    The starting milestone of this trekking journey took us to the Deoria Tal, where we totally enjoyed and relished the charming beauty of Deoria Tal Lake while standing at 2438 m. This view is from the Chaukhamba Peak; this is where we captured the stunning and gorgeous views of the Deoria Tal Lake and its pristine, clear, and mirror-like waters. The trek trail leading to Chopta from here is completely enveloped in the lush, posh green meadows. This is such a beautiful sight to see. From there we reached the Tungnath temple, the highest shrine of Shiva in the world.

    Deoria Tal and Chandrashila Trek with Chopta is a short trek up to the most spellbinding peaks in Garhwal district. This trek is something that is truly enjoyable. After few kms of walk to Tungnath, we proceeded forward with the trek. This is my favourite Himalayan trek because you get to see the beauty of the sunset in the most inexplicable way possible here. This is sheer brilliance and stunning thing ever in the world.

    The Deoria Tal and Chandrashila Trek that I had gone to with my club members was truly majestic. The Himalayas has always been very close to my heart. From lush green meadows and verdant slopes to snow topped peaks, the jorney from Deoria Tal to Chandrashila has it all rolled up its sleeves. I was amazed at the variety that this place packs. The moss green trails which we took to go the distance actually make you think you are in an adventure movie. I am not a bird lover but I was thrilled to see so many birds of different origins nestle in this region. This is definitely worth a revisit!

    Exploring the place was truly amazing, the walked experience was really nice with the breathtaking views of the place, the time run so fast that we didn't know that we spend there 5-days and 4-nights. Truly amazing would recommend others.

    It was my first trekking experience ever and I enjoyed it a lot. Only thing which can be improve is food quality which was average. Best was camping in nowhere and bonfire in the night. I had seen lot of different varieties of birds on this. My special thanks to our trek guide who guided us very patiently through out the trek as most us novice trekkers.
