Along with the Chardham Yatra 2016, devotees are also paying homage other significant temples in Uttarakhand like Tungnath. According to a report about 2700 believers have already performed pilgrimage to Tungnath (3rd Kedar) since the opening of the portals of the shrine.
A large number of people are gathering not only in Tungnath temple but closely located Dugalbitta in Chopta as well. Seeing a good footfall of devotees have elated the local traders. A resident of Chopta compared it to last years and said that 2016 beckons a better Yatra year as many people are thronging Tungnath. Another local trader, Bhagwant Singh also expressed happiness on a decent turnout of people and said that this will benefit the local trade as well.
