Chopta, Ukhimath

4.7
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Rudraprayag District
Explore the wilderness of Chopta and get enthralled in the mesmerizing atmosphere of natural tranquility. Enjoy this haven from the bustle of typical tourist attractions as you watch the scenic beauty of many peaks around the valley. Go on a trekking adventure towards Chandrashila peak and enjoy 360 degrees of views upon the Himalayas, or visit Tungnath temple, the highest temple dedicated to Lord Shiva at an elevation of 3680m (12073 ft). Neither one of the trails are considered very difficult. Abundant restaurants and lodgings on the top, but mind that they don’t operate in winter months.

  • A picturesque place. Starting point of religious and unimaginably beautiful Tungnath-Chandrashilla trek. Shopkeepers are extremely cunning and charge you highly abnormal price for rooms, food and other items. Food was okay in taste. I advice you to have some good connection with local authority at higher level. 4 stars only for beauty.
  • Beautiful Bugiyal(meadow) for photography, picnic spot with less crowd and natural landscape for walk with friends or with date.
  • This is the correct location of Chopta Tourist Place. Another one near Rudra Prayag is wrong.
  • THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE YOU START TREKKING TO TUNGNATH AND CHANDRASHIL.. AND ALSO YOU CAN STAY HERE IN HOTEL AND CAMPING... Good place for camping..
  • Gateway to Chandrashila Tunganath trek. Its a small village with few accommodation and eatery places.
