  • Trip introduction

    Embark on an off-beat, underrated and little known adventure on the Chanernahan Lakes trek. It is a 6 day trek that is moderately difficult. This trek offers a stark contrast of the green meadows and white snowfields, as you trek your way from Janglik to Litham. You will trek to the sacred lakes of Chandernahan on the fourth day, which is the highlight of this trek. You will also get to explore the local culture of the region. Set out on this trek and gaze at the unparallel beauty of Himachal Pradesh.

    The Chandernahan Lakes lie at an altitude of 14,108 feet, at the border of Kinnaur and Shimla. It is a little know destination in Himachal Pradesh. On the trek, you will begin from the green landscape of Janglik village, trek through oak forests, cross the tree line and then trek through vast snow fields. You will also get to see the enormous waterfalls on the trek, along with the immensely beautiful high altitude lakes - all the while being accompanied by snow capped mountains of Himachal Pradesh.
