Chandratal Lake


An outstanding lake accessible from Manali

We are giving a special attention to the Chandratal lake because unlike the other lakes in Ladakh it is accessible from the Manali town in Himachal Pradesh.

The lake resting at an altitude of about 4300 m we can't take you there directly from Manali. You will need to spend a night in the Chandra valley before reaching the Chandratal lake.

So our tour to Chandratal from Manali is done in 3 days. You start comfortably from Manali in the morning.
We cross the Rohtang pass to enter the fascinating Lahaul and Spiti district. After descending the pass the other side we continue to the East towards the Kunzum pass.
We stop for the night at an altitude of about 3100 m.
Don't worry our camping equipment is the most comfortable available. You will spend a good night and our staff will take care of everything. Enjoy camping in the wilderness.

On day 2 we continue to the Chandratal lake. We set up the camp and we enjoy a short hike to the lake to observe the colors of the sunset over the make. Second night in camp.

On day 3 we return to Manali.

Don't forget you camera you will have plenty of occasion to take amazing snaps.

The Chandratal lake is also in the program of our classic tour of Lahaul & Spiti.
