From the greetings of the local staff to the Glass rooms, Nomads's cottage is a heaven in disguise. Even at an altitude of more than 13000 feet, Palzor and Guru Ji manage the place really efficiently. The Glass rooms are a must to stay in, if you want to sleep to the stars and wa

Losar is the coldest village in Himachal Pradesh. We stayed there for a night and got the experience of a lifetime. The temperature was at sub zero and water pipelines were frozen. Hats off to the staff who had carried water for us from quite a far distance. Their hospitality at

How far is chandertal lake from your place (Distance + Time) ?
If you wish to stay at night at chandratal then nomad cottage is not the right option, this is around 35+ km which takes 2-3 hrs to reach due to road conditions, also you can not travel during low light. However if you want to go to LOSAR then nomads is right option. Either you can visit chandratal while coming back from LOSAR or you visit while going to LOSAR. Also you need to travel 1-2 km by walk in chandratal which will add additional time. You can google for the tents which are available at chandratal but I am not sure of price.
