My friend and I were sitting idle at our work stations and were discussing about treks over a cup of tea. She told me about this lesser known place called Chopta-Tungnath. When I googled about this place, it said that Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world and is one of the five and the highest Panch Kedar temples located in the mountain range of Tungnath in Rudraprayag district, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, at an elevation of 12,073 ft.
After finishing our tea, we decided to run away to this less explored place during the coming long weekend.
If you're planning your trip from Delhi, there's no direct bus from Delhi to Chopta. You will have to book a bus from Delhi to Rishikesh. From Rishikesh,there are frequent buses which goes till Rudraprayag and from there to Ukhimath. You can either stay at Ukhimath, it's near to the market place and a few kilometres away from Chopta or else choose a homestay or camping near Chopta but you might not find electricity there.
We boarded our bus from Kashmere Gate ISBT around 9:30 PM.
