Detailed Itinerary - Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek

Day 0: Delhi to Sari via Rishikesh 

The journey to the ‘Switzerland of India’ begins from Delhi. Trekkers will have to assemble at a given pick-up point, from where we will commence for Rishikesh. Thereafter, the travel routes will shift into a mountain drive for 8 hours, ending at Sari, the following morning. We shall pass through Meerut and Muzzafarnagar, Rokree and Haridwar. On the way, you’ll surely get a glimpse of the lower Himalayan ranges that will inevitably fill your senses with freshness!

Day 1: Trek from Deoriatal to Chopta

Wake up to a pleasant morning and gear up for a long trek. Post breakfast, we begin our trek to Chopta. It’s a 14-kilometer long trail that passes through dense forest, steep stretches, green pastures, and meadows. We shall begin trekking toward Jhandi peak through which we would have to cross three considerable steep stretches.

Through the trek, keep your senses alert for Jackals and rarely giant squirrels. The opening to the meadows is where we will stop for some packed delicious lunch. Soon after, get ready for a moderately hard descent, especially in the monsoon season. Nonetheless, don’t lose hope yet, you can totally do this! And looking at the brighter side, the descend is a short one with a rewarding destination. Completing the descent and an hour-long ascent will bring us to our campsite for the night. Enjoy the Chopta sunset, build memories alongside your tents for the night, indulge in dinner and sleep like a baby, for you have a big day coming along!

Day 2: Trek from Chopta to Chandrashila via Tunganath and return journey (10 KM trek)

We begin a rather early day this time in order to catch the sunrise by the summit. After driving to Chopta, we shall begin trekking toward Tunganath Temple and Chandrashila. The trek to Tunganath is approximately 3.5km in distance and 1.5km of trekking will bring us to the Chandrashila peak, the whole journey taking us about 4 hours. Interestingly, Tunganath Temple, one of the Panch (five) Kedar, is considered to be the highest temple of Lord Shiva. One the other hand, the Chandrashila peak is 4000m above the sea level gives us a panoramic view of the magnificent Uttarakhand peaks – Kedarnath, Chaukhamba, Nanda Gunti, Hathi, Ghodi, Nanda Devi amongst many others.

Initially, the trail to Tunganath is rocky but eventually changes to traditional high altitude trek terrain. Reaching the Chandrashila peak will mark the end of exploring beautiful destinations during this trek. Nonetheless, a beautiful journey doesn’t end here. We further descend to Chopta through the same route. 

Enjoy a hot dinner, indulge in some talk and pose against a starry night sky. Take adequate rest and relax your muscles.

Day 3: Trek to Deoriatal 

The trek to Deoriatal starts after lunch, considering the distance to be covered is merely about 3 kilometers, which will take about 2 hours. This way, we get to enjoy the beauty of the Deoriatal lake in the evening when the sky looks its best and the weather gets pleasant. The trail is mildly steep and brimming with Oak and Rhododendron. Reaching the Sari Temple and campsite would mean the end of this happening trek. 

The return journey to Delhi follows the same trial as the arrival journey. Thus, we drive to Delhi via Rishikesh, reaching it by early the next morning. 

This would mark the end of the trek to Deoriatal – Chopta – Chandrashila. We are sure to offer you a blissful trekking experience with us. Head back home with a backpack full of amazing memories, stories, and experiences that are gonna stay with you forever.  You will have energetic tales to speak about and mind-blowing views to brag about! 

Make sure to share with others the joy of connecting with the clouds amidst natural flora and fauna instead of the skyscraping concrete jungle! We’d look forward to having you onboard 🙂
