Located on the Pathankot-Dalhousie-Chamba road, about an hour away from Dalhousie, the attraction offers both scenic beauty and opportunity for boating etc. We reached the place late in the day, after visiting Khajjiar and Chamba, so had had to be satisfied with a view of the beautiful reservoir. Suggest planning for a half-day trip really enjoying the attraction.

Lake Chamera at Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh is one of the attractions where you can fasten your seat belts and feel the nature touching your soul. Yes, motor boats and speed boats are available.

While it will take a couple of hours to reach the lake from Dalhousie, but the moment you will reach there you will be surprised by its beauty.. Lake is so clean, and all you will see is green and blue water surrounded by mountains. Boat ride there is a must have during the visit of Dalhousie.

chamera lake and dam both are same. the water blocked by dam is called chamera lake and water is very dirty, you can go for boating but its not fun if you are not boating enthusiastic.

Must take a round trip from Delhousie to Khajjiar the little Switzerland of Himachal and Chamera lake. The access roads are good except for some pot holes.
