Still Water Sports
The Maharana Pratap Sagar lake and its 42 kms length and 2 kms breadth serves as a substantial inland sea that offers variety of activities in close collaboration with Himachal tourism and the Directorate of Mountaineering and Allied sports. Year long activities include swimming, water skiing, surfing, kayaking, rowing, canoeing and sailing. Three levels of courses are also conducted beginers, intermediate and advanced.
Similar activities are also available at the Gobind Sagar near Bilaspur the Chamera lake near Dalhousie and the Pandoh lake on the Mandi-Manali highway. boating is also available on the Renuka lake in the district of Sirmour. Regattas are organised at different points of year at various places. As the dates may vary from year to year these and other details may be taken from the offices of Himachal tourism.
Spring (May/June)- You would get lots of snow but roads are at worst, lots and lots of tourists and obviously a costly trip with escalated price.
Monsoon (July/Aug) - Ladakh/Lahaul/Spiti is historically there is no rain but traffic is high.
Autumn (Sep/Oct) - Roads are at the best but almost no snow enroute. Weatherwise I like this season personally the most, the weather after monsoon recedes remain crystal clear with least haze/dust/mist and gives excellent visibility for watching peaks.
Winter (Nov-April) - At your own risk without any tourists, excellent bargain and budget trip is likely. Also for special interest tours like say Chaddar trek of Zanskar, this is the time to go.
