My wife and myself are planning to visit Kartikswamy, Deoriyatal, Tunganath in October 2017. I have read numerous informative articles on this topic in Indiamike.
On the basis of those, I have settled on a tentative itinerary.
Day 1: Train to Haridwar
Day 2: Stay at Haridwar
Day 3: Stay at Ukhimath
Day 4: Ukhimath to Sari village. Trek to
Deoriyatal (Where to stay)
Day 5: Deoriyatal to Chopta; Trek to Tunganath;
Stay at Tunganath (Where to stay -
Temple Committee Guest House ?)
Day 6: Start for Chandrashila early in the
morning; Come down to Chopta. Stay in
Day 7: Syalsaur to Kanakchauri; Stay at
Day 8: Start early for trek to Kartikswamy
Temple; Come down and reach
Day 9: Start for Howrah
Now I have some queries.
1. Is there a place to stay in Deoriayal? I have heard about a FRH near the lake. We wont be havivg tents of our own with us. If there is a tent accommodation near the lake, how safe is it and weather proof is it ? Will I have to come back to Sari for night stay?
2.Is there a place to stay in Tunganath?
3. Will we have to take a guide with us to Chandrashila?
4. Is there a chance of feeling breathlessness
in Chandrashila?
5. How is GMVN Syalsaur? I have heard that
Syalsaur is a wonderful place.
6. How far is Kanakchauri village from
7. Will we have to take a guide with us to
Kartikswamy Temple in early morning?
8. Is it possible to come down from Kartikswamy and go directly to Haridwar or is it advisable to stay in somecplace midway?
9. Will we get cars in our route for point to point drop?
10. How will be the weather in October? Will it be too chilly ?
Waiting eagerly for your reply.
Thanks in advance.

In October in the early morning there maybe verglas on the trails. Moreover you need to start at least 1 hour 15 minutes before sunrise. So take someone from Tunganath.

The trails from Kanakchoury to Katrickswami is between forest. Walking alone in the early morning is not a good idea. The last part to the temple, though railings on both side a guide is preferred.

At deoriatal FRH,Reflection resort,Tent (already pitched) are available. Stay at Deoriatal for sunset and sunrise.

At Tunganath temple committee guest house, Kali kambali dhramsala, few dhabas available. You can try Ganesh dhaba for attached bathroom.

You may think about following itinerary.
Kanakchouri(3rd night),Syalsaur(4),Deoriatal (5),Tunganath (6),Baniakund/Chopta (7),Haridwar(8)

@rudra75 - Did you finally undertake the journey? Post your feedback about your journey in short, if possible. How are the road conditions and trek to Kartik Swami temple?
