4 Nights Chopta, Devariyatal & Rohini Bugyal Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrival at Sari Village – Trek to Deoria Tal (Trek: 2.5 kms)

Reach Sari Village and meet our guide, who will give you quick briefing and refreshments. Sari village is the starting point of the 2.5 km trek to Deoria Tal. Gradually ascending trail through the forests of rhododendron, alpine and oak trees will end up at Deoria Tal. The path is well made and broad too. It just takes one and a half hour to reach Deoria Tal from Sari Village. Deoria Tal is a gorgeous lake nestled amidst elevated meadows with few huts nearby that provides accommodation.

Deoria Tal is situated at an elevation of 2,400 mts above sea level with picture perfect location and backdrop of the mighty Chaukhamba peaks. The reflection of Himalayan range on the pristine waters of this lake is a view that will be etched in your minds forever.

Day 2 : Deoria Tal – Rohini Bugyal – Chopta (Trek: 14 kms)

Option 1: Trek via Rohini Bugyal
After early morning exploration of Deora Tal, we will quickly have our breakfast. After that we will start our trek. The trail to Rohini Bugyal doesn’t involve much steep climb and there are several ups and downs during this stretch. The route passes through some of the most beautiful forests rich in a wide variety of flora. Red and pink colored Rhododendrons (during spring) will greet you at every step. You need to cross Jhandi Dhar while trekking towards Rohini Bugyal. Jhandi Dhar (2,650 mts) is a ridge top that offers clear views of Kedar Dome and Chaukhamba Peaks. Chandrashila Peak also becomes visible after trekking for a few kilometres.

There are very few water points at this stretch so do carry extra water. It is advisable that you carry two water bottles for this trek. Perched at an elevation of 2730 mts above sea level, Rohini Bugyal is a small meadow but a beautiful campsite which offers stunning views of Himalayan peaks. Enjoy packed lunch at Rohini Bugyal. A short hike of 6 kms from Rohini Bugyal ends up at Chopta from there we can either walk to our hotel or campsite. It takes around 6 to 7 hours to complete this trek.

Note: Rohini Bugyal trek will not be possible during winters from Mid December to March, as most of the trail will be covered with snow. However, it will be subject to amount of snow and trek leader/guide decision will be final. In that case the Option 2 will be applicable.

Option 2: Reaching Chopta by Road
In this option we will have a relaxed morning and ample of time for Himalayan View, strolling around lake. You can also do bird watching or nature photography. We will descend down after lunch to Sari Village. Drive to Chopta hotel or campsite (transportation is not inlcuded, but can be arranged on extra cost, as per actual). Enjoy evening tea with snacks followed by dinner. You can stroll around, do team building activity along with your group or just relax for next day trek.

Note: If camping is not allowed by forest department, then we will provide stay in a hotel in Chopta (Mayadeep Hotel or Similar)

Day 3 : Chopta – Tungnath – Chandrashila Summit – Chopta (Trek: 10 kms)

Start early in the morning for Chopta Tungnath and Chandrashila trek after breakfast.

This entire region comes under Kedarnath Musk Deer Sanctuary so there are chances that you might spot wildlife in the morning including Wild Goat and Himalayan Monal. The trail from Chopta to Tungnath temple is broad and well maintained. During today’s trek, you will be gaining altitude in very short distance and thus the climb is all uphill.

Day 4 : Departure from Chopta

Enjoy the morning in Chopta with breakfast. Our trek services ends at Chopta. Tour ends with memories of this majestic trekking expedition at Chopta.
