Detailed Itinerary

 

Day 1 : Dehradun to Sari (2,000 m), 7-8 hours' drive  232 km


We start early and drive through the towns of Devprayag and Rudraprayag to reach Sari village. The route follows the river Ganges till Devprayag, the confluence of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. From here, we follow Alaknanda till Rudraprayag, where Alaknanda and Mandakini merge into one. Rudraprayag has been mentioned in the book 'The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag' by the famous big cat hunter Jim Corbett. He managed to hunt down the leopard which had killed about 125 people in the area. The river Mandakini is followed upstream from here. We reach Sari by early evening. Overnight in tents near the village.


Day 2 : Sari to Deoria tal (2,430 m), 2-3 hours' trek : 3 km


On this day, we embark on the trail, up the hill to Deoria Tal. The pretty walk through rhododendrons takes one to the ridge above the town. Deoria Tal is a small lake with two tea shops around it. The views of the mountain ranges from here are fabulous. The Chaukhamba massif gets reflected on the clear water at times.


Day 3 : Deoriatal to Chopta (2,680 m), 7-8 hours' trek: 10 km


Today is a fairly level walk through some beautiful forest and meadows. If you are trekking in the winter months, expect some snow in the shadowy areas. There are two camping options, either camp short of Chopta near a stream, or at the meadows below the shops at Chopta.


Day 4 : Chopta to Tungnath temple (3,680 m) to Chandrashila (3,950 m) and back to Chopta (2,680 m), 7-8 hours' trek 8 km


We start early today. Form the picturesque environs of Chopta, we take the path through the arch leading up to the temple. Tungnath is a short 2 km trek from Chopta. The temple is only visible in the last few hundred metres. We head up past the temple to the peak. Soaking in the beautiful 360-degree views of the Himalayas we begin heading down to Chopta and reach by late afternoon.

 

Day 5 : Chopta to Dehradun, 7 hours' drive: 203 km


On this day, we can visit Omkareshwar temple in Ukhimath. It is the winter abode of the idol of Kedarnath temple. We drive back to Dehradun and reach by early evening.

Weather


Weather remains salubrious and pleasing during summers. Serenity and solitude are at its best during winters at Chopta. The region is blessed with snowfall during winters and the accommodation options also remain few. But you can see the best of Chopta during winters as it looks like mini Switzerland during winters. Winters are freezing.
