UThis is a beautiful trek, with difficulty level rated as easy to moderate. The trek passes through forests and vast meadows, and offers excellent views of snow clad Himalayas.

We start from Okhimath, and pass through Deoria tal, Chopta and Tungnath to reach the summit of Chandrashila for an amazing view of the Himalayas. Maximum altitude reached would be around 3950 at the summit of Chandrashila.

The region is a protected sanctuary for musk deer, and is rich in flora and fauna. Our first camp at Deoria tal is near a pristine lake ringed with forest. The view of Chaukhamba peaks is one of the most prominent in the entire journey. We would be further camping in the meadows of Chopta, and then at Tungnath. Each camp site would offer excellent views to the Himalayan peaks.

Tungnath is famous for the highest temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Beyond Tungnath there is a small summit called Chandrashila which is a very beautiful vantage point to experience Himalayas in a wide spectrum. One would see the entire range in almost a 270 degrees of visibility, with peaks like Chaukhamba, Kedarnath, Nanda devi and Trishul among the most prominent ones.
