Chandratal Trail

Known as the Moon Lake too, this is one which is at a height of 4300 metres and is also the origin of the Chandra River. The lake is about kilometres from Kunzum Pass and a popular place among devotees. This is because this is said to be the same place from where Lord Indra had picked up Yudhishthira, the eldest of the Pandavas to take him on a journey to heaven. The picturesque sceneries and beauty of this place is mind blowing. The waters of this lake are deep blue and is surrounded by lush green grass. What is even better is that the waters are extremely clean unlike other general lakes that we see. The peaks surrounding this lake are even of around 3000 metres to 6300 metres and are namely the Moulkila and Chandrabhaga. You can come here from most other places of Himachal Pradesh even for some adventure camping. This was also known to be the halting area of traders once upon a time when they stopped here before moving ahead to Kunzum and Sarchu.
