Having spent a long day traversing the rugged, mountain roads of Spiti Valley, evening found us on the shores of the Chandratal Lake.

Situated at a height of 4250 metres above sea level, this lake remains frozen during the winter months. Summer sees it in myriad shades of blue, and sometimes green.

Tired to our bones, the walk round the circumference of the moon-shaped Chandratal Lake, around 5 kilometres, left us feeling closer to nature and our inner selves. We finally collapsed by its banks, watching the waves gently play with the wind as the last rays of the sun drenched everything in its path before it settled down for the night.
