Chandrashila Trek

The Chandrashila Trek offers a view that is unmatched. Perhaps the best mountain vistas of our Indian Himalayas can be seen from the peak.


  • The Chandrashila Trek offers a view that is unmatched. Perhaps the best mountain vistas of our Indian Himalayas can be seen from the peak.
  • There is so much to take in that you can’t possibly take it all in, similar to a large feast. The majority of trekkers will never forget the experience.
  •  The Gangotri range of peaks, Mount Thalaysagar, Kedarnath, and the Kedar dome can all be seen from the left of this peak.
  •  Janhukut and Mandani Parbat, just right in front is the majestic Chaukhamba. They average approximately 7,000 metres in height. The Gauri Parbat, Hathi Parbat, and Dunagiri are to the right.
  • Not only are the vistas breath-taking. The trek itself is special in the winter. It’s almost surreal to see the trail winding through the fluffy snow beneath the oak and rhododendron tree canopy.
  •  The DeoriatalLake is snow-covered all around, but Mt Chaukhamba towers over it.
  • In addition to Deoriatal, camping in the snow in BaniyaKund is a treat.

Best time to Trek in Chandrashila

Despite being a high-altitude trek, Chopta Chandrashila or Deoriatal Chandrashilayou can trek roughly 8 to 9 months of the year. Except for July and August, the trek is accessible for 10 months of the year (except the peak rainy season in Uttarakhand).

  • Without the monsoons, DeoriatalChandrashila has four distinct seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn.
  • Every season is unique and beautiful in its own way.

Highlights of Chandrashila Trekking

The trek from Deoriatal to Chandrarashila is simple to moderate. Frankly, Deoriatal-Chandrashila is the most secure of any of our high altitude hikes. It increases in altitude gradually to give your body time to acclimate.

  • On the trek, you have hardly ever encountered any incidences of altitude sickness.
  • Despite this, the hike ascends to a high altitude of 12,083 feet.
  • You can visit the Tugnath temple, which is the highest Shiva temple in the world.
  • As you trek via HarkiPauri, Chopta, and Sari and camp amidst the picturesque Himalayan Mountains and Kedar, Chaukhamba, Nanda Devi, Bandarpunch, as well as the Deoria Tal Lake, you will reach a maximum altitude of 12,083 feet.
  • There is nothing better than re-establishing contact with nature than taking a private guided bird viewing tour.


  • The route to the trek passes through Rishikesh, Sari, and Chopta, and it is lined with vibrant clumps of rhododendron, oak, and pine.
  • You can go bird watching and have picnics by the lake while you’re here.
  • Don’t miss the captivating sight of the golden-breasted eagles from the summit.
  • The Deoriatal-Chandrashila walk features some of the most densely forested routes because it is located right in the middle of the Kedarnath Musk Deer Sanctuary. A large number of birds also accompany the forests.

Travel Advice for the Chandrashila Trek

  • Please be aware that Chandrashila is located at a height of about 4,000 metres if you intend to hike there.
  • Despite the relatively easy nature of the trip, make sure you are physically fit.
  • Chandrashila is livable because it is the summit itself. Even at Chopta, amenities like ATMs and gas stations are not available.
