Himachal Pradesh – Chandratal, Kunzum Pass, Kungri, Drive Back to Shimla


I woke up and decided to take a stroll towards the lake again in the morning.

They say best time to visit the lake is morning, may be between 7 to 10 when the calmness, the serenity will touch your heart, you will be absorbed into the perfect tranquility. There is no wind and the famous Chandratal mirror forms, morning visit is a must to this magic lake, see why:

Had the prayer flags been missing, the lake might have gone unnoticed, such a perfect mirror it was:

Day6, 7 and 8:

We just drove through the remaining part of Spiti to Kinnaur to Kalka while taking 2 nights halt at Kalpa and Narkanda before catching the Kalka Mail on 3rd Night at 23:55 hours. It was uneventful long drive, more to avoid the messy and unpredictable Rohtang Pass and here are few snaps when I look back.
