DEORIYATAL → Tungnath → Chandrashilla → Chopta


Deoriatal is in itself a gorgeous trek. The forest trails and the summit climb are unmatched! If you add to this the soft snow and vast, white landscapes, you will never want to leave this piece of heaven!

Deoria Tal is a lake located about 2.5 km on an uphill trek from the villages of Sari, on the Ukhimath-Chopta road in Uttarakhand. At an altitude of about 2438 meters, it has heavily wooded, lush green surroundings with snow-covered mountains (Chaukhamba is one of them) in the backdrop.

Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world and is the highest of the five Panch Kedar temples located in the mountain range of Tunganath in Rudraprayag district, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Chandrashila is located at a height of about 4,000 metres (13,000 ft) above sea level, the summit of the Tungnath . It literally means "Moon Rock. This peak provides a vibrant view of Himalayas, especially Trisul, Kedar Dome,Nandadevi ,Bandarpunch and Chaukhamba peaks.

What to Take


Closed cell foam mat/bed roll – even if planning to stay in a hut, take one of these. Strap on to the bottom of your pack and it provides a great seat when you want to have a rest and in an emergency these are extremely useful for getting an injured person off the cold ground, they can also be used for immobilising joints eg broken arms and legs. Therma-rests work very well too. A mat ideally needs to be more than 1m long to be effective.

Walking stick/pole – not only does a stick or pole make walking easier, especially if someone has a sprained ankle, they are invaluable if you suddenly have to erect an emergency shelter or for making splints for fractures. Make sure you have at least two poles in your party. Sticks work well, but if you are above the bushline you aren’t going to find one!

Sharp pocket knife – not only makes chopping your salami and cheese easier, but vital for wilderness first aid e.g. making make-shift bandages out of clothing, cutting bed rolls up etc.

Spare clothes – consider having a couple of spare polypro layers and hat that live in your pack for emergencies, never know when you might need them

Bandages/dressings – are great things to have in your first aid kit, but in an emergency where someone has a major bleed you will be using anything you can get your hands on, cotton is much more absorbent than synthetics so consider having an old tee shirt or small towel for this possibility, you will find other uses for it too.

Spare torch batteries – if your flash light has an on-button on top, you need to beware that it doesn't switch on by accident.
