The place really justifies the feel of “In the middle of nowhere’. Far from the hassle bustle of the city and good for hiking.. Chandra Tal has a jeep track, which is an adventure in itself and can give the uninitiated a good first taste of what it feels like to be in the upper Himalayas. For trekkers, a 3 hour trek from Kunzum pass right to Chandra Tal is exciting and beautiful and is recommended for naturel lovers.
The lake can be visited from Manali or via Shimla ( both ways one can enter Spiti Valley) in summers.
