Discover the serene calmness that surround the valley, you might meet shepherds at this high altitude pass who visit the valley to nourish their sheep with the special grass that grows around the area.

Drive to Chandra Tal, a moon shaped alpine lake located at an altitude of 14,100ft. One of the most enchanting lakes in this region, it is here that you’ll fall head over heels in love with the Himalayas. Find yourself become one with nature as the lake’s placid waters throw open a vista of reflections of the enveloping Himalayan peaks.
