About


Chopta, very simply put, is a trekker's cum explorer's heaven. If you aren't an adrenaline junkie but are inclined towards pushing your limits, visit the valley of Chopta for a life-altering experience and expand the boundaries of your physical horizon.

Chopta is possibly the only valley town in Uttarakhand, that has minor human alteration, and is a good place for intermediate trekkers to brush up on their skills while exploring locally renowned tourist spots, like the Tungnath Temple and the Deoria Tal, which are both accessible after a well-guided trek. Talking about the rare opportunities that Chopta offers, what cannot be missed is the Kanchula Korak Musk Deer Sanctuary, which attracts wildlife enthusiasts who are into exploring rare Himalayan animal species.

Chopta slopes on softly, among alpine and grassy meadows, and in this valley of abstract but absolute natural beauty, one does actually stand at any hilltop and spin around as a practice of spotting the multitude of peaks visible.

Let us walk the terrains on our Chopta Tugnath Trek!
