3 Best Lake Treks near Manali

Chandratal Trek -

Chandratal literally translates to the ‘Moon Lake’. This is one of the nearest lake treks from Manali. If you are looking for weekend treks, this is one of the best treks to go to. This trekking experience is said to be very similar to walking to the moon. The view of the beautiful snow-capped mountains during the trek is a sight to behold. Earlier trekking was the only option to reach Chandratal. But now, you can also opt to drive a car to the lake.


Bhrigu Lake Trek -

Bhrigu Lake Trek, even though it is a high altitude trek, the trekking can be completed just over a weekend's time. This trek is not like any other high altitude trekking destinations where one needs to trek for the whole week. The treeline, forests and alpine meadows are the stunning natural attractions that you come across during your trek. If you are trekking during the summers, the freshly blooming flowers welcomes you with a special kind of warmth.

Beas Kund Trek is one of the shortest treks near Manali with moderate level difficulty. Beas Kund emerges out of Emerald lake which is hidden in the grasslands of Manali. You can get a full fledged view of the famous peaks from here. The wild flowers, boulders, finest mountain slopes and the peaceful silence - you get it all here.
