It is one of the few places to offer views of 41 best-known Himalayan peaks like Trishul, Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, etc. The forested beauty of the place is further accentuated by emerald-green meadows and the mysticism that comes with 1000-year-old worship places and legends.
Highlight of the place: The 1000-year-old Tungnath Temple, one of the highest Shiva Temples in the world including other ancient temples like Kalimath, Ukhimath, and Omkar Ratneshwar Mahadev.

Best time to visit: Summer (March-June) is the best time to visit Chopta to escape the heat of the plains. Travellers who love wintersports must-visit during winters (November-March) when the place is shrouded in thick snow. The monsoon season (July-August) brings landslides, and its best to check with the locals before travelling.
