We went to this lake as part of our Hampta Pass trek in Aug 2016. We went via TATA SUMO. The road towards the lake is very treacherous but the view it offers will be beyond your imagination. In monsoon time, all the waterfalls will burst into view. When the sumo reaches the destination and the moment you got out... More

We visited the beautiful lake during our visit to Spiti with Mahindra Adventure. Very difficult to describe the beauty of mother nature. Its like in the middle of nowhere.

If you are visiting by car then road available from batal, (only from june to october) but you need to walk a bit around 1km as there is barricade beyond which you can not take the vehicle.

Chandertal/Chandratal Lake can be named amongst the most beautiful landscapes, having superbly clean and bluish water surrounded of huge mountains from all directions. Its very quite and peaceful location, you would have a feel of chilled winds over here. You can go and seat for hours over here looking around its beauty and enjoy the calm and peace. Additionally people... More
