Chandratal is a scenic alpine lake deep in the Himalayan Range. Chandra Tal is also known as "Moon Lake" is the source of the Chandra River. It was once a tentative place for traders from Tibet and Ladakh who went to Spiti and the Kullu valley, but today it attracts number of adventure enthusiasts. The nearest large town near Chandratal is Manali. The easiest but the most costly way to reach is to hire a Tata Sumo from Manali and reach Chandratal. The distance between the two is 140 km. You will pay more than 10K rupees for a private jeep hire. It helps if a few friends are sharing the cost of hiring a jeep. This high altitude trek taking place 14,000ft above sea level can be undertaken all year round.

In the morning, walk along the sparkling Chandra River to reach a point from where the Bara Shigri Glacier is visible. The Chandratal Lake Trek with Hampta Pass, a treasure trove for the ardent as well amateur trekkers, holds the charm and allurement like any other treks in the Himalayas. Although a short trek, the scenic landscape exposes trails that meander through alpine forests, huge rock formations, and remarkably rich vegetation. The nearest large town near Chandratal is Manali.

Andy Rawat Very passionate about visual design. I'm enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. The point is when I see a sunset, waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, bcoj a little bit I'm out of my brain. And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.
