Hello Everyone,
I'm planning to travel from Delhi to Chandrashilla. Need some suggestions for the possible options available for travel with the best route.
I would prefer volvo from Delhi to Rishikesh from ISBT (in the evening). From Rishikesh, not sure how to reach Chopta. I guess it would be walk from Chopta to Chandrashilla (trek).

1) Do we have stay options in Chopta. What would be the prices?
2) Travel options - Delhi-Chopta & vice-versa.
3) Average cost for the trip?

I hope it would be safe to travel in september end 2018.

Please suggest.

Thanks in Advance.

Welcome to IM!

It depends on what comfort level you're used to, in your travels. For a comfortable journey, there are shared cabs/ buses from Rishikesh to Rudraprayag. These start at around 4.30 AM (sometimes 4AM, sometimes 5AM) and are frequent till early morning then gradually dries up. Departure point is Rishikesh Bus stand for buses, Natraj chowk for shared jeeps.

From Rudraprayag, you'll get a shared jeep/ bus to Ukhimath. Again, this is frequent in first half of the day, but you'll get something till at-least 6 PM or so, when last bus leaves.

Ukhimath to Chopta shared jeep in second half of the day depends on number of passengers wanting to do the trip. It's a short distance; in the worst case you'll have to book a full cab at few hundred Rs, or wait till next morning.

Stay Options for Chopta: There are several guest-houses - very basic. No need to pre-book, just turn up and choose.

Yes, you'll have to walk from Chopta onwards, or can get a horse-ride. Horses go till Tungnath at-least, not sure about Chandrashila.

Costs: vary a-lot. Cheapest you can do it at perhaps Rs 2500-3000 for a 3-day trip, Rishikesh to Rishikesh.

Why not include Deoria Tal with this? It's a nice place in same area.

Also, you may want to search and read trip reports in IM. All info you would need has been posted tens of times
