Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world and is the highest of the five Panch Kedar temples located in the mountain range of Tunganath in Rudraprayag district, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The Tunganath is indelibly linked to the origin of the Panch Kedar temples built by the Pandavas.Tungnath is at the top of the ridge dividing the waters of the Mandakini River (raising from Kedarnath) from those of the Alaknanda River (raising above Badrinath). The Tungnath peak on this ridge is the source of three springs, which form the Akashkamini River. The temple lies about 2 km (1.2 mi) below the Chandrashila Peak (4,000 m (13,123 ft)). Tungnath offers something to every one, be it a hardcore devotee or an ardent nature lover or adventurous lots. A mountain in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, Tungnath is an enchanting location where the nature is fabulously adorned with pictorial vistas. Renowned as one of the Panch Kedars, this rocky terrain boasts of the obeisance of Shiva, the destroyer lord. Though the trekking route is covered with brawny stones, the marvelous view of the highly embellished meandering pastures makes ones trek an awe inspiring one. As the trek progresses the meadows would make their way to pink, white and mauve Rhododendrons.
