Chopta Tourism

Chopta, a small hamlet located in Uttarakhand, is a trekker's heaven. The base camp of treks like Tugnanath, Deoria Tal and Chandrashila, Chopta is an ideal destination for intermediate trekkers to go on a guided trek and brush up their skills.

The third temple of Panch Kedar is located in Tugnanath, around 3.5 km away from Chopta. Camping in the open grassy meadows of Chopta that slopes on softly, among alpine, pine, deodar and rhododendron trees is something that you will experience only in Chopta. The snow-covered peaks of Trishul, Nanda Devi and Chaukhambha dominates the view in Chopta.

Restaurants and Local Food in Chopta

You'll be disappointed if you are out looking for formal and standalone eating out joints in Chopta. But basic regional cuisine is available throughout the city in the hotel and/or guesthouse you choose to stay in.
Breakfast and lunch meals are available throughout the city at all joints, since they have a lighter calorie value and the terrain does not all support car rides around with a heavy stomach. But the food aspect of the trip is very pocket friendly, considering the town is small and moderately tourist friendly.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Chopta has a raw beauty with almost no human alteration. Naturally beautiful and starting point of two famous treks - Tungnath Mandir and Chandrashilla. It offers a splendid view of many snow covered peaks.

What's Not So Great?

Chopta can be very cold and chilly. It can rain anytime and if you are on a trek and do not have a guide you can get lost.

For Whom?

The place is meant for people who are looking for naturally beautiful places that have no interference of mankind. Young people looking for adventure and exploring the unexplored areas will be pleased to be here. This place is not for the elderly with joints problem. City dwellers like people from Delhi, Noida or Rajasthan will find this place amazing.
