Tungnath-Chandrashila- Toppest of all Nath Tungnath
Chopta-Chandrasilla trek is unique in that the peak can be submitted relatively easily in the winter and also acts as a day trek from Chopta via Tungnath in the summer. The summer trek to the peak is a short and pleasant trek and is often extended into a longer trek with an overnight halt at Chopta. The climb in the winter involves scaling and trekking on a rich route of flora and fauna,through meadows full of fresh snow. Relatively difficult, it requires mountaineering experience and requires a certain degree of skill.
