Tour Detail

Chandra Taal (meaning the Lake of the Moon), or Chandra Tal, is situated at an altitude of about 4,570 metres (14,994ft) in the Himalayas. Mountains of scree overlook the lake on one side, and a magnificent cirque presents a view on the other. The name of the lake originates from its crescent shape. This is one of the most popular and exciting trek of Lahul and Spiti Valleys. Both the Lakes are famous for their beauty, migratory birds, fish, alpine meadows, glaciers and serene pollution free environment

Suraj Tal or Suraj Tal Lake also called Surya taal, is a sacred body of water, literally means the Lake of the Sun God, and lies just below the Bara-lacha-la pass (4,890m) 8 km in length in the Lahaul and Spiti valley of Himachal Pradesh state in India and is the third highest lake in India, and the 21st-highest in the world. Suraj Tal Lake is the source of Bhaga River which joins the Chandra River downstream at Tandi to form the Chandrabhaga River in Himachal Pradesh territory, and as it enters Jammu and Kashmir it is renamed as the Chenab River. The Bhaga River (a tributary of the Chandrabhaga or Chenab) originates from Surya taal. The other major tributary of the Chandrabhaga, the Chandra originates from the glacier close to the Chander Tal lake in the Spiti district.
