Chandrashila Snow Trek Summit

Send us a query >>

Trek through deep snow, through snow laden thick oak forests and across snow fields. The route is an easy trek in summer time, but in winter it can be a challenge. The temperatures will be sub zero. You should have basic fitness, willingness to walk and a strong will power to fight all odds of nature.

Tungnath - Chandrashila trip is planned on a full fledged expedition scale, and professional mountaineering gear is provided to make this a safe and memorable experience. All participants would need to trek with backpacks weighing around 15 kgs, and in snow boots and associated mountaineering gear.

Do not join, if you are unwilling to bear biting cold weather or cannot do some real roughing out. In a nutshell - This is not a pleasure trip!... its a summit.

Itinerary
Day 0:
Departure from Delhi by overnight train to Haridwar
Day 1:
Drive to Sari Village, Trek to Deoriya Tal Lake ( 2400 Mt ).
Very beautiful view of Chaukhamba peak can be seen from here. The lake is small and round, on the top of a ridge, besides a forest.
Day 2:
Deoriya Tal to Bana Gher ( Thach ).
The trek goes through thick forest. The ground will be laden with deep snow, and would need effort and grit to cover the required distance.
Day 3:
Bana Gher - Tikar Khal - Gaddi Camp.
Jungle walk, with lot of snow. Possibility to see a stream which can be frozen or have a frozen surface. This would be a tiring day.
Day 4:
Gaddi Camp - Tunganth ( 3680 Mt )
The trek ascends above the tree line, and very beautiful Himalayan scenery to behold. The camp would be established overlooking the entire Chopta valley, which is also called the Switzerland of India.
Day 5:
Tungnath - Chandrashila ( 3810 Mt )- Tungnath.
This would appear like a near climb. Negotiating a steep gulley right in the beginning, and thereafter a continuous climb to reach the peak of Chandrashila which offers a 360 degree of view of Garhwal Himalayas.
Day 6:
Tungnath - Chopta road head.
The walk down will be almost through out downhill. We will walk till the road head where the transport can reach us. Drive to Rishikesh. Catch overnight train from Haridwar.
