Tour Code: (CLT)

CHANDERTAL TREK

(The Lake of moon)

This is a short but interesting trek and gives the trekker an opportunity to peep the heights of Kullu valley. Typical Himalayan villages and Shephards (Gaddi) are sure to be there to greet you. On reaching the Lake, one touches an altitude of 4800 Mtrs. Patches of snow and the green view of the valley below ensure a good experience.

Day 04 : Chhota Dara – Batal 15 Kms

Batal is situated at the foot of Kunzum pass which provides the main approach to Spiti from Lahaul. The panorama as viewed from the top of the pass is enthralling and inspiring. On the way is Bara Shigri glaciers. Bara meaing big and Shigri meaning glacier in Lahaul dialect. The view of the Shigri stream emerging from beneath a huge iridescent archway of solid ice is a never to be forgotten sight. Behind the archway lies the Shigri glacier climbing up to dizzy height. The glacier is mountainous mass of solid ice, more than a kilometer wide and ex tending over a distance of ten kilometers. Overnight in tents.

Day 07 : Tokpo Yongma – Tokpo Gongma 11 Kms.

Start early morning because most mountain streams are low in the morning. The later part of the day generally makes the stream swell, making crossings almost impossible. After crossing the stream, a six hours walk brings us to another barren camping site surrounded by rocky hills. Overnight in tents.

Day 08 : Tokpo Gongma – Baralacha la (4883 Mtrs.)

Today’s trail takes us through high country strewn with myriad streams flowing through green meadows. Ahead lies the Baralachala pass. Baralacha means summit with cross roads.

Tonight it will be the coldest night during the whole tour. Overnight in tents.

From here there are many different options. One can continue trek till Darcha via Shingola or directly to Darcha. Another option the bus/jeep will pickup you from the Baralachala and will take you to Leh.
