The Winter Sojourn
Even the 'Gods' have descended down with the priests to a
comfortable place leaving the highest altar of Lord Shiva at (3680mts) in the
Chamoli district of Garhwal to the elements of Nature. Iif you are the devout
and a hardy trekker nothing can stop you from reaching Tungnath temple even in
the thick of winter when it is half hidden in snow. If you push harder you can
reach the summit of Chandrashila (3925mts).
Tungnath is worshiped as the arm or baazu in the panch Kedar tradition along with four other shrines -- Kedarnath, Rudranath, Madhmahehswar and Kalpeshwar represents different parts of Lord Shiva. Tungnath stands under the spectacular summit of Chandrashila and is less frequented by pilgrims and trekkers.
Due to unusual heavy snowfall this season in the Garhwal Himalayas, the trees are still half buried in snow. The beautiful alpine meadows this time around are covered under more than fifteen feet of snow, making it difficult to establish the route to the temple.
Mountain of Moon
An hour of ascent from the temple takes you to the summit of Chandrashila or Mountain of the Moon. Legend has it that Goddess Chandrama (Moon) had spent a long time here in penance. It is a 360-degree view from the top, and to the north, a great section of the Himalayas are visible. Chaukambha, Banderpoonch, Kedarnath, Nandadevi, Sudarshan Panat, Gangotri, Neelkanth and several other peaks are visible if you are lucky and the weather is clear. To the south and further west you can see Chopta and Sari. The winding road from Chopta to Gopeshwar appeared as a road legend on a three-dimensional map from the spectacular summit.
