Situated at approx, 4270m, the crescent shaped bluish green lake has its own charm. It's one of the bigger alpine lakes of this region (around Manali).

Snuggled in between the ChandraBhaga range and the barren mountainscape, Chandratal is at the source of Chandra river and is fed by meltwaters from the Chandra glacier. From here one gets a beautiful unobstructed view of the peaks of the Lahaul range, Mulkila peak (6517m), Minar (6172m), Talagiri (6279m), Tara Pahar (6227m) to name a few.
