The ‘Moon Lake’, as it is popularly called, is the source of the Chandra River that flows through the divine mountains to become River Chenab in Pakistan. Owing to the absolute clarity of the vast skies above, the Chandra Tal changes colours as the day goes by—turning various hues of red, orange, blue and green. Trekkers flock to revel in the scenery, and is undoubtedly among the must-do treks from Delhi. The best months to trek to the Moon Lake is from June till October, and the gradients are moderately-easy.

The Trek To Rathong Glacier In Sikkim is a special, novel, and unique experience that I am excited and happy about sharing with you all. I remember reading about the famous treks in India in a travel blog and places like Gangotri, Kilimanjaro, Rathong were listed. I used to wonder what is so great about this place that most of the magazines gave such rave reviews about. When I saw the images of this place, I realized what a beauty this place indeed is. I since then have this place in my wish list of treks to take. I, however, did not find time or a perfect trek partner to go on this trek with. Finally when I did happen to take this trek, I was spell bound by the beauty of this trek. This place is beyond words – Absolute Brilliance and Class.

The Trek To Rathong Glacier In Sikkim was sheer brilliance. It was very much enjoyable and interesting. We had a fabulous time during the journey as well as in the trek. The weather was good and supportive despite what many call it as pretty cold, I was fine with the weather, Sikkim can get colder than this. The trekking was quite difficult and challenging though. Even for us who were into trekking for 2 years now, it was quite tough. Of course there were few professional trekkers who did do this trek with ease as they were into trekking more frequently and as a serious hobby, and they did share a lot of tips, and shared their tricks for a comfortable and safe trekking and mountaineering experience. I enjoyed the experience. I am so glad. Also, this trek was not that costly and it was in fact very inexpensive and nice. I loved this trek. I so recommend this.

My friends and I took this trek very recently, and it was an awesome experience. We totally loved it. It was not every day we get to see such beautiful lakes and glaciers in a natural set up. We had total fun. I enjoyed the trek completely. This is such a nice and a great experience that everyone should experience at least once in life. This place is quite cold, and without proper winter clothing and high cold endurance, it might get difficult to trek here. But trust me, it's really worth.

Awesome trek: This trek is an amazing experience. It was totally worth it. I loved it totally. One must try to know the beauty of this trek. Else, it is pretty tough to explain in words on how beautiful this trek is or can be. Also, this trek is very inexpensive for the fact that this is a long trek. The only drawback though being the inexplicably high flight charges.
