Tungnath Chandrashilla Summitt
2016 Trekking, Travelling and Photography Andy Rawat

Tungnath – Chandrashila trek is known for its mesmerizing beauty. Tungnath, which is the highest Shiva Temple in the world, located at a height of 3,680 meters. The temple is one of the Panch Kedars and is tucked in the lap of the Chandrashila peak. A short easy trek running parallel to the high Himalayas. Good views all the way, beautiful camping by the great forests. In the early spring the rhododendron forest glow red as the flowers bloom. The views from the Chandrashilla top will stay in one’s memory for really long. It is believed that Tungnath is more than 1000 years old and holds a legend that corroborates some of the incidents depicted in the Mahabharata epic.

Tungnath is around 70 km from Rudraprayag and is reachable from Rishikesh via DevPrayag, Srinagar, Rudraprayag. The summit of the Chandrashilla peak provides a breathtaking 360 degree view. Views, which go far beyond the simple "view of mountains". Chandrashila peak offers panoramic view of Gangotri paks, Chaukhamba and other Himalayan peaks. It is one of the few peaks that can also be climbed in winters.

About the author

Andy Rawat Very passionate about visual design. I'm enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. The point is when I see a sunset, waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, bcoj a little bit I'm out of my brain. And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.
