The Chandrataal is a beautiful lake in Himachal Pradesh. Its name literally stands for Moon Lake. Standing behind it is an imposing mountain range.

The source of this lake is the groundwater underneath as you cannot see any source of water over the ground. This unique feature does set the lake apart but its height at more than 4000 feet makes this quite surprising. The water reserves are so vast that the lake also has an outlet and can provide crystal clear water to the areas nearby through the Chandra River.

The most striking feature is the color of the lake that changes often due to the reflection of the mountains surrounding it on it. This makes the sight of the lake a truly remarkable experience that is certainly not worth missing.

While it used to be a wonderful haunt for traders passing through the mountainous region, today it is a haven for campers and adventurers.

  • This place is heaven in India. Having crystal clear Air , no single dust or pollution particle. Pure Air only but much cool too. You will really enjoy here.

  • Visiting this place is a MUST. It's cold , windy, around 14100 ft above sea level. It's a holy lake so try not to pollute it . You can stay near the lake in tents which costs around 1000 INR per person including food .

  • A camper and trekker's paradise, Chandratal Lake is often referred to as one of the most beautiful lakes located at an altitude of about 4300 m in the mighty Himalayas. u may experience breathlessness as oxygen levels are quite low at this altitude. camping is not allowed adjacent to the lake but around 2-3 km before the lake ,there are several camp sites which provides food as well as cozy accommodation. be extra careful in the monsoons as there is huge sludge formed on the roads( roads are unpaved from rohtang pass onwards), if stuck it would be very difficult to get your vehicle out of sludge. overall a great peaceful place.

  • Nature's untouched beauty, calm green water.
