So it was from a very long time I have been thinking of doing my first solo trek. Finally I decided to do the Chandrashila - Tunganath Circuit. Chandrashila trek is an easy trek which can be done solo with duration of around 3 days. I had read a lot about the beauty of Tunganth trail and the scenic view of the himalayas we get from the chandrashila top. I booked an overnight bus from Kashmiri Gate ISBT at 9:30 pm. Reached Rishikesh at around 3:00 am . From Rishikesh direct buses are available for Rudraprayag . From Rudraprayag, you have to take a bus to Ukhimath. Regular cabs are also available from Rudraprayag. Fortunately I got a direct bus from rishikesh to ukhimath. The bus starts at 4 in the morning. The drivers of Uttarakhand Transport Corporation are truly legends. Even in the mountains they have the skills to drive the bus like a F1 car. Surprisingly, I reached ukhimath at 8:30 in the morning . From ukhimath , there are two options either you can go to Saari Village and trek to Deoriyatal which is a short 2-3 km hike. You can spend the night at Deoriyatal. The other option is to directly go to Chopta and start the chandrashila trek . Its a steep 4 km trek which takes around 3-4 hours depending on your speed. There are a few accommodation options available at chopta. Since I had reached early and I had the whole day to myself I decided to do the Chandrashila Trek first. Options for going to chopta from ukhimath are limited , specially if you are travelling alone. The cost of the taxi upto chopta is 1000 bucks . You can share it with other travellers to reach there cheaply . I reached chopta around 9:30 in the morning. Ate a light breakfast at Chopta and started my trek towards Tungnath - Chandrashila at 11.
