After a tiring ride, we arrived at Parasol camp near Chandratal lake. Due to a misunderstanding in the organisation of our trip, we did not have a booking here. Still, Mr. Bishan Thakur was kind enough to provide his most comfortable tent, tea and biscuits and lots of kindness and friendliness, without even asking us to pre-pay the accomodation! We... More

A long, hard day riding the Lahaul Valley was more than rewarded when I pitched up at the camp run by Mr Bishan Thakur. The perfect hosts, Bishan and his team were helpful, informative and caring. The original and best camp, within easy trekking distance of Chandertal Lake, caters for all budgets but does not compromise on comfort, attention to... More

Past the impossibly narrow Kunzum La Pass just short of Batal, you turn to the 12.5 km jeepable road to Chandratal. As soon as you take this turn it appears that you are now on a road that has fallen off the map. In total wilderness the crescent shaped impossibly beautiful blue green lake leaves you short of words to... More

I stayed at Parasol Camps Chandertaal on my way to Keylong. It was a chance meeting with Bishen Lal on the way there that prompted me to put up at his camp. The camp is located a short walk from the reserve area. What impressed me most was the sense of responsible tourism, that is seen not just in Mr.Bishan... More

We had a stay at the Parasol campsite during our spiti trip. We wanted to be near the chadrataal lake and experience camping in himalayas. This place is perfect for that, the tents were large, clean and cozy. The host, Mr Bishan and his team made our stay very comfortable. They tell you entertaining stories, cook delicious food and add... More

A camp amidst arguably the best location in the Greater Himalayas. Chandratal is a gem of a high altitude glacial lake located a 8 hour drive from the town of Manali or a 5 hour drive from the town of Kaza located int he Spiti valley. Though there are a couple of other camps pitched in the vicinity of the... More

A hotel in Kaza with Cozy rooms and even better view of gigantic snow clad mountains from its balcony. The hotel provides the majestic panaromic view of the mountains. The entrepreneur of the Hotel, Mr Bhishan welcomed us enthusiastically with a delicious Veg and garlic soup to help cope with the extreme cold weather and altitude sickness. Since we were... More

It is surrounded by beautiful meadows, shallow streams and high mountains. The Camp itself is very wide and open. It has about 12-14 tents. Each tent has... More

This is definitely a beautiful place to stay if you love hiking in the mountains. The staff is great, the food they prepare for you is delicious and when you get out of your tent in the morning when it's still fresh but the sun comes up behind the mountains it feels like you can handle the whole world.
