Exploring the area
If you are on 2 -3 days trip, there are lot of options which this beautiful hamlet has to offer:
Tungnath temple - rich in its history and proud for being the highest temple (3680 m) among st the 5 kedars and also the Garehwal region is more than enough for a reason to visit, if you’re looking for one. It can be done on the same day if you start your day relatively early. With astonishing views of the range and moderate level of trek will make every moment of your time worth. You will find few options to stay and eat in Tungnath.
Chandrashilla – Mountain top ahead of Tungnath is certainly a must visit, provided you are planning to spend a night in Tungnath, which might not be that comfortable but worth trying. With 180 degree view of the Himalayas it makes it one of the best views I have witnessed. If you can make it before the sunrise, trust me you will not forget the moment easily. You cannot stay here so you have to consider starting very early from Chopta or a relaxing one from Tungnath.
Deoria tal – small yet enchanting and full of reflections of the blues & greens with the massive mountains in the background can make you speechless. You can either trek for 14 km to Deoria tal from Chopta or you can drive (12 km) to to a nearby village “Sari” and trek for 2-3 km from there.
Sari – facing the valley is a modest village which provides an opportunity to enrich your cultural experience in the region. Structure of life there gets us closer to understand the diversity our nation offers to us. Traditional style of construction, what local eat, their language, the food can keep you involved for days there.
Apart from the signature places, you can always explore the area; it offers beautiful and wild trails through the forests and pleasing views from different points.
