Welcome to IndiaMike Bushra!!! Yes..it is 100% correct place to inquire..
Yes, you can visit Chopta-Tungnath after VOF..as it is okay about timing..about public transport same are available from Joshimath to Rudraprayag to Chopta..about timing you will have to confirm.Expenses are approx..400-600 INR from Govind Ghat to Chopta....by public transport i.e. Shared Jeep..

Enjoy Travel..!!!

Monsoon time trekking is no different at VOF or Tungnath, same risks and precautions apply. From Govindnath, come to Gopeshwar, there will be buses as well as shared cabs, and from Gopeshwar, take any vehicle going towards Chopta-Ukhimath side.

You can come to Chamoli too first as it will require no waiting at Govindghat. Ask around for any vehicle to Chopta, if not, go to Gopeshwar and from there you will get another ride to Chopta.

Why come to Rudraprayag, that is a long twisted way to reach Chopta.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

How is the possibility to get on the spot accomodations in ukhimath/duggalbhitta/chopta areas during 28 sept-2nd October this year, considering durgapuja/Dusshera.
Is pre-booking essential?

Last year we booked tented accommodation at Deoriatal a day before (from Tungnath). Had no problem. Cottage / Tented accommodations at Bania Kund were also available. We were there during Durgapuja. Hope this helps.

The accommodation in DuggalBittha and Chopta is pretty basic but available. In Ukhimath also the accommodation is basic but better than Chopta. You can always stay in the temple guest house at Ukhimath.

I am planning to visit the temple at Ukhimath on Dussehra this year.

Just back from Chopta, Tunganath, Baniyakund, Chandrasheela Peak.

Stay at Chopta is basic at best. It was quite cold and it was raining during both the days we were there. Climbed to Tunganatha and Chandrasheela Peak in the rain; well laid trail all the way to the top.

Ukhimath is slightly far off from Chopta. We always had to book a cab (not a shared one) to go out of Chopta. Buses did not suit our timings (there was only one)

I would love to come back to Chopta if given a chance. The Bugyals, the weather is absolutely tempting
