Rani Sui Lake Manali Address: Baror, Manali, Himachal Pradesh, 175131, India
Rani Sui Lake is located on a hilltop at an elevation of 3790m. From May to September, grasslands around the lake are covered with diverse flowers, hence giving the lake another name “flower valley”. In December, the lake freezes entirely and people may walk on it since the thick ice is impenetrable.
A 3-day trek is the most popular aspect of Rani Sui Lake. The feeling of panting at a high altitude is what excites the tourists. Additionally, close to Rani Sui Lake is an extraordinary stone creation that resembles the base of a bridge. It is said to have been erected by Pandavas during the Mahabharata yuga.
