Deoriatal-Chandrashila Peak Trek Day 6: Chandrashila Peak

It was D-day today as chandrashila was meant to be conquered today. Everyone woke up at 3 and were raring to go to the peak. The necessary gear including gaitors , ice tractions , etc were packed the previous day itself.

At 3 in the morning, we were woken with tea and we started the trek to the peak at 4.30. The way to chandrashila peak starts from bhujgali or from chopta which is two kms from bhujgali and goes via tugnath temple which is one the highest shiva temples in the world.

The guides were there to help us as the snow and ice made the path slippery in couple of places. Soon we reached the final ascent where we had to wear tractions due to the deep snow. Some of us tried walking in snow but we find it difficult to walk and were slipping and sliding
