The present Chandratal status is closed from both the Kaza and Manali sides. The road was closed earlier this month after heavy snowfalls started to occur early. The campsites too are all wrapped up now and there is no place to stay near Chandratal. A trip to the beautiful lake is only possible next year in May or June, depending on when the road opens.
To organize your trip to Chandratal Lake, book a taxi, rent a bike, or get the best accommodation rates, you can contact Kunal @ 9910402252.

Kaza to Chandratal Road Status
The road from Kaza to Chandratal gets open sometime in the month of May, around the 10th of it. The date is actually a little sooner than the entire Manali Kaza stretch gets open.
The route from the Kaza side becomes accessible and a day trip can easily be made. There will however be no campsites available and you will have to return to Kaza by evening. On the plus side, there is a high chance that you will find the lake half-frozen, like in the picture above.
Keep in mind though that the campsites at the lake will only be available by early June. The campsites remain available until the 10th of October and after that, there is no accommodation available anymore.
Though the road remains open a little longer after that and you can still make a day visit to the lake, you will not be able to stay there overnight.
Manali to Chandratal Road Status
The road from Manali to Chandratal only gets open only after the snow from Rohtang and Kunzum Pass has been removed completely. This only happens towards the end of May historically. To be on the safer side, assume the date of opening of the road as 20th May and not sooner than that.
Kunzum Pass Status
The status of Kunzum Pass is closed right now and it will only open after May 15th. There is a chance that it may even open sooner if it does not snow too much. But we will only find that out next year after the winter season has passed.
Rohtang Pass Status
The status of Rohtang Pass right now is closed and it will open sometime in the month of May after BRO is able to clear the snow completely from both Manali and Koksar sides.
When does Chandratal Lake Open?
Chandratal Lake is declared open in the first week of June after the snow from Kunzum Pass and Chandratal Road is cleared. If there was not too much snow and BRO was able to complete the work faster, Chandratal may open by late May as well.
