About Chopta

This stunning hill station is considered to be amongst the best mountainside getaways and one of the most beautiful places to visit in Uttarakhand. Located in the Garhwal region, it is often referred to as the ‘Mini Switzerland of India’ for its scenic beauty.

This largely unexplored destination is the perfect destination for not only nature lovers but also for those who love adventures that come with trekking, rock climbing, camping, and spotting rare Himalayan wildlife. 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. Explore treks like Chandrashila, Devaria Tal, Rohini Bugyal, etc. Kanchula Korak Musk Deer Sanctuary for spotting the elusive musk deer, Himalayan Griffon, snow leopards, Himalayan pit viper, etc.

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.
