Trip Overview

This trip is for the traveler who cannot get enough of one activity and would like to try their hand at different activities which allows them to experience the Himalayas in a very different sort of way. During the trip, you get to Trek, Raft and Cycle through the spectacular Mandakini and Alaknanda valleys.

The trek takes you to Chopta, popularly referred to as the Mini-Switzerland of India because of its undulating green meadows (carpets of snow in winter) and a breathtaking view of the majestic Himalayan peaks against the backdrop of clear blue skies. This is a protected area and hence there are minimal signs of civilization which only adds to the beauty of the place. From here one can trek up to the Tungnath temple which is at a distance of 2.5 kms from Chopta. From Tungnath you can trek up a further 1 km to the Chandrashilla peak. The 180 degrees view of the peaks and the valleys all around makes this trek well worth it.

Another interesting and beautiful trek is the one to the high altitude lake, Deoriatal. This is a beautiful lake at an altitude of 2438m and has captivating surroundings with forests all around. The Chaukhamba peak feels like it is an arm’s length away and the reflection of the mighty peak in the crystal clear waters of the lake creates a beautiful effect.

Later you get to ride a cycle through the trails that are all around in the forests that surround the lodge. This is relatively relaxing cycling trip with sections of flat, uphill and downhill trails. Wrap up your trip with an exciting rafting trip on the lower Alaknanda where you would raft through some exciting Class 1 and 2 rapids.
