Chandratal Camping
Chandratal Camping
Duration 4 nights 5 days

This is one of the most exciting camping in Himachal Pradesh. The highlight of camping is the stay near Chandratal (Moon Lake), considered to be source of Chandra River. You get magnificent views of glacier and peaks of Mulkila & C.B. ranges from here. The Chandra River joins Bhaga River few kilometers down the valley and forms Chenab that flows into Pakistan. Crystal clear water shadows the massive glaciers. Incredibly changing colors with the passage of day, peaceful and sublime, the lake is simply enchanting.
