All about the Deoriatal Chandrashilla Trek.
Chandrashilla summit is a rock face above and beyond the temple of Tungnath, the highest Shiva temple in the world. The trail is tricky with its abrupt climbs and sudden changes in the terrain. The snow filled hills are majestic and leave you in awe, the quietness around along with surreal beauty brings everyone to a standstill. The trail is surrounded by an imposing forest of oak, deodar, and rhododendron that shadow a rich bed of flowering plants. This under-rated, untouched beauty provides a 360-degree view of some of the most astounding views of the Garhwal Himalayas. This trek is great for people who want to start trekking in the Himalayas. It’s also a visual delight which attracts not only trekkers but also photographers around the world to capture the beauty.
