What is special about Chopta - Tungnath trek over other treks?

Chopta - Tungnath trek is one of the best, it is a short trek and more in the following. l You get to see nature in all its glory as the entire trek is n the evergreen Kedar wildlife sanctuary. l You get to see rhododendron trees throughout if you are trekking in the summer months, and snow in the winters with maple leaves falling all over the place, just like what you would experience in Switzerland. l This is one of the rare treks which is more rewarding to the Lord Shiva believers as it gives them both the joys, the trek, and also a temple visit. l Campsites, forest stays all food stalls and even skiing when in winters, make Chopta the most ideal tourist destination in the Hills. It offers way too many options in a very small quaint location. We at Himalayan Crew have years of experience in making our client's trip ever so filling and joyful.
