[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chandertal: This amazing lake was my first trek in 1990 when i was 16 years old. Infact we must have been the first persons to raft in the lake with the help of a dingy boat carried by our Geography teacher Capt. Kailash Nath Zadu.

Chandertal or Lake Of Moon is of exquisite beauty. It is set on large meadows of alwaiss between a lower ridge and the main Kunzum range with an outlet into Chandra River. This can be easily seen in this picture which has been taken from a steep hill next to the lake.

Hi, Ankit.

Beautiful photograph of a beautiful landscape, congratulated.

Kinds regards, Peter.

Ankit, this is one of the finest pictures of Chandratal I have ever seen either on TN or elsewhere. Which camera did you use in 1990? Is this a scan of a print? If it is, it beats the digital gizmos of today hollow.
What a fine composition and what rich colours! The lake looks tilted, but that may be natural in a mountain picture showing the formation of a lake in the glacial moraine.
Thanks for sharing this real beauty.
Wish you a Happy New Year!

Hi Ankit, what a great landscape, very impressive and beautiful. You managed to capture the sense of immense space with very nice curves all through the frame. Thank you!


Wonderful composition and colors make a fantastic landscape here but beware the water will pour out of the lake if kept so rotated! :) Otherwise I love the shot, TFS!

Happy new year to you,

Hi Ankit,
Interesting spot, Chandertal.
Must have been quite an experience your first trekking.

Still me, Ankit,
you surprise me with this wonderful and rare scenery. The clouds play their role in the picturethe wide horizon too. Well done
Best regards

Hi Ankit,
a nice photo of india! It's just a little bit overexposed - clouds are shining too much, but thats the only point of criticism - great shot,
Wish you a Happy New Year,

Hi Ankit

Happy New Year.

I really like the picture. the mountains are stunning and the view fantastic. I have done a workshop for you rotating the picture. Hope you don't mind.


This one is amazingly beautiful and to be able to be one of the first few to raft there or even just simply raft there....tremendous. Great picture.
