Overview

The Chopta-Chandrashila-Tungnath Trek is a temple of Mahadev built on the highest peak in the world. Whose height is 3,690 meters. Chandrashila Peak is just behind Tungnath Temple. Tungnath Temple is considered to be one of the Panch Kedar temples. After reaching Tungnath temple there is a 1km trek to Chandrashila Chopta peak which is a bit difficult. In the Chopta Chandrashila Tungnath trek, you see many beautiful Bugyals and peaks. Which is like this. Nanda Devi, Trisul, Kedar Peak, Bandarpoonch, and Chaukhamba Peak. The Chopta is around 7 hours (243 km) from Dehradun. It is 6 hours (205 km) journey from Rishikesh. While passing through Badrinath road, we get to see the panoramic view. The name of that place is the confluence of the gods in Devprayag. There is a confluence of two rivers here. Which we know by the name of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. Later I came to be known as Gang River. From The Devprayag we will go along the Alaknanda river to Srinagar road where we will find Dhari Devi temple a little further. Which is very famous. The distance between Chopta Tungnath from Devprayag is close to 88 km. Rudraprayag is one of the Panch Prayag of Alaknanda River, the point of confluence of rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini. Kedarnath is just 50 km from Rudraprayag. While passing through the beautiful mountains, we also get to see the beautiful scene of Agastyamuni. Moving forward, we see two ways. Out of which, one way goes to Guptkashi and the other way goes to Ukhimath. So we are going to Ukhimath. From here we can see Chadrashila peak. Chopta is just a 1 hour (29km) drive from Ukhimath and in between, we also have Deoria Tal Trek. The trek point from Chopta is about 5 km away. While passing through here, it seemed as if the views were there. As if you have come to heaven.

Itinerary

Ukhimath is the winter seat of Kedarnath, as well as the winter home of the priest who presides over his worship. After the Kedarnath temple closes for the winter, a movable image of Kedarnath is brought in procession to Ukhimath, where it resides until the Kedarnath temple reopens in late April or early May.

This picture shows the outer gateway to the temple complex, which is not only brightly painted and decorated, but two full stories tall (the wall also serves as the back wall of buildings inside). The stones piled at the lower left were for some sort of construction project, which was in full swing when I visited (since summer is the "slow" season ritually speaking, it made sense for the place to be torn up them. And the nearby buildings are residential since a young girl is visible at the upper right.
