Beas Kund Or Chandratal Lake - Review
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.

Beas Kund Or Chandratal Lake, Manali Reviews
Its an enchanting lake with a panoramic landscape.Time stands still at this natural marvel. "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations" The saying is apt for the place. Don't forget to carry water and some energy food (I carried raisins)coz even though the trek is short but due to high altitude it gets tough..
A very beautiful place with panoramic view. Snow covered pick. Blue fresh water. Peace in every where. Motorable road.
Beautiful lake.. A must go place for nature lovers. Temperatures is always down here.. A very good place for star watching.. Sky looks very close from here and very clear too
Its definitely a stunning lake. We were there in peak summer and when we reached our camp, it was so hot that we decided to trek to the lake in shorts.. BIG MISTAKE. Our driver dropped up to the point from where the hike to the lake starts. Its quite a hike but definitely doable. Took us about 45 mins to reach the lake and it was awesome. The entire landscape is just stunning. We were happily clicking pics and soaking it all in. We watched the sun go down. I mean who would wanna miss the subset at such an amazing place? We should have! The moment the sun went down, the temperature drastically dropped. Although it was a touch hike, which should have generated warmth, we were still shivering and repenting our decision to dress scantily. We somehow managed to reach back safely. We realized we were not the only ones who made this mistake. So posting here for the benefit of all, please learn from our mistake :-)
One of the awesome lake I have seen in my life... It was too beautiful to spend time in that place...
