  • We went here to take a break from the monotonous metro life and to our surprise we saw something which was beyond our expectation. Valley leading to the holy shrine was all covered in snow and we also witnessed a life snowfall. It was the best nature could have shown us!!!!
  • Its an amazing place for trekking lovers as well as photographers. Tungnath Temple is the highest Lord Shiva Temple is the world located at an altitude of about 4 km above sea level.
  • A beautiful dream. I'm speechless for my entire trek to chopta tungnath I just wanted to soak as much beauty as i could. I'm lucky to feel this nature
  • Everlasting holliness. You feel energised after visiting this place.I wish to come here again and again. Although food rates are high but we have to keep in mind that this is high altitude place.
  • Nice place.. If you are travelling to there than you can also plan for kedarnath and badrinath as well. Must go to chandrshila just 1 km more track from tungnath
