After visiting a lot of places in Himachal, i wanted to explore some of the places in Uttrakhand which is also my native place. After all the research, i decided to go to this place called chopta tungnath. I have read a lot about it and have always wanted to go to this part of Uttrakhand. It is situated in upper region of garhwal in the rudraprayag district. Garhwal is home to a lot of such beautiful places which are unspoiled beauty and this was the opportunity I didn't wanted to miss. We 4 people took one of our friend's car and left late night around 12 PM for chopta. Since there are no bus availability in chopta we had to take a car. We drove via Rishikesh route in order to avoid traffic jam due to road cutting on the other side of the area. After driving for 19 hours we reached chopta around 6 in the evening. Chopta is at quite a good height and altitude making the roads even sharper and difficult for the driver to drive. Snow was visible around 5-6 km before chopta and temperature reduced miserably within this distance. After reaching chopta, we booked 2 rooms in a homestay for 500 each because of less traffic of tourist and off season, so these might not be the charges for rooms in summers. The night at chopta has to be the coldest night of my life. I have never ever witnessed this kind of cold anywhere before. Feets and hands were numb, even after 5 layers of clothes the body was still cold and almost dead. Somehow after asking a bit about the tungnath trek and knowing what all we can expect up there we went to sleep after dinner. And yes we had good dinner at cost of 400 for 4 people, not a bad deal though!! Most important there are no mobile networks for airtel, vodafone but yes idea, jio and bsnl would do fr you.
