I took this snap from Chopta, Uttarakhand.

Clear sky with clear mountain range.

Chopta is a picturesque hamlet which is still unexplored by travelers. Chopta is the commencement point of the trek to Tungnath 3rd Kedar. Another 1.5 km trek from Tungnath leads to Chandrashila (4000mts above sea level) which offers a splendid view of snow clad Himalayan peaks including Nanda Devi, Trishul and Chaukhamba stretched widely

Chopta itself offers splendid views of the imposing Himalayan range including Trishul, Nanda Devi and Chaukhamba. It is located at an elevation of 2680mts above sea level. Chopta is rich in varied flora and fauna. Chopta is situated amidst thick forest of pine, deodar and rhododendrons.

Chopta is easily accessible as it is located on the road connecting Gopeshwar with Guptkashi. Wake up with cool salubrious breeze and chirping of birds in Chopta. The morning view from Chopta is invigorating when the crimson rays of sun kisses the snow laden Himalayas. Carry light woolens in summers and heavy woolens in winters while planning a visit to Chopta. Hotel in Chopta provides standard accommodation facilities at affordable prices.

Chopta, Tungnath and Chandrashila are covered with snow during winters. If you visit the place during Dec-Feb, you may witness snowfall and enjoy trekking in snow.

Hi Puskkar,
a lovely view, but I wish it was larger.

Namaste Pushkar ji,

The panoramic landscape you captured in this shot are always enjoyable to look at and definitely they are a feast for the eyes but all that charm goes away if the picture is dominated by something else which originally is not a part of the picture - In this case, your name logo is overpowering the picture, and unfortunately, it is bigger than the snow-capped mountains itself.
Really a pity!!

The picture is well taken and light is beautifully caught. The sky couldn't be better I feel and contrasts are superb too.


You could post the same picture with its Large Version (LP) by following the undermentioned instructions:

"How do I post a large-sized panoramic photo?" - To post a large-sized panoramic photo, you must first upload a panoramic photo with at least a 2.5:1 ratio. Then you may click the 'Large Post' link in your Manage section next to that photo and begin the process to post the large-sized photo. The longest side must be greater than 800 pixels and may not exceed 4000 pixels.


Hope you keep it in mind before you post your next picture on TL.

Kind regards,

nice,its look beautifil
