Tungnath- Highest Shiva Temple Trek
We knew it was going to be a snowy trek, but what we saw was much more than we expected.
We started our trek at 9:30Am and reached Tungnath by 12:30. Although the Trek was 3.5 km but it took 3 hours to complete it because of snow. The path was covered with 2.5-3ft of snow.
Tungnath is the Highest Shiva Temple in the world & is one of the 5 kedars.
We tried to Go to Chandrashila peak but because of bad weather & snow could not complete it. It started raining with hails at Tungnath ji.
After reaching at the top the difficult task was to trek down in the snow. Although it was fun but dangerous at times. We slipped our way down in snow, sometimes willingly and sometimes just because it was slippery & steep.
It took 1.5 - 2 hours to reach down to Chopta from where we went to our rooms at Shivansh Cafe, Baniyakund. And rested for a while.
