Deoriatal-Chopta-Chandrashila Trek

Deoriatal-Chopta-Chandrashila

This all-season trek is known for its scenic beauty. It passes through some beautiful forests and affords excellent views of the snow clad peaks. The trek gives one the opportunity to visit the 1000-year-old Tungnath temple, which is the highest shrine of Lord Shiva. It is one of the panch-kedars and is believed to have been built by Arjuna himself. Chandrashila is famous for its breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges. It is one of the few peaks that can also be climbed in the winter months.

We also visit the picturesque Deoriatal which is famous for mirroring the Chaukhamba peak in its waters. A lake shrouded in legends, it is believed the Devas (Gods) bathed in this lake and hence the name. Some say that it was the place from where the mighty Pandavas of the epic Mahabharata were asked queries by Yaksha. The lake is also believed to be the “Indra Sarovar” referred to in the Puranas by wandering Sadhus.
