The trek distance is 8 KM, and the trek duration is 3 days. The trek is known for its scenic beauty all season. The trek passes through some beautiful forests and affords excellent views of snow-clad peaks. The trek gives one the opportunity to visit the 1000-year-old Tungnath temple, which is the highest shrine of Lord Shiva in the world. It is believed to have been built by Arjuna himself. Chandrashila is famous for its breathtaking 360-degree view of the Himalayan ranges. It is one of the few peaks that can also be climbed in the winter months. The best time to undertake the Chopta Chandrashila trek is during the months of April to June and September to November when the weather is pleasant and the trails are clear. Avoid monsoon months (July and August) due to the risk of landslides.
