FAQs on Tungnath

Can you suggest an itinerary for Tungnath?

Tungnath is a small village which is approachable only via trekking of almost 3.5 km from Chopta. Begin your trip with an early morning visit to Tungnath Temple with a magnificent view of the sunrise. Make sure you have eaten a hearty breakfast in the morning and also carried some food along with you. A further trek of 1.5 km will take you to the shrine of Chandrashila. However, the trail is a bit risky so decide carefully. Now your next stop after this should be the beautiful village of Chopta. Break for lunch there and rest for a while to rejuvenate your body. Next either you can go to Deoria Tal and the lake and beautiful scenery or head on to Kanchula Korak Musk Deer Sanctuary. With this end your trip at the hotel with a warm dinner.
