Overview

About the Destinations:

The Prashar Lake trek is an amazing and much demanded way to explore the beauty and charm of a high altitude lake with the same name! Located in the Mandi district at a height of 8,957ft, this water reservoir is one of the most stunning lakes in Himachal Pradesh. According to the legends, this high altitude water body was once the meditating ground of a sage called Parashar; and thus, it got its name.

Dedicated to the sanctity of the sage, a three-storied temple that resembles the shape of a pagoda has been built beside the lake. The beliefs related to the Parashar Lake also says that the temple was originally built by a baby with only a single tree. It is also said the depth of the lake is still not clearly known!
