We would recommend you to go with some travel agency because weather is not predictable in mountains and without proper preparation it can be an issue.They will also provide you timely food and keep check on you health. Also they have their toilet tents so will not have to search for places around to litter. Focus on your health, start running, do proper research for required things to carry.

chandrashila is amazing hike,from my recent travel experience the trail is full of blossoming Rhododendron but we encountered a lot of snow on the trail,which made it a bit difficult to scale and it took a lot of our time to reach there but the experience was amazing.
you can start a road journey from your place till Haridwar or Rishikesh if want to go from Garhwal region or from Kathgodam if you want to experience the kumaon Himalayas from there reach chopta and camp stay there,it would cost around 800-1500 depending on the availability of camps and bargaining skills.
next day start your trek to tungnath and chandrashila.
if you have time then visit Deoriatal as well it is also an amazing destination. if you want to travel from 16 may iam organising a trek to tungnath-chandrashilla-deoriatall, feel free to contact at
