Some queries about Kunzum to Chandratal trek
Dear Pradipta da, We are a group of 6 people of 25-28 age group are planning the trek from Kunzum to Chandratal this September. We are planning to stay at Losar (starting from Manali of course) and next morning start the trek to Chandratal from Kunzum La. Do you think we need a guide from Losar? Are the trails visually clear? Though I traveled more than five times in Kaza-Manali route, I never did this trek, otherwise I am comfortable even with more challenging treks like Pin pass, Markha valley etc, so fitness is not an issue. However mountain terrain are often confusing if you can't see your destiny. So are the paths in this trek marked? Is the trail clear?

Hi Kaustuv, We went there long ago. But I recall that in the beginning part the trail is easy to find, but last few kms goes through grasslands. There it might be a bit tricky. We took a guide who doubled as the cook. So it worked out well. You may consider that to avoid the hassle.
