It was a 5 day trek to chandrashila summit..I planned the trip 4m Chennai.. reached haridwar railway station via train..4m there it was a ride in the tempo traveller to Himalayan eco-lodge @ Kund in uttarakhand..it was 210 kms..the drive was a pretty scenic one..had a peaceful dinner n sleep there..
Next day started my trek 4m ukhimet town.. it was a 7km trek to reach deoriattal..got hit by snowfall and hailstorm on the way..met a lot of Himalayan kids..I offered them chocolates.. it was pleasing to see smiles on their faces..
Reached the deoriattal campsite by 5 pm..the reflection of chokambha peak on deoriattal lake was a splendid view..it was 5degrees out there..coming 4m Chennai.,I have never experienced less than 30degrees...it was a scary experience 4 me..most of my clothes were wet due to snow fall...would suggest everyone to get a good quality raincoat..
After a scary night @ deoriattal,the next day was all sunny.,had to trek 2km to reach sari village..4M there it was a 3 kms trek to chopta campsite..it was absolute beauty..the day was all sunny n pleasant..had a good sleep there in the tents.. experienced -2degrees.. stargazing @ chopta was an awesome experience...
Next day was the grand trek to reach chandrashila summit which was 13000feet above the sea level..I had to trek for 3kms to reach Tungnath temple ... world's oldest n highest Shiva temple located @ 12000feet.. from there it was 1km trek to reach chandrashila summit..it was quite challenging n steep..i.made it @ the end..
It was an absolute beauty..got a glimpse of trial Meru sumeru chokambha peaks..it was a 360degree view of the MIGHTY HIMALAYAS..
A dream come true for me.. chandrashila summit,a feather in my cap.. :)
