Tunganath & Chopta Valley


Tunganath peacefully adorned on the Chandranath Parvat is the highest Shiva temple in the world and the highest Panch Kedar temple of Uttarakhand. 

It is the third (Tritiya Kedar) in the pecking order of the Panch Kedars. Tunganath is perched at an elevation of 3, 680 metres above sea level.

Magnificent in its architecture and artistic structure, Tunganath is considered to be more than 1000 years old. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, idols of Goddess Parvati and other gods can be seen in the vicinity. This sacred temple was discovered by Adi Shankaracharya.

Chopta Valley

Chopta is a picturesque hamlet which is still unexplored by travellers.

Wake up with cool salubrious breeze and chirping of birds in Chopta which is a far cry from the blaring horns of the cities and other hill stations. Morning view from Chopta is invigorating when the crimson rays of sun kisses the snow-laden Himalayas.

This hushed abode is enclosed by the dwindling pines, deodars, rhododendrons and other conifers that can be found in this region, which makes Chopta rich in flora and fauna.
