Chandrashila Trek

Trek to Chandrashila summit is one of the popular treks in Uttarakhand due to its relative easiness and accessibility. The summit offers mesmerizing 360 degree view of the Himalayas including peaks like Chaukhamba, Trishul, and Nanda Devi etc. This beautiful trek takes one through verdant meadows, deodar forests and the majestic Tungnath shrine. 

Adventurers trekking to Chandrashila tend to camp in open grounds under the clear night sky. Camping is an amazing experience to have with family and friends when you are surrounded in the lap of nature.

Chandrashila is more of a trek route for the adventurous souls than the tourist folks. Apart from the mesmerizing views of snow capped peaks and abundant natural beauty, there is Tungnath temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is considered highest Shiva shrine in the world. Pilgrims visiting the Char Dham pilgrimage tend to visit Tungnath to offer prayers and seek blessings from Lord Shiva.
