I'd read a lot about the lake, & had scoured endless photos on the Internet but the real thing still took my breath away. Literally & metaphorically! The walk to get to the lake was excruciating for me, given that I was having a medicine reaction. But the sights are pretty & when you see the lake, you almost forget... More

So I always prefer to carry my own tent. N spend night over there with my guitar. At chandertal there is no risk of wild... More

We went to this lake as part of our Hampta Pass trek in Aug 2016. We went via TATA SUMO. The road towards the lake is very treacherous but the view it offers will be beyond your imagination. In monsoon time, all the waterfalls will burst into view. When the sumo reaches the destination and the moment you got out... More

Chandertal/Chandratal Lake can be named amongst the most beautiful landscapes, having superbly clean and bluish water surrounded of huge mountains from all directions. Its very quite and peaceful location, you would have a feel of chilled winds over here. You can go and seat for hours over here looking around its beauty and enjoy the calm and peace. Additionally people... More
