Located in the Lahaul-Spiti region of the Himalayas, Chandratal Lake is one of the most scenic destinations near Manali. Set at a height of 14,000 feet or 4,250 metres, this mesmerizing spot among the Himalayas lies about 140 km from the beautiful hill station of Manali. Due to the elevation, weather in Chandratal can be freezing cold. Chandratal is also called the Moon Lake, which is the English translation of its name.

 

Every year, hundreds of trekkers and adventure seekers visit Chandratal via Rohtang Pass. Local legends and myths about spotting aliens in the region have made this tourist destination even more popular. Chandratal trek can be long and tiring. Thus, it’s highly recommended to seek experienced professionals to plan your trip.

During the month of August, monsoon season hits the region pretty hard. This often leads to bad road conditions, and makes the journey difficult. Streams of water and landslides only add to your problems.

 

The first half of September is a really good time to visit Chandratal. During this period, weather in Chandratal remains favourable and you don’t come across bad roads or other such problems. From October, temperature starts dropping and locals start closing dhabas and eateries. It’s better to avoid the route during this period. For more information, click here.
