Trekking on Chandra Taal trail will offer an ultimate experience. It passes through two high mountain ranges named Moulkila and Chandrabhaga, which are quite challenging for mountaineers reaching the Moon lake, the source of Chandra River. Enjoy stunning vistas of snow-covered peaks and slopes, lush green meadows and freshwater river Chandra. The trek is rated moderate and starts from Manali.
As per the mythological story it is believed that God Indra picked up Yudhisthir, the eldest of Pandava brothers from this place and the golden chariot of God Indra rested at the place where the lake is located. The color of water of this holy lake keeps changing from reddish to orange to blue to emerald green as the day ends. Spend time exploring the lake located in Ramsar Wetlands.
