Overnight Trip to Chandra Taal lake with stay at campsite
Situated in the nest made by the Himalayan mountains, here in Spiti you have a small heaven in the form of Chandra Taal lake (Moon lake). Spread over a lavish 4 km area and located at an altitude of 4300 meters, you have a great site for camping, trekking or simply wearing off your stress in nature’s abundance. The camping is usually done a few km away from the lake due to it being ecologically sensitive.
