Posted By : Dinkar/ 146 0

A lot of trekkers visit Chandratal from Manali. Though the distance is approximately 140 km, it does not mean that the journey is easy or short. It can easily take about 7-8 hours from Manali to Chandratal. It’s better to depart early in the morning and make sure you reach Chandratal on time. The journey includes a very steep ascent to the famous Rohtang Pass.

 

On the way, you need to tackle heavy traffic going towards the top. This is followed by a gruelling journey on the Gramphoo Batal Pass, and another difficult ascent towards Kunzum Pass. Last but not the least, you need to go through 14 km of dirt road, which is barely enough for a car. Thus, it’s highly recommended to plan your trip under the guidance of experienced professionals.
