Rohini Bugyal is an interconnecting route between Deoriyatal and Chopta...it will be around 6-7 hours trek...so you start from Sari to Deoriatal (2 Hours) and then reach Chopta via Rohini Bugyal from Deoriatal (6-7 hours)...and then Chopta to Tunganath will be 4-5 hours...and another hour for Chandrashila from Tunganath.

Trek through Rohini Bugyal is not difficult as such. Yes you will have to take a porter/guide as you will have to camp at Deoriatal.

Easier is stay at Ukhimath and then attempt Deoriatal on one day from Sari, go back to Ukhimath. And on next day go to Chopta and then attempt Tunganath/Chandrashila. That ways you can skip Rohini Bugyal stretch of the trek

Hi Joy,
The route's pretty easy. I did it solo without any guides, porters, etc. You can take a printed google map version of the area, but that's all what's is required. Just start off early in the morning(not too early though, as few locals mentioned that bears roam around at early dawn - probably they were joking - but I didn't take any chances), so you can camp/stay at Tungnath (in order to reach Chandrashila at sunrise). The trail will be pretty much visible all along the way. You can also track the marks of the mules and trekkers on the trail, if you want to be pretty sure. Basically, you have to walk in one direction after Deoria Tal. Just keep a note of your walking direction. The 90 degree right turn is also pretty obvious, where you turn to reach Tungnath. After the right turn, you walk a few kilometers and find a left turn to make it directly to Tungnath. If you miss the turn, no problem, as you will land up at the roadhead near Chopta. From there, you can climb upto Tungnath like everybody else.

this is precisely what I was wondering--if there is a way to reach Tungnath directly through the route. Thanks for sharing the info and boosting my morale!

PS: just one question, considering Deoriatal to Chopta is 6-7 hours trek, how long does it take to reach Tungnath from Deoriatal directly through Rohini Bugiyal?

@Joy Depending on your speed you can complete it in 4-7 hours. I did it in about 5-6 hours, including the time I spent bathing in the stream that flows down the valley.

Looks like a doable plan. However, my wife is a little suspicious. We will keep this option open, and will decide after reaching Deoriatal.

thank you.
