Also because of the variety of birds, Chopta is slowly becoming a popular destination among birdwatchers. Chopta can be reached easily from the national capital which is approximately 450 kilometers and 162 kilometers from Rishikesh.

The vibe of the entire hamlet is so surreal that it allures even the intermediate trekkers. Chopta is also the commencing point for trekking to Tungnath, the third temple of Panch Kedar, which lies 3.5 kilometers away. The unique placement of Chopta offers panoramic views of Trishul, Nanda Devi, and Chaukhamba peaks.
