The Lake of the Moon

We decided to break our 12 hour jeep ride between Manali and Kaza and pop in to visit Chandratal lake. Chandratal translates into “Lake of the Moon” and is set 4300m high in the Himalayan region of Spiti. Having parked, we walked for a few hundred yards while fighting for breath in the oxygen poor air and as we reached a ridge, this stunning vista unfolded before us. I have never experienced such clear air and colour giving light and we sat and gazed until our driver called us away.

My partner Carol and I set off on a 400 day long trip around the Indian Subcontinent. Travelling mainly by local bus it proved to be an extraordinary adventure as we rubbed shoulders with many interesting people and visited fascinating places. We travelled through Sri Lanka, much off India and into Nepal and wrote the book Cardamom Days upon which my blog is based. We wanted the trip to be extraordinary and extraordinary is what it proved to be.

    This picture is incredibly beautiful! The colours are just unreal and enhance the rugged landscape. I can very well imagine how you did not want to leave and had to be called by the driver.
