It's been nearly 8 years since we stitched together the Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek.
Yet, till date, it baffles us how incredible this trek is.
With its unrivaled summit views, it's a Mecca for mountain lovers.
For forest lovers, it has thriving forests as you walk through the heart of the Kedarnath wildlife sanctuary.
For birders, it is a haven, with hundreds of endemic species.
As a bonus, when you trek here in the spring months of March and April, the mountain flanks are ablaze with crimson, scarlet, and pink rhododendrons (see the video at the 4.30 mark).
Rarely do beginner-friendly treks offer such variety.
Yet there's another side to this trek—a more personal side. It's a trek that we hold very close to our hearts.
And today, I'm showing you a film about this personal side. It's a tribute to Deoriatal-Chandrashila by Indiahikes team members.
I must tell you, we've released several films at Indiahikes, yet, this might have the best visuals so far, especially from the summit. I was left with goosebumps by the end of the film.
I must tell you, we've released several films at Indiahikes, yet, this might have the best visuals so far. Our Trek Leader Shrirang Pujari has captured some terrific shots and our in-house filmmaker, Dhaval Jajal, has stitched the film to perfection. I was left with goosebumps by the end of the film.
It has made me want to visit Deoriatal-Chandrashila a third time!
I would love to hear your thoughts after watching the video. Drop in a comment below.
