Chandra river which flows through Lahaul Spiti region originates from Samudri Taapu near Chandrataal Lake. Even in a place like  Spiti, it is among the harder places to reach.
There are two routes to reach Samudri Taau from Chandrataal Lake. One involves trekking along a long circuitous route which passes through origin of one of the streams which becomes Chandra river downstream. Trekkers have to walk over and places climb over numerous ridges spread over the mountains. For other trekking route, you have to climb down to the river bed and cross it river via  ropeway. The person has to hang on by a rope to cross the ropeway.  Although a bit strange, this way is shorter and reduces travel time by about 4 hours.
trek to Samudri Tapu in about 3 hours if going by ropeway and 6 hours by trekking throught the longer route.
