    we are a group of 4 guys on bike and are planning to visit chandartaal on 29 sep 17.. just want to make sure that are there any chances of snowing ?? and getting struck there ..or we shouldn't worry about that .... reading blog posts i think usually it never snows before 10 oct.. so we should go without worrying about getting struck ??
    and is there any working petrol pump between manali and chandartaal ?? as it might be difficult to go from manali to chandartaal and back to manali on a single full tank on 500cc bullet.

    No you are OK traveling at the mentioned dates. Camps at Chandratal will remain open until 10th October. Very rare chance of snowing that early. You should be able to make it back to Manali on 1 tank full, but just to be on a safer side, carry two or three 2 liters Pepsi Bottles. Get those filled up as well when you tank up in Manali. Carry them in a backpack carefully and after every 50-60 kilometers or so, keep emptying one bottle in the tank so that you do not have to carry the weight. There is no petrol pump between Manali and Chandratal, next one is only at Kaza.
