The Chandratal Lake Trek :

Duration: 11 Days

Grade: Moderate

Day 1: We drove to the village of Preeni from where we begin our climb towards the picturesque village of Setan . Camp outside the village.

Day 2: We begin early and crossing a few streams we go on a boulder-strewn path towards our next campsite. We camp on an extensive meadow.

Day 3: Campsite to Bhalu Ka Ghera: Today the climb is steep and can be tiring as we head towards the base of the Hampta Pass and reach our campsite on a sandy strip beside a mountain stream. Camp overnight.

Day 4: Over Hampta Pass (4270 metres) - Chattru. The climb to the pass is again a steep one and once on the pass you get spectacular views of the northern mountain peaks of Lahaul and Spiti. We reach the tiny roadside camp of Chattru by late evening.

Day 5: Chattru Chotta Dara: Today the trek is along the Spiti highway. Our next stop is another roadside settlement of Chotta Dara. There is a seasonal teashop here and an old Rest house. Camp nearby.

Day 6: Chotta Dara Batal: Today we continue along the road and walking along the Chandra River reach the next tiny settlement and make shift Dhabha and tea stall at Batal. Camp near the makeshift stall on an extensive grassy plain on the banks of the Chandra river.

Day 7: Batal Chandertal: A little ahead of the tea stall is a rough track leading north. While the highway continues to the Kunzum Pass and on to Spiti, this road leads to the beautiful mountain lake. Far below you can see the silvery Chandra River meandering towards Lahaul. We reach the lake by early evening. Camp on the shores of this mesmerising lake.

Day 8: Rest day at Chandertal . There are great views of towering barren mountains all round this crystal clear water body. Camp on the shores.

Day 9: Chandertal Tokpoyongma: We leave early toady as we have to ford an icy mountain stream which can become dangerously high later in the day. Our expert mountain guide leads the way and after crossing the torrent we walk foe about an hour before setting up camp.

Day 10: Tokpoyongma Tokpogongma: This is another icy torrent which we cross early and then walk up the barren valley. There are numerous mountain streams flowing down these barren hillsides and we reach camp by afternoon.

Day 11: Trek to Baralacha La (4950 metres). The walk is through a high-altitude desert and the surrounding mou8ntains offer spectacular views. We reach the meadows around Baralacha by afternoon from where a jeep takes us on to Keylong the district headquarters of Lahaul. We have an option to either spend the night here in a hotel or continue our drive to Manali.
