CHANDRAPURI
ABOUT THE PLACE

From Rudraprayag traveling 25 km along the left bank of Mandakini towards Gauripur is the small town of Chandrapuri – a settlement amid the stillness of forest-covered mountains and gently flowing river Mandakini with the mountain range of Kedarnath guarding the small town. What draws people towards Chandrapuri is its quietude. The pristine environment often filled with the chirping of the birds brings about a heavenly delight in the mind of the solitude seeker. Tourists can spend some time by sitting idle on a boulder with feet dipped into the cold river water and watching the Sun go down behind the mountains. Chandrapuri has good market places and a jeep stand.

HOW TO REACH

From Rudraprayag shared jeeps, buses and private cars run at a regular interval to Chadrapuri.
Otherwise, Chandrapuri can be reached in the buses that run from Haridwar or Rishikesh to Gaurkund.

ACCOMMODATION

Tourist Rest House
Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam.
Tel: (01364) 258207


TRAVEL TIPS The restaurant adjacent to the Nigam’s rest house offers good food. But it needs to be informed beforehand. Besides, there are some small eating joints inside the Chandrapuri village, which is around five minutes walk for the rest house.

• Chandrapuri doesn’t have any private accommodation facility.
• Owing to paucity of accommodation advance booking of the rest house is always a good idea.
