Stay at the Parasol Camp at Chandratal is must do for any biker doing the Shimla-Spiti-Manali route. The camp is very well run, the owner BSNL is very sincere and hospitable. His understanding of the terrain and the business is good enough to enhance the experience. The Tal is beautiful and everything about this place is memorable.
