Tungnath is the abode to the highest temple of Lord Shiva. Tungnath temple is just a 3.5 Km trek from Chopta, which is at an elevation of 2,700 mt. The temple is hard to access in winters due to the heavy snowfall. The altitude of the Tungnath temple is approx. 3,600 mt. As the temple is easy to access you don’t need a guide, except, in winters when the area is covered in snow.

The Tungnath temple is 1000 years old as is depicted by its artistic structure and architecture. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and also has idols of a few other gods like Goddess Parvati. This magnificent temple was discovered by Adi Shankaracharya, and now the priest of Tungnath is a local brahmin from the Makku village.
