Kaza to Chandratal Road Status = Closed

The road from Kaza to Chandratal generally gets open every year in the month of May. The date is actually a little sooner than the entire Manali Kaza stretch gets open in this year.

The route from the Kaza side becomes accessible and a day trip can easily be made. There will however be no campsites available and you will have to return to Kaza by evening. On the plus side, there is a high chance that you will find the lake half-frozen, like in the picture above.

Keep in mind though that the campsites at the lake will only be available by early May. The campsites are available until the 10th of the month and after that, there is no accommodation available anymore.

Though the road remains open a little longer after that and you can still make a day visit to the lake, you will not be able to stay there overnight.

The road from Manali to Chandratal only gets open only after the snow from Rohtang and Kunzum Pass has been removed completely. This only happens towards the end of May historically. To be on the safer side, assume the date of opening of the road as 20th May and not sooner than that.

Chandratal lake is not located in the Spiti Valley, rather it is located in the Lahaul Valley. Unguided wanderlust often leads to misinterpretation of geographical facts. It is regarded as one of the hidden gems of Himachal Pradesh and is situated at a vertical elevation of 4300 mt or 14100 feet.

The name ‘Chandratal’ emanates from the love story of “Chandra” the daughter of Moon deity and “Bhaga” the son of Sun god. Chandra River presents the tranquil azure water alongside the route after leaving Manali and after crossing the Rohtang Pass. The source of this river is replenished with the support of melt-water from the nearby glaciers. Bizarre claims circulate in neighboring villages where some residents spotted UFOs around Chandratal. However, the crystal clear lake is a sight to behold, and time seems to slow down when you are around this lake. You can enjoy tip-toeing around the circumference of the lake with your friends or alone. Silence and the enormity of this lake unravels a calm that rejuvenates the day’s exhaust.
