I visited Chopta during winters, I was surprised by the beauty of the place. Chopta and Deoriatal were completely under the snow, everything was white and it was a thrilling experience to trek in such weather. It was an awesome experience.

It was an amazing trek with Hike Brothers. Everything was good- transport, food, tents, guide. Deoriatal and chopta are so beautiful, you feel like never leaving the place. The best part is the view from the summit of Chandrashila. It was amazing. I suggest you must prefer Hike Brothers and do this trek too.

Been to chopta Chandrashila trek with hike brothers recently. This trek is a perfect weekend getaway for Delhiites as you can cover this trek in maximum 3 days. As this was my first Himalayan trek with hike brothers, they managed everything as per the requirement. All the staff and our trek leader was very motivating and cooperative.
Thanks to Hike brothers team for making my first Himalayan trek more memorable.

This was my 3rd Himalayan trek but first one with hike brothers. I really like their way of engaging all the trekkers with different learning activities at the campsite and even on the trek also. This gave lots of valuable memories and learning to me. Thank them for making trek more adventurous and experiential for all the trekkers.
