Overview

Deoriatal  Chandrashila Trek Overview

  • This all-season trek is known for its scenic beauty. It passes through some beautiful forests and affords excellent views of the snow clad peaks. The trek gives one the opportunity to visit the 1000-year-old Tungnath temple, which is the highest shrine of Lord Shiva.
  • It is one of the panch-kedars and is believed to have been built by Arjuna himself. Chandrashila is famous for its breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges. It is one of the few peaks that can also be climbed in the winter months.

  • We also visit the picturesque Deoriatal which is famous for mirroring the Chaukhamba peak in its waters. A lake shrouded in legends, it is believed the Devas (Gods) bathed in this lake and hence the name.
  • Some say that it was the place from where the mighty Pandavas of the epic Mahabharata were asked queries by Yaksha. The lake is also believed to be the “Indra Sarovar” referred to in the Puranas by wandering Sadhus.
  • Set within the Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary in Uttarakhand, the Deoriatal Chandrashila trek may be a treat for wildlife lovers. And it’s also an excellent summit climb (12,083 ft) for those that are starting to start trekking within the Himalayas.
  • You see, summit climbs are rewarding, and trudge up a mountain for hours during the wee hours. You reach its highest point just like the rays of the sun lighten the sky. Everything is below you — the clouds, the hills, the small specks of civilization. On a Himalayan trek, you always see mountain ranges within the distance.

  • This is where Deoriatal Chandrashila is special. it’s not a neighborhood of Himalayan ranges that you simply see. You see all the main summits of Western and Eastern Uttarakhand from the summit. By all, we mean all.

Best time to Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek

  • The Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek may be a great trek all year round. But the simplest time to try to to the trek is hands-down, the months of March and April. this is often when you’ll still see snow on the trek, but you’ll also see blossoming Himalayan rhododendrons.

Deoriatal  Chandrashila Trek

  • The next best time to try to to the trek would be within the post-monsoon months of September, October and November. The Deoriatal Chandrashila trek is understood for stunning views of the Garhwal Himalayas, and after monsoon, when the sky is squeaky clean, barren of any mist / clouds, you get the clearest views of those big mountains.
  • Another great time for a snow experience on the Deoriatal Chandrashila trek is that the month of December. this is often the onset of winter, when it just starts snowing. The snow isn’t too thick to dam the trail. It isn’t so thin that it disappears within a couple of days either.

How To Reach Deoriatal Chandrashila Trek

  • The Chandrashila Peak is found just above Chopta at a height of 12,083 ft. Chopta may be a hill station within the Kedarnath Reserve park . You’ll find the situation of the Chandrashila peak here.
  • The Tungnath Temple, one among the famous Panch Kedar temples is additionally located on the climb from Chopta to Chandrashila. In fact, the Chandrashila Peak is simply around 500 ft above the Tungnath Temple.

Exit Point just in case of an Emergency

  • From the primary camp – Deoriatal, retrace your steps back to Sari to exit. If you’ve got moved ahead to Syalmi, come to Sari or Tali village.
  • But if you’ve got moved towards Baniyakund, that itself may be a roadhead. So, exit from Baniyakund.
