Chopta trek with friends

The trek was nice. First and last day car journey is tiring. But view is beautiful. Arguably the best short trek in Uttarakhand. The owner of the lodge we stayed in at Chopta was so friendly and nice person. We didn't carry raincoat so faced a little glitch on 3rd day while it rained for sometime
