Overview

Uttarakhand is renowned as the “Dev Bhoomi” as in its abode, it holds many pilgrimage sites but apart from its spiritual and religious significance, it also is known for its unparalleled beauty. 

From lush green canopies adorning every nook and corner to majestic Himalayan ranges that overlook the state, Uttarakhand is a charming land that consists of enchanting valleys, sparkling rivers, unexplored trails and so much more. 

It is popular among trekking enthusiasts, backpackers, and even bikers. The reason for that is that Uttarakhand has something to offer for every kind of traveler which is why we take you on a backpacking trip where you get to traverse the hidden gems of Uttarakhand whilst also enjoying the many adventure activities it has to offer. 

In this Rishikesh Chopta backpacking trip, we offer you an experience that is a perfect blend of both adventure and peace. 

In this itinerary for the Uttarakhand tour, we start our trip from the Yoga Capital of India - Rishikesh. The holy city offers both peace and adventure, on one hand, it offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in the divine energy that overflows on the bank of river Ganga while on the other, it offers thrilling activities like rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, cliff jumping, and more.

En route to Rishikesh, we’d be traversing yet another auspicious town of Uttarakhand which is Haridwar where devotees from all over the world come to bathe in the holy river Ganga as it is believed that the pure water of the river washes away all your sins. 

Upon our arrival, we’ll indulge in the most popular adventure activity there is in Rishikesh which is white water rafting in the roaring river Ganga. We’d also indulge in cliff jumping which would surely give you an adrenaline rush and get your heart pumping. 

After a sightseeing tour to Ram Jhula, we’d spend an evening at Triveni Ghat where we’d witness the serene Ganga Aarti and seek blessings as well. 

In this Rishikesh Chopta tour itinerary, we’ll then move on to the next destination which is Chopta, a small region in Uttarakhand adorned with lush green meadows and the majestic Garwhal Himalayas. 

Chopta also serves as the base camp for the Chandrashila and Tungnath Trek. While Chandrashila peak nestled at an altitude of 12,110 ft acts as a vantage point and offers breathtaking views of the Nandadevi, Trisul, Kedar Peak, Bandarpunch, and Chaukhamba peaks, Tungnath, at a staggering height of 12,106 ft, on the other hand, is the Highest Shiva Temple in the World. 

Upon our arrival in Chopta, we’ll start our trek. The entire trail is lined by lush greenery and offers majestic views. The trek is the perfect blend of adventure where you also get to witness the many beautiful shades of nature, all at once. 

Chopta also acts as the gateway to Sari Village which is the base camp for the Deoria Tal Trek. Nestled at an altitude of 7,998 ft, the pristine lake is surrounded by Garwhal Himalayas and is popular for its glass-like surface that mystically reflects the Chaukhamba peaks. 

This Rishikesh Chopta backpacking trip offers the best of both worlds when it comes to the different sides of Uttarakhand which is a hotspot for both spiritual people and the ones who are always seeking adventure in every corner.
