Something Long And Complicated visits Tungnath, India 🇮🇳

I have seen many breathtaking sunrises all over the world, but there is one thing that always comes to mind when I think of one breath – the morning. Sources: 13

The Tungnath Temple is located at 3680 meters above sea level and is a Panch Kedar nestled in the miraculous Rudraprayag Mountains in Uttarakhand. The most beautiful place in Chopta is the Omkar Ratneshwar Mahadev Temple in Deoria Valley. In my case, I have stayed true to the order of the Pancher K Cedar circuit, and this is, I believe, the third best place in India for a visit to the Third Kedars. Although Bijli Mahadesv is one of the lesser known temples of Shiva in India, it is considered the most “beautiful” of all. Sources: 5, 7, 10, 17

It takes another 5-7 hours to reach Chopta by the Haridwar – Rishikesh road, and from Machhodari to this place the temple is accessible from Birla Hospital. If you are planning a trip to Rajasthan, Jaipur, Jodphur or UdaIPur will appear on your itinerary. One thing not to be missed is the trek to the Tungnath Temple, but people travel. Sources: 3, 9, 13

The hill station is also a great place to hike to the Tungnath Temple of Lord Shiva, the third temple of Panch Kedar, which is 3.5 km uphill. The temple also has one of the tallest statues of Shiva, considered the tallest in the world. This massive structure, which rises to 249 feet, attracts thousands of tourists and believers from all over the country and the world. Sources: 10, 15

The most scenic area in Gangtok is Lake Tsongmo, which is surrounded by mountains on all sides. There are many other picturesque places in the area, some of which have not yet been fully explored, such as the Tungnath Valley, Ganga River Valley and Chitwan Valley. Sources: 0, 6, 8

Known as the land of spirituality, it is considered one of the most religious places in Uttarakhand. The site, which houses the highest Shiva temple in the world, is located at an altitude of about 3680 m and is known to be the holiest place in the country. Varanasi, considered the sacred place of Hinduism in India and the birthplace of Shiva himself, is widely regarded as sacred. Gangtok Tungnath Valley, in Uttar Pradesh, India, is also considered by some to be the most famous place for its Hindu temples and temples. Sources: 2, 3

Although it can be difficult to travel there from some of India’s most popular tourist destinations, it has been kept secret for so long. Sources: 13

If you are travelling to southern India, you will probably explore Goa’s beaches and Keralan’s backwaters, but if you live in Delhi or the nearby north of India and plan to visit a popular temple in Uttarakhand, which is located nearby while staying in Chopta, Kalimath is the ideal place to stay. If you want to visit Deoria Valley and explore the nearby Sari villages, you can also visit the Sari Cafe in Buransh. Mussoorie is perhaps one of the best places for a short break for those living in or near Delhi and the nearest northern parts of India. The first option for a short break is a visit to the Deora Valley, and you must not miss the beautiful beaches, scenic views and excellent food and drinks. Sources: 13, 14, 16, 17

Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world, located at an altitude of 3680 m and is one of the Panch Kedar shrines. This temple is known for its unique architecture, designed by the renowned architect and – in – chief of India, Gautam Aditya Bhattacharya. Sources: 11, 17

The arms of Lord Shiva are worshipped in the temple and the remaining part of Lord Shiv is worshipped. The head of Shiva, as well as the arms, legs, head, arms and legs are anchored in this temple, which is worshipped as the arm of Lord Shiva. Sources: 9, 10

When you leave Kedarnath, you can take a trip to the temple of Lord Shiva, the head of Shiva and the arms and legs as well as the body of Lord Shiv. Sources: 12

The pilgrimage to Tunganath can be undertaken by the Panch Kedar Trek, which covers a distance of about four kilometres from Kedarnath to Tungnath and back. The pilgrimage route offers enchanting views with a rich flora and fauna and is easier to manage on foot than others. You start the route by road – with the destination – from the village of Chhattisgarh, about three kilometers from the village of Tundra. The starting point of the hike is the famous “Tung nath Temple,” which can be reached in about two hours with the highest Shiva Temple in the world. After that you walk about four kilometers to another village and then on to the temple of Shiva. Sources: 1, 2, 4, 16

The entire tour can be done in one day, making it ideal for city dwellers in India who want to take a quick detour. The town of Kund in Uttarakhand is the usual starting point, but Dalhousie can be reached by a scenic 75 km road trip. Sources: 0, 8
