The Experience

Days : 2 | Nights : 1

Surrounded by the Dhauladhar ranges in Kullu Valley is a blue-water lake called Prashar. It is a well-kept secret in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh. The trek to Prashar Lake follows a charming trail through a forest and several rivulets. Meanwhile, one can enjoy the local culture as the trail goes through small villages as well. The trek offers a 180 degree view of the Dhauladhar, Pir Pinjal and Kinnaur mountain ranges.

Be surrounded by nature, camp in the middle of nowhere, sing songs besides the bonfire and wake up to the vistas of snow covered himalayas.

  • This is a fixed departure trip, which means that we only have a limited no of seats available and everything has been prebooked well in advance. If you are a solo traveller, you may be asked to share a room with another solo traveller. But don’t worry, everyone here is nice and always looking forward to meet other travellers. Last minute cancellations and changes will be difficult to consider.
  • Once you send us a query, our travel planner will call you up or send you an email to give you some more details and your seat will be confirmed upon the receipt of some advance token amount.
  • The accommodation is a budget type accommodation but comes with all the basic amenities. After all, we hope you will be spending more time in the outside that in your room.

 

About Parashar Lake :

Prashar Lake lies 50 km north of Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, India. Along the lake is a three storied pagoda-like temple dedicated to sage Prashar. Built in the thirteenth century, legend has it that the temple was built by a baby from a single tree. Sage Prashar is believed to have meditated here and the lake is held sacred. Snow-capped peaks surround the lake and temple and the trek to the lake provides breathtaking views of Dhauladhar, Pir Pinjal and Kinnaur mountain ranges.  

A “good weather” road connects Baagi village to Prashar Lake. During winters, this road is closed because of heavy snowfall that this ridge receives. However, the presence of a road, albeit closed, ensures a painless navigation to the lake. The route is simple to follow with no steep ascents or descents. These factors combined, make this 16 kilometer trek an excellent beginner winter trek that is also quite child friendly.
