Chopta

Before I start again on my Goa series, let me share some pictures from Chopta. One of my acquaintance had been there recently & these pictures belong to him. This place is again in my wish list and I know I will accomplish it one day. 🙂

Chandrashilla: Legend has it that Goddess Chandrama (Moon) had spent a long time here in penance. It is a 360-degree view from the top, and to the north, a great section of the Himalayas are visible. Chaukambha, Banderpoonch, Kedarnath, Nandadevi, Sudarshan Panat, Gangotri, Neelkanth and several other peaks are visible.

Situated on the Gopeshwar – Ukhimath road, about 40 kms. from Gopeshwar at an altitude of about 2900 mts., Chopta is one of the most picturesque places in the entire Garhwal region. It provides a breathtaking view of the Himalayan ranges and surrounding areas. P.W.D. guest house is available at Dogalbhita 8 kms. from Chopta.

Rest of the information when I go there. 😀

  1. Another place to visit! When flying to Vietnam (via Bangkok) we were over northern India with a splendid view of the Himalayas. I wished to just sit and look at it, but the other passengers were screaming and told me to close the curtains… they wanted to sleep – no daylight!

  2. I notice that you’ve never been to South of Vindhya’s to explore …..
    Do make a schedule to a trip to Kerala, Kanyakumari, Vizag etc ….

  3. very fine view…!! Infact almost entire Garwal and Kumaon region is beautiful….be it chopta/Mukteswar/Kosani/Binsar….

    Thanks for sharing…..!
    Tk care ~
