Many are of the opinion that the height of Chandrashila peak is around 13000 feet. But GPS tells a different story
Shiv temple of Tunganath looked divine bathed in rays of the morning sun on the Chandrashila peak. A Griffon vulture encircles the summit every now and then. And a spectacular 360 degrees view of Garhwal and Kumaon mountains can be seen from the summit of Chandrashila. The Exploratory Team of Indiahikes had set off for this summit at 5 am in April 2014 from Bhrujgali camp. And by 8 am they were at the top.
Sunrise from this spot is the best you will get to see in Himalayas. And a walk past the Tunganath temple will reveal some majestic mountains of Ukttrakhand like Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nandaghunti, Kamet, Dunagiri, Chaukhamba, Kedardome, Thalaysagar, Gangotri ranges and Jahanukut . There are even chances that you spot a Griffon vulture encircling the summit as you stand there.
Quite a few say that Chandrashila stands tall at around 13000 feet. But a look at the GPS reveals something else. Take a look at this video of Chandrashila summit to find out what is the actual height of Chandrashila peak.
