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 a very short distance and thus the climb is all uphill.

Tungnath
: During the final stretch to reach Tungnath you will reach a rocky cliff on the right which is known as Raavan Shila. Continue walking towards Tungnath Temple. Magnificent in its style and architecture Tungnath is considered more than 1000 years old. The main temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and other small rock temples in the vicinity are dedicated to Goddess Parvati. The temple remains closed during winter.

Chandrashila: Another 1.5 km steep hike from Tungnath temple will lead you to Chandrashila Summit. The trail becomes narrow as we climb up the meadows of Chandrashila Peak. Chandrashila is the summit of the mountain on which Tungnath temple is situated. A beautiful small temple is situated on the summit along with several unique cairn structures. Chandrashila is perched at an elevation of 4,000 mts above sea level offering splendid views of the majestic Himalayan peaks including Kedar Dome, Chaukhamba, Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Kamet, Gangotri Ranges & more.

Burjgali: Spend some time at Chandrashila Summit witnessing the heavenly horizon and then start descending towards Bhrujgali. Chopta is another 1 km downhill hike from Bhrujgali that just takes around 20 min to traverse. Chopta is an emerging hill station that acts as another commencement point of the trek to Tungnath and Chandrashila. Stay in Chopta hotel.
