Tips For Trekking

1. You must carry trekking shoes, winter jackets, sunscreen, water, and regular medicines during the trip to the Chandrashila peak.

2. There is a high chance of slipping on the snow during the journey to the Chandrashila peak, so carry waterproof trekking shoes and you can also carry a stick for extra support during the trek.

3. We were unable to discover any signs of Telephone on the trek to Tungnath and Chandrashilla. Close by Chopta, the telephone signals were available however with a substandard network. There is no issue with the Telephone network on the whole course before Duggalbitta. We had BSNL, Airtel, and Thought associations with us.

4. In spite of the fact that there are a few ATMs on the course too, and we utilized Chandrapuri ATM, which comes after Agustmuni and before Syal Saur. Chandrapuri ATM is the nearest ATM since I surmise there is no ATM present at Ukhimath.

5. Closest Petroleum Siphon is at Kund around 7–8 KMs before Ukhimath. I will recommend that you top-up the fuel either at Srinagar or Rudra Prayag.
