Prashar lake is a perect trek for anyone looking for a 2 days of wilderness. Am happy that i did this trek and even more happy that i booked it from thrillophilia. all the arrangements from food, camps, bonfire, guides were on time and of top quality. Morning yoga and Meditation around the lake was very refreshing.

    "It was the perfect trek for a biegniers, but the person who never done trek before i will tell that it was Not that easy trek that you think too, Actually it was the moderate trek. \n\nWe start trekking morning 10 am after travelling 15 km through, jungle and river we reached the destination prashar lake. The lake is accompanied by fast flowing beas river the lake prashar is very scenic. With deep blue waters and a pagoda structured temple it create a very sacred feelings in visitors mind. The most striking characteristic of the place is its silence that you may experience nowhere else. "
