tungnath is the best place to visit during summer, you can get the transport facilities from srinagar garhwal , rudraprayag. it is the highest temple of all the panch kedars. tungnath is 30 km from ukhimath.
after reaching chopta you have to go 3.5km on foot to reach the temple of tungnath.
During summer u can easily get accomodation in the guest house of GMVN present in duggalbitta.
