About Chopta-Chandrashila

Chandrashila is summit of the Tungnath. It literally means “Moon Rock”. It is located at a height of about 4,000 metres above sea level. This peak provides views of the Himalayas, including Nandadevi, Trisul, Kedar Peak, Bandarpunch and Chaukhamba peaks. It is considered one of the best family treks in Uttarakhand. It is an ideal trek to start if you are a beginner,  offering not much difficulty, and it gives spectacular views of the mountain ranges.

One of the highlights of the trek is ‘Tungnath Temple’.  It is the highest Shiva temple standing at an altitude of 12000 ft. After the climb to the top, you can enjoy the views, and stroll around and the best part about this trek is camping in the open meadows of the valleys. You can enjoy the views of the snow-capped mountains while sipping your hot tea.

During the trek, toilet tents will be set up along each campsite. A toilet tent will have a deep pit, where one can answer nature’s call. There will be a mound of soil and a shovel to cover it up. These are dry toilets, where you’ll have to use toilet paper. This is the most hygienic and convenient way to answer nature’s call in the wild. Please use plain toilet paper and refrain from using wet wipes since these are not biodegradable.

During day time sunlight is good and the weather is clear but you have to dress in layers at the night. The temperature will be between 10 to -5 degrees.
When it gets really cold can I consume alcohol?
Alcohol is dangerous in extreme cold, especially at high altitudes. Contrary to what people believe, alcohol does not make you warmer. Instead, it opens your pores, making your body colder. Moreover, it dehydrates you very quickly. Hence consumption of alcohol is absolutely prohibited on all Nomad Adventures treks. Anyone found with alcohol is quickly removed from the trek. Smoking, similarly, is not allowed on Nomad Adventures treks.
What all do I need to carry on the trek?

You don’t need special snowshoes. A good waterproof trekking shoe is sufficient for the trek. When there is snow, we provide micro spikes and gaiters.
