Its a nice place close to Dalhousie with an exit on the left enroute to Khajiar. This road leads down to the valley where you can find this beautiful lake.

Loved the boating at the place and few km got to see a beautiful temple known as Bhallai Mata temple. It was really pretty and the location was also good.

We were short on time so didn't go to the boating side of the lake and just saw it from above which is an ok view....but hot as it's on a lower elevation. Maybe the boating experience enhances the place

We reach this lake at around 6 pm and the boating office has closed. So we spend some time there, had a tea and took some photographs. Please visit early in day.

Chamera lake has one of the best scenic view. Boating here is too good but prices are too high. You can hire a taxi for Chamera lake from Dalhousie.

Huge dam. Lake is spread out wide. But dirty water. Dam must be blocking all waste stuff and keeping it lakeside which has led to accumulation of all kinds of garbage over the years. Boat ride is there but pricey. Average experience overall.
