"My experience with the trek is just above the sky... I enjoyed a lot... Especially it's an beginners trek. We need to have basic fitness level to go for the trek. What's most best thing about the trek is our guides Mr. Surrender Rana, Mr.Ramesh who call themselves as Pahad ka Bacha and the team who filled us with delicious food and lots of care. They are so helpful through out the trek. Now coming to the trek everyday you will get to see different landscapes. The mightiness of the Majestic Himalayas is something which filled my heart with unbelievable experience. For people who would love to experience the nature with a decent amount of trek this is perfect. This trek could be a ignition start for the next treks we would like to go. Do go with the complete trek essentials what will be mentioned the list. For a good trekker the most important things are perfect shoes and proper clothing, this will make the trek easy. Experience the Majestic Himalayas, The secrets, wilderness, calm and blissfulness mountains give you!!.."

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.
