Chandra Taal Lake is also known as Chandertaal. It is one of the most attractive places in India for backpackers to go for camping and trekking. Chandra Taal means Moon Lake. This beautiful and calm lake is situated in pleasing Spiti valley at an altitude of 4300 meters. It offers breath taking views for sightseeing and a challenging terrain for trekking. Although you can drive up to a distance of 1 km from lake, the nearby areas offer the perfect place for setting up campsites and to enjoy short or long treks. Lake is an unimaginable blue that changes hues as the sun goes through its paces overhead. Surrounded by bare, stony hills, the natural tranquility of the scene is further intensified by the utter lack of any kind of living organism within the lake.
