The Prashar lake trek is the perfect weekend trip from Delhi to enjoy some peaceful time while also satisfying your inner adrenal junkie.
Situated at an altitude of 2730 meters above sea level, the mystical lake is nestled among snow-covered mountains with the Beas river flowing downside.
One of the most fascinating things about Prashar lake is that a mysterious island keeps floating in the lake all throughout the year. It seemingly looks as if it were rotating in an orbit around the Prashar Temple which is one of the must-visit places in Prashar.
To reach Prashar lake, one has to first cover the distance between Mandi and Parashar, where the village Mandi is the starting point for anyone visiting Prashar lake. Prashar Trek distance sums up to be around 7.5 Kilometers and makes up for a wonderful uphill climbing experience.
The temple has mythical as well as historical significance as it dates back to the 13th century and was named after the sage Prashar. As far as legend goes, it is believed that this three-storied temple was built using a single tree. Interestingly, the stories associated with the temple go as far back in time as the Hindu epic Mahabharata.
One of the reasons that this lake stirs curiosity in the minds of travelers is that the true depth of this lake still remains unknown.
We organize this trek to Prashar in an effort to encourage passionate travelers to explore the hidden gems our country has to offer. Prashar lake is easily one of the best winter treks to do in India and a place that you must visit in Himachal.
