If you are an ardent trekker or an adventurer, you know about the Chandratal lake already and know that it is a paradise. For the ones who don’t know and love exploring the new places, then this lake is one of the most beautiful lakes of the world. This crescent shaped moon’s look alike lake is at a height of 4300 metres in the Himalayas. Camping at the side of this lake is nothing less than a dream. The view of the lake and the Chandra Bhaga mountains making for a great backdrop makes this a perfect place for soaking in the peaceful vibes.
It is in fact a sacred lake whose colour changes from the day to the end of the day from red to orange to blue to emerald green. And breaking the nomadic life and indulging here in this ambiance is the best to enjoy some of the peaceful days of your life. The sun reflects its rays right on the lake and it makes it look crystal clear. This is one of the best spots in the country to be at and to click some gorgeous pictures non-stop from all the angles.
The trek from Manali to Rohtang pass to Lahaul to Chandratal is described below with a short itinerary.
