Chopta Tourism

Chopta, very simply put, is a trekker cum explorer's heaven. If you aren't an adrenaline junkie but inclined towards pushing your limits, visit the valley of Chopta for a life altering experience and expand the boundaries of your physical horizon.

Chopta is possibly the only valley town in Uttarakhand, that has minor human alteration, and a good place for intermediate trekkers to brush up their skills while exploring locally renowned tourist spots, like the Tungnath Temple and the Deoria Tal, which are both accessible after a well guided trek. Talking about the rare opportunities that Chopta offers, what cannot be missed is the Kanchula Korak Musk Deer Sanctuary, which attracts wildlife enthusiasts who are into exploring rare Himalayan animal species. Chopta slopes on softly, among alpine and grassy meadows, and in this valley of abstract but absolute natural beauty, one does actually stand at any hilltop and spin around as a practice of spotting the multitude of peaks visible.

- One should be carrying anti travel sickness tablets if a steep terrain doesn't suit them.- Carry a lot of woolens when travelling in winters.- Carry dry foodstuff with you for longer journeys around the town.

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.
