Tungnath (12,070) is the third of the Panch Kedar--five Himalayan temples identified with Shiva, of which Kedarnath is the most important.

 All five can  still be reached only on foot, and all of these temples are high enough that they close in the winter, when they are snowbound.

The footpath to Tungnath begins at the little town of Chopta, and is a steep walk, climbing over 3000 feet in only 2.5 miles.  This photo shows the gateway at the beginning of the path,

 with the Tungnath name painted on the crest of the arch--seemingly promising that it is close by.  As at Kedarnath, one can hire a horse to ride up to the temple.
