After the deadly bike ride till chandrataal when we reach parasol camps we felt utterly relaxed...but the way Bishan Thakur and his staff welcomed us and made us comfortable was just beyond our imagination....more than the words can say they provided the best service they could offer to us. A place you must stay if you plan to visit chandrataal,... More

If you are visiting chandratal lake then staying in parasol camp overnight will surely add a different dimension to the overall experience of the place. The camp is well maintained. The tents are warm and cozy and the exclusive ones come with attached toilets. The blankets are warm n comfortable for the freezing -10degree at night. The food they serve... More

We had opted for the luxury tents with attached toilets (a western seat and a tap and a washbasin without a tap). There are no hotels near the beautiful Chandratal lakes but there are very many camps 2.5km away from the lake (the govt has taken... More

If you are looking to get away from the hustle & bustle of city life, are geared up for some serious star-gazing, watching birds soar across clear blue skies, or even looking for your pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, then Spiti Valley is your best bet.
