About This Trip

As Sam Cummings famously said, “The higher you climb on the mountain, the harder the wind blows.” Hear the mountains speak as we trek our way to Chandrashila or the ‘Moon Rock’, the highest altitude covered during this journey. Climb up this peak at an altitude of 3850 mts and enjoy the 360 degree panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas, while making memories that will last forever. Wipe the dust off your backpack, wrap up all that you need, and venture out with us to reach the new heights. Like literally!

While our journey begins from Dun Valley, the trekking bit starts from Sari village, a picturesque village located above Rudraprayag, in the lap of Uttarakhand. From here we get set to hike and cross a few steep gradients to reach Deoriatal. Just a walk of 2 kms and all the serenity will open up paths towards the beautiful mountain lake, Deorital with the larger than life view of Chaukhamba peaks in the background (a mountain massif in the Gangotri group of Garhwal Himalayas, considered to be the highest peak in the group). Enjoy the sounds of nature and the uninterrupted views around this mystical lake which was once created by the Pandavas to quench their thirst. As the sun sets and we approach towards the night full of starry skies, we now settle to camp near the lake sight here.

With lots more to offer on our 4 days journey, on day two, post welcoming the sun, we drive through the meadows and reach our base camp for the Tungnath and Chandrashila trek. At 2600 mts, our campsite at Baniyakund offers the tranquil sights and sounds that we long for in our everyday busy city life. This place is truly a paradise for bird watchers and nature enthusiasts!!! We stay here in the cottages, relax our muscles and let the sounds of pure nature and the mountains warm us up for what’s coming next Amigos! For what day 3 has in store for us. Breathe in the fresh, early morning mountain breeze and get ready for the day; as today we trek the much awaited trail, not to mention, full of eye catching and sense capturing views to reach more than 1300 years old Tungnath temple complex, the highest shrine of Lord Shiva that stands tall surrounded by the mountains. Built by the Pandavas, seeking for the pardon and blessings of Shiva the devta resides here from the month of April till November, while in winters; with great pomp and show god’s Pratima is shifted to the temple in Makkumath. Whilst, do not forget, to delve into more such folklores about this place that the locals have to tell. Making our way forward, we again ascend to capture the remaining 400 mts and reach our destination, the Chandrashila peak. Going by the legends, there is much to this place! Here lord ‘Rama’ meditated after defeating Demon-king Ravana. Adding on to this one, there is one more saga that suggests moon-god ‘Chandra’ came here to spend his time in penance. The peace, the views and the stillness of surroundings with just the winds having a conversation- just the thought of it overwhelms us….Let’s make this thought real, before we head towards another 9-5 day at the office.
