Photographer's Note

Perfect reflection of snow-clad Himalayan peaks in the pristine waters of Chandratal.

Fairy Tale Lake Chandratal is located in the Lahaul-Spiti region of the Himalayas. Supposedly one of the five most beautiful lakes in the the Himalayas, Chandratal is at an altitude of almost 14500 feet(4500 mts). Its beauty is particularly enhanced on a full moon night. There is a beautiful trek from this region to Surajtal(or Sun Lake) near Baralacha Pass.In the photo, you can see a few trekkers on their way to the tents pitched on the banks of Chandratal.

To reach Chandratal, you have to cross Rohtang La coming from Manali and then proceed left towards Kunzum La. After passing through Chhatru n Chhota Dara, you reach Batal, which is around 150 Kms from Manali n 15 Kms from Chandratal. Although a couple of those 15 Kms is motorable, it is better to start trekking from Batal itself.
