Last but not least, am fortunate to have rest 13 of the participants as part of my extended family. Again the credit goes to TGE.
Kudos to the team and i look for further association with โ€œTHE GREAT ESCAPEโ€ ( you have already give our team a great escape from the routine.
Way to go TGE team!!!

Such great detailed planning at micro level and being open and upfront about the tour details impressed me at the very start. They lived up to their promise in every which way.
TGEโ€™s expression of their solidarity towards the cause of the villagers by getting travellers to interact with them in a lively way and help the villagers in their livelihood was one of the primary reasons I chose to travel with TGE.
TGE means immersive experiential travel and what you get in return and come away with are unforgettable lifetime memories.
Looking forward to many more tours with TGE. Reetu and Jamila pull your collars up. Way to go! You will go miles!

The great escape recently took care of my 10 days family trip to Bhutan. We were 9 of us, including 2 kids and 2 elderlies. Each detail of the trip was so beautifully planned and coordinated. Jamila was personally in touch with drivers, hotels and homestay owners to ensure we ar getting the best of experience. We never even had to look for directions, call hotel or tell driver about anything. Everything was already taken care of and we were just the guests in very true sense. Such a wonderful trip it was. Everything was so beautiful including all the places where we stayed.
Much thanks to Jamila and the great escape team to make it work like magic for us!
100 stars!!
