Chandra Tal is also known as "Moon Lake" is the source of the Chandra River. It was once a tentative place for traders from Tibet and Ladakh who went to Spiti and the Kullu valley, but today it attracts a large number of adventure enthusiasts from across the world. Located at an altitude of 4300 m, Chandra Tal Lake is just 6 kms away from the Kunzum Pass in Spiti and Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh state of India.
Walking on Chandra Tal trek will offer an ultimate experience similar to the experience of going to the moon. You will pass through two high mountain ranges named Moulkila and Chandrabhaga, which are quite challenging for mountaineers.
