DAY 01:

Our trek begins from the  town of Rishikesh. Morning, after breakfast we drive for a good 7-8  hours to reach Sari. The drive, though long is beautiful as we drive along the  Ganga, Alaknanda and Mandakani rivers. Enroute we stop at Devprayag which is another important Hindu site, known for the confluence of  two distinct colored Bhagirathi and Alaknanada Rivers, which then flows down as  the Ganga. Once in Sari, we trek for a short while to the beautiful Himalayan  Lake, Deorital. This trek does not take long but is steep, often giving a good  view of the surrounding villages.

While you trek up, we  carry your gear ahead of you so that you find your camps ready at the bank of  the lake. You can take the day off to explore the area around and then retire  to your cozy tents after a good, wholesome dinner.


DAY 02:

The mornings in the Himalayas are one to look  forward to. Wake up early to catch the first rays of the sun on the snow covered Himalayas. The orangish hue of the mountains is one to keep as memory in  your cameras! Once we have fed you with an energy giving breakfast, we set  forth to Chopta. This is a gradual trek and takes 5-6 hours to complete, which  however pass relatively quickly as you pass through the dense, cool forests and  beautiful alpine meadows dotted with wild flowers. Arrive at Chopta and camp at  outskirts. Meals and Overnight stay in Tents. 


DAY 03:

Our target today is to  reach the summit of Chandrashilla in time so that we can catch the panoramic  view of the high Himalayan peaks in good light.  The trek is mostly a gradual ascent through  the maroonish-reddish dwarf rhododendron bushes. At the summit, take in a good  look at the prominent peaks surrounding you from all directions. Almost every  prominent peak of the Garhwal Himalayas can be spotted from here. To one side  is Nanda Devi (7817Mtrs-the highest peak of Indian Himalayas), the other side  is Kedarnath, Trishul, Banderpoonch etc. Each peak offers a spectacular view and  finds its mention in the myths and folk tales of the plains below. Explore the  area and then trace your steps back to the camp at Chopta. This downward  journey is far easier and we finish it in good time to camp again at Chopta.


DAY 04:

Morning after breakfast  board our waiting vehicle and drive back to Rishikesh. Tour terminates upon  arrival in Rishikesh.
