One of Spiti Valley's beautiful secrets is Dhankar Lake. Perched above the Dhankar Village and Gompa, Dhankar Lake lies after a steep trek of 45 minutes. Though the trek seems an easy hike, it is pretty tricky. The loose pebbles and the crisp mountain air make you breathless within a few seconds. Nevertheless, Dhankar Lake in Spiti can be reached after a strenuous trek. Of course, you would want to quit and not continue your climb, but the surprise you get once you reach the lake is beyond words. The breathtaking expanse of cerulean waters is set against the backdrop of snow-covered peaks. From Dhankar Lake, you can also get a magnificent view of Manirang Peak (6593 meters), the highest peak of Himachal Pradesh, lying on the border of the Kinnaur and Spiti districts.
Camping next to the Dhankar Lake is forbidden, as it acts as a water source for Dhankar village. This lake is also sited at the beginning of the Spiti Left Bank trek. The beauty of the lake is spellbinding. If you spend enough time at the lake, you can see the sky change colors and reflect on the glassy lake. Within a span of just a few hours, you would have seen a profusion of colors, each one fascinating in its way.
