The best part about the Deoriatal, Chandrashila trek is that , we can go to this trek anytime. There is no particular season for this trekking. If you go in the summer and spring you will get a spectacular view of the beautiful pine, deodar forests. The newly grown leave is something you would like to see. In the winters the same forest is covered with snow and the view is mind blowing. It is a perfect place for a weekend getaway and to take a lot of pictures. Tungnath Chandrashila trek is famous for its breathtaking 360-degree view of the Himalayan ranges.

Trekking the himalayas is something the that one should do definitely in their life time. I had gone to the Deoriatal trek with friends , and it proved to be one of the best treks. It is a very good trek for beginners. The climb is smooth. The trek offers you the sparking beauty of the snow peak reflecting the sun rays. The glimpse and the feeling after we got back from the trek is still the same

I am a wanderlust. I love exploring new place and meeting people , knowing about the culture and all. I went for this trip solo. It was not bad at all. The organisation had planned everything for me and made my trek a successful one.
