Trekking and Camping in Garhwal Himalayas

To begin with, just the name of the mighty Himalayas gives travelers a certain chill let alone camping and trekking along the beautiful valleys. Deoriatal Lake does have mesmerizing surroundings where you could see forests all around. It also offers reflective sights of the great peak of Chaukhamba and the peak of Neelkanth in the serene waters of the lake. In the Garhwal Himalayas, one among the most popular treks is Chandrashila Trek that could be undertaken throughout the year in the Garhwal Himalayas and certainly not during December through January where there would be heavy snowing.

The Chandrashila peak is located over Tungnath Temple and is the highest when it comes to Himalayan temples. It’s quite a short hike, but an arduous one the farther you hike from the temple. The peak offers splendid views of Nanda Devi, Kedar Peak, Trishul as well as Chaukhamba peaks.
