Beautiful historical temple. The trek was fascinating, with mesmerizing views. Early climb is advisable. Attending Bhog ceremony at noon is refreshing. Better to climb down immediately before evening.

Chopta which is called switzerland of India is a great place in Garhwal Hills of Utttarakhand. I have visited this place two times, one while going from Kedarnath to Badrinath and another time when we specifically went for it recently. It is situated at almost 8500 foot above the mean sea level and remains snow bound in winter months....

Tungnath is one of the highest Shiva temples and the the highest of the five Panch Kedar temples. Such a beautiful hike .. mesmerizing and breathtaking. It took us 3 hrs to climb and 1 hr to climb back. The weather is quite unpredictable, so wear layers and definitely keep w a walking stick. If you reach don’t miss on chandrashila, it’s another one hour from there.

The trek to Tunganath temple is a bliss when you get to experience green lawns, snow clad mountains as you climb up. We used the horses as we had kids along. If you are not taking the horses then buy sticks from the starting points. Don't run while climbing as you will be breathless soon.

This was on our way to summit point at Chandrashila.
An exciting trek. A lot to walk. So, need to start early in the morning. If one wants to witness the sunrise, the trek can be started even at 3am.
This tests your stamina and patience.
Nice scenery on the way. Many himalayan peaks will accompany you on the way to top.

I hiked Tungnath Mahadev solo on 23-April-2022 and here are my tips for fellow travelers -
DOs:
1. Start early. Certainly no later than 7am. The weather changes dramatically in the afternoon, especially at Chandrashila.
2. Take a trekking pole or bamboo stick. Sticks are available near the starting gate and cost 10,20 rupees only. Poles/sticks will help you through, particularly if you are not a seasoned trekker.
3. Take a 1 ltr water bottle with you, and some energy bars or chocolate.
4. Take rest every 20-25 mins in the shade.
5. Book hotel near the starting gate. Stay the night before so you can start early the next day.
DON'Ts:
1. Underestimate the trek. Distance is 3.5km to Tungnath and further 1km to Chandrashila. Total distance will be around 10km. If you are a novice or beginner, it will test your stamina.
2. Ride a mule or donkey. Better to walk.
3. Feed any animals during the trek. There are lot of monkeys around who will jump at you when they see you distributing food.
4. Litter the place with your food waste. Keep all waste with you and dispose after you complete the trek.
