The favourite part of the experience was the summit and the view of the snow capped mountains. the icing on the cake though was the superbly organised trek ably led by our trek leader and supported very well by his team. There was nothing lacking and we had great food and an amazing motivator with us in the form of our trek leader. Will definitely recommend this trek as it pushes you both physically and mentally and the completion is a spiritual experience in itself.

I had never heard of Dayara Bugyal before going on this journey. But what surprised me the most was that it was one of the most beautiful places in India. Thank you Offbeat Vacation for recommending this trip to me.

Frequest Questions

Yes, compared to other high-altitude treks, Tungnath Chandrashila is easy to moderately difficult. In reality, it is the ideal chance for beginners to experience a snow trek in the Himalayas.

At chopta, which is the starting point of the trek. On the trek route and campsite, Jio networks are available but not at every point.

There are a few ways to get to Chopta from Delhi, including by car, bus, and train. Most people take a bus or a car from Delhi to Rishikesh, and then another bus or car to Chopta. The closest train station to Chopta is in Haridwar, which is about 230 km away. You can take a bus or drive from Haridwar to Chopta.

Yes, In winter, Uttarakhand's Chopta hill station gets snow. Winter sports like skiing are popular in Chopta since the temperature drops below freezing in December and January. The area near Chopta gets a lot of snow, making it a popular hiking and trekking site. Before visiting Chopta in winter, verify the weather as snowfall can fluctuate year to year.

Mount Tungnath is the tallest of Uttarakhand's five Panch Kedar temples. The world's highest Shiva temple and third highest Panch Kedar summit. It's 3,680 metres (12,073 ft) high.

Yes, it is possible to do the Tungnath trek in January, but you should keep in mind that the weather will have a big effect on how long it takes. Many tourists do the Chopta trek in January, but you should check the weather. There is a chance there won't be any snow. This will make it easier to finish the trek in less time. Heavy snow could make it hard to finish.
