The Chopta Chandrashila Trek 2017, which can be journeyed all throughout the year, is considered as one of the best moderate treks in the Indian Himalayan region. If you are looking for chopta tungnath chandrashila Trek Package then your search ends here. Aahvan Adventure is one of the best Adventure Travel Trips providing company in India located in Ahmedabad.

If you are looking for a short getaway amid the Himalayan range, with no civilization around you, the Chandrashila Peak Trek is an ideal trek for you. Set in the Garhwal Himalayas, the trek is in a protected area which means there is minimal civilization and lots and lots of flora and fauna to explore. In the first leg of the trek, we hike up to Deoriatal. This is a beautiful lake at an altitude of 2438 m and has captivating surroundings with forests all around. The Chaukhamba peak feels like it is an arm’s length away and the reflection of the mighty peak in the crystal clear waters of the lake creates a beautiful effect. The story associated with this scenic place is that when the Pandavas were in exile and were hiding from the Kaurava king, Duryodhan, they stopped nearby for a rest. When their mother Kunti felt thirsty, one by one four of her sons went to fetch water from this lake but died, as they could not answer the question put forth to them by the Yaksha Devta who resided here. When the eldest son’s Yudishtra’s turn came, he answered all questions correctly and with the result, the dead brothers also came back to life. Here we will camp by the lakeside and enjoy the star spangled sky in the night.
