To go there , I did the following.

- Bangalore->Delhi ( By Flight )

- Delhi->Haridwar ( By Shatabdi )

- Hired a car to go to Chopta ( Starting point for Tunganath)

Started from Haridwar and did a night stay in Ukhimath at a GMVN hotel. Next morning went to Chopta. Trekked up to Tunganath. Stayed the night there in a shack called Ganesh Hotel. Next morning trekked to Chandrashila and then back to Chopta.Took the car back to Ukhimath, stayed the night there at GMVN. Started back in the morning to Haridwar to catch the Delhi Shatabdi

- Shatabdi back to Delhi
- Flight back to Bangalore :)

Hope this helps.
