CHANDRASHILA SUMMIT WINTER EXPEDITION (Jan. to March)
Though this is a high altitude moderate trek in summers but turns in extremely strenuous trek in winters due to heavy snowfall on trek and all around Chopta valley, Uttarakhand where the trek located. This is the only one short trek in Garhwal Himalaya which gifts an opportunity to climb over 10 feet of snow on alpine slopes of Chopta valley in winters. In snow fall season Chandrashila expedition becomes extremely exciting and highly challenging due to its snow covered path and steep ascending which pull our feet back. Snow advents in Dec and lasts up to March end in the entire valley. We need extra enthusiasm and well physical fitness to climb up to Chandrashila summit in Jan and Feb but it becomes easier in March. Due to extremely adverse climatic and trekking conditions in snow season, this expedition is recommended for youngsters and hot blooded old age people only. The trek takes you in deep seclusion of middle Himalaya just close to Greater Himalaya. A glimpse of any rare wildlife species like Musk deer, Snow leopard, Monal, Thar etc, during the expedition doubles the excitement.
We offer proper knowledge, adequate assistance and essential snow trekking gears to make your trekking expedition absolutely safe and immensely recreational.
