Chandra Taal

Chandra Tal meaning the Lake of the Moon and is named so because of its growing shape. The sweet water lake is in all directions 2.5 km spacious. It is the birthplace of Chandra River which unites with Bhaga River to shape Chandrabhaga River. This river later reckons the specification of Chenab. This crystal lucid blue water lake lies in a large grassy plain, which in prehistoric times was a glacier. There is a brownish blotch Samundari pani in the middle of the lake. The Chandra Taal is a famous landing place for trekkers and campers. The water of the Chandra Taal is so clear that stones at taal are easily visible.

As stated in Hindu mythology the Chandra Taal is the spot where Indra the king of gods came down on his chariot to fetch Yudhishthira in his perishable manifestation to heaven. The inhabitants are convinced by that the fairies visit the lake at night. Throughout springtime, the pastures are carpeted with hundreds of kinds of wildflowers.
