Kheerganga,parashar lake, chandertaal lake and above all lahaul and spiti.

For the best stargazing, you want to go as high as possible, so as to have a thinner atmosphere with less dirt or particulate matter in the air. And you want to go as far as possible from any other sources of light such as cities and towns.

Since you asked for Himachal, Spiti valley which is a high altitude region has lots of opportunities for stargazing and so does some treks far from towns. Visit these places outside the monsoon season to avoid clouds. If you’re lucky you’ll witness meteor shower too, depending on the time of the year you visit.

Also try to avoid full moons and make the best use of new moon nights, as otherwise the moon takes up all the limelight dimming the weaker starry light.
