Parashar lake is a sacred lake located on the top of a hill near the Baggi village in the Mandi district. The lake is situated at a height of 2730m above sea level and it is dedicated to Sage Parashar. There is a temple situated near the lake and is believed to be built in the 13th century.
The lake houses a floating island which keeps changing its position time to time. With many stories doing the round few believed that it hasn’t shifted for the past three months and with the help of island shifts locals can predict weather conditions and can be prepared for worse.
According to locals, it is said that the water level of the lake has been maintained for centuries now. There is no water source to the lake. The lake is surrounded by snow laden peaks of Himachal Pradesh most of the time of the year. One can have clear views of mighty peaks such as Indrasan, Deo Tibba, etc. It is one of the few weekend treks from Delhi and Chandigarh.
