Newly Added Mandi Experience
12 May 2017
Kosha Modi Prashar Lake Trek
We were a group of 50 students who went on a trip booked through thrillophilia. We had two stops in our journey, Kullu, and Prashar Lake. Kullu: We reached Kullu after an overnight bus journey. There were 10 tents, each with clean attached bathrooms. The tents were in a secluded area by the riverside. The location was beautiful and private. We did river rafting (around 4 kms) and rope activities by the day time. Around the evening, we all enjoyed by the bonfire. You can also walk around the streets during the day, and get a feel of the place. All in all, it was a very memorable experience. Next morning, we left for Mandi in a bus, and then left for trekking to Prashar Lake. It was a picturesque 7 km trek, doable for beginners. The view was extremely scenic especially at the top. There were 14 tents for all us, and a sleeping bag for each (The temperature had really fallen due to a hailstorm). Tasty food was served by the lake . There was a great view of snow-clad mountains from the location. All in all, the place was very serene and beautiful. One drawback was, that there were just three dirty bathrooms for 50 people. This trip is very suitable for adventurous people wanting a break from the city life in a destination which is not overcrowded.

Yashowardhan Chaturvedi Prashar Lake Trek
Prashar lake trek is a pretty jungle trail. It's perfect for the first timers as well as for pro's. I went in Nov, the sun was out and the views were fantastic. The view of Prashar lake is also serene. Do climb up the mound for the iconic view. The services at the camp site are also wonderful: fantastic food, courteous staff and warm tents. I would give an additional star to the organizer, Raj. When you are with him, you don't need to take any stress. He does out of his way to help you. You need any support, just call him!!

Gaurang Varma Prashar Lake Trek
We booked it for a group of 40 students and Thrillophilia offered the best price and services as well. The campsite was big enough to accommodate the group and the tents were very comfortable for the stay. They provided us with tasty food and we even got to eat pasta there which we didn’t expect. There were four guides with us and all of them were friendly. We had a great experience there and Thanks to Thrillophilia for it.
