Trek To Chandrashila Peak Via Tungnath was one of the good treks that I have ever been on in the past few years. Preiously, there were not these many treks. In the past few years, Indian Travel industry is booming, and there are a lot of new trekking spots. However, one must pick these wisely. Some spots are awesome, while some are just boring. This trek in Uttarakhand is a traveller’s heaven. I had a plenty of plans for my travel and the trek was the highlight of my travel. It has varied sightseeing and trekking options. The state is best to take long vacations to.
