Amidst the peaks of high rise mountains that personify might and strength, lies the Chopta valley. Uncommercialised, peaceful Chopta valley is a small unconventional tourist spot in Uttarakhand. Chopta valley lies in the Garhwal Himalayas, surrounded by lofty mountain ranges, beautiful meadows, and a breathtaking view. The wide white expanse of mountains gives a great panoramic view from the Chopta valley and make you forget all the stress from your day to day life.
The valley offers a lot of things for the tourists and that’s why it is a very famous tourist spot. You can trek to the close by peaks, sit for hours facing the huge mountains and get soaked in the vastness, camp in the open air and the naturally lit sky at night, enjoy watching the birds and wildlife as you sip piping hot tea, or sing and dance around a bonfire. Anything that you do here is sure to mesmerise you and leave you with memories of a lifetime.
When in Chopta, the must do trek is the one that leads to the Deoria Tal. When you climb up, you get a spectacular view of the lake that lies beneath the Chaukhamba peak. The clean and clear lake is surrounded by lush green dense forests. The camping experience besides this lake is incomparable. The calmness you get by the blue waters and beneath a thousand stars is an experience of a lifetime.
Chopta valley gives you a feeling of divinity and it is evident at the glorious Tungnath temple. The Tunganath temple, at the height of 3680 m, is the highest Shiva temple in the world. The temple which is said to be constructed over a thousand years ago is a marvel. There are many holy stories associated with it. The grandeur and the mystery with this temple will leave you perplexed. With every breath, you will be soothed and recharged with new energy.
Above the Tungnath temple is the Chandrashila peak which is 4090 m above the sea level. After Deoria Tal, the trek to Chandrashila is a major attraction. The view from the peak from the peak is stunning. The cloud-kissing mountain, the blue skies, the dense green forests, and cold and fresh breeze take you far away from everyday hustle and stress.
The trekking experience at Chopta is a very rewarding experience for everyone. The trek is not very difficult and thus the amateur trekker can do it too. The trekking experience is thrilling and the path that takes to the top of the peaks is pleasing. As you walk to closer to these peaks from the Chopta valley, you feel closer to the mother nature.
Chopta valley is a great place to visit during any time of the year. The summer here is warm, pleasant and sunny, the winter comes with a great view and makes this place very pleasant with the greenery, and the winters are chilly and perfect to sit beside the bonfire. Chopta is a magical place and perfect for trekkers and nature lovers. Find your solace in the enchanting Chopta valley.
