Overview


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 16 Kilometers to and fro which 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.

In this weekend getaway, we take you to a winter wonderland. Although the cold weather and high altitude can put some strain on you, the view that you get to see is extraordinary and feels rewarding. Triund, Dhauladhar, and Hanuman Tibba are some of the peaks that are visible from the viewpoint.

The Prashar lake is treated as a sacred place by all the locals and once you reach this place, you won’t be able to stop yourself from getting lost in the spiritual essence that is palpable in the air. 

There are a ton of places to visit near Prashar lake, which are equally beautiful and can add to your experience. Bijli Mahadev Temple, Lord Ramchandra Temple, and Kulant Pith are a few examples of the same. Also, if you are looking for camping places to stay near Prashar lake then your best bet could be camping near Prashar lake, a forest guest house or one could take shelter in the Parashar temple itself.

The best time to do the Prashar lake trek is from November to  December when the mountains as well as the meadows are covered with a thick blanket of ivory snow. Although it remains accessible around the year, the presence of the snow just makes the entire experience even more breathtaking than it usually is.
