Prashar Lake Trek Overview

About the trek:

Prashar Lake is nestled gloriously in Kullu Valley in the midst of mighty Dhauladhar Ranges, which makes it a must-visit place for those who seek bliss in the laps of nature. The lake has its own floating island and the depth of the lake is still unknown. The ancient pagoda-styled Prashar Rishi temple stands tall on the banks of the river which is made in honour of the Rishi Prashar. One of the many reasons to visit this place is that it offers 180-degree views of Pir Panjal, Dhauladhar, and Kinnaur mountain ranges from the peak point which is a feast to one's eyes.

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.

The beauty of the lake is unbelievable. So splendid from all angles. The temple, the floating lake in the middle of pure green meadows were really an epic view. Trek was quite easy. I went along with my partner. We literally enjoyed it from the bottom of our hearts. At this price, it was great an experience. No pollution or no traffic. rarely any people we saw on the route, especially the last stretches of the trek. Very beautiful climate also though it rained at times. They have arranged proper stay and food too. Thanks.
