Saw them quite often outside JCNP while driving through, especially at places where there were streams with gentle running water. Also saw Little forktails which are seen in much faster running water.
On the way from Manali to Kalpa.
Kalpa is a town at above 9000 feet famous for its view of Kinnaur Kailash mountains as well as its apple orchards. There are pine forests all around and the entire range of peaks are visible. It gets quite few visitors and in order to continue towards Spiti Valley, one needs to secure Inner Line Permits from Reckong Peo.
At an altitude of 14,100 ft, Chandra Tal has to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. In spring time, flowers bloom majorly on the meadows whereas at night the sky comes alive with stars with a spectacular view of the Milky Way. In my view, September is the best time to visit Chandra Tal. It is cold but in terms of seeing flora, fauna, topography and for photography, this is the best time!
