Tungnath Temple, Chopta Overview

The Panch Kedar are the five shrines of Lord Shiva, established by the Shaivite sect. The highest one of them, the Tungnath Temple, is located at a literally breathtaking elevation of 3860 meters.

Some believe that for a shrine that is most important of the Panch Kedars, the trek should be extremely demanding and exhausting, but the government authorities have made the path clear and smooth for all the devotees. The only challenge of the 3.5 km long trek remains the sudden steepness of the slope, that is tiring and takes a toll on one's lungs and keep the frail hearted out of the game. Still, for those who are assured of their health, the trek is a very fulfilling experience.
