For first-timers this trip is a great way to discover the joys of trekking in the Himalayas. Start with an overnight camp along the beautiful Devariyatal lake, trek through lush green forests to Chopta, then climb a pilgrim trail to the famous Tungnath temple. Then if you feel up to it, go for the nearby Chandrashila peak which is the highest point in the area, and enjoy some spectacular 360 degree views with the stunning Kedarnath range to the north. After a short but steep walk across an escarpment which lies behind Sari, we arrive at the beautiful lake of Devariayatal, surrounded by forests, with clear views of the mighty Chaukhamba in the background.
