Also, since you can do the Prashar Lake trek throughout the year, it makes for a perfect getaway. A bonus makes this trek more special. Away from the hustle-bustle of your normal life, this is the place to go if you seek seclusion, tranquillity, and spectacular vistas.

Prashar lake trek is the perfect weekend trek to enjoy some peaceful time while also having to envision an adventurous journey ahead. The Prashar Lake trek is famous for many things including the Parashar temple, its hilly climb, breathtaking weather in Prashar, and of course, the lake itself.

The Prashar Lake lies 49 km north of Mandi, in the Kullu Valley, Himachal Pradesh. As the name suggests it is believed that the sage Prashar meditated and spent years of tranquility near the Lake.

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 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.

Day 1
Baggi to Mandi & Start Trek to Prashar Lake

Reach Mandi in the morning by 8 AM, from Mandi it’s a short 2-hour drive to Baggi village, which is the starting point of the Prashar Lake trek. Relax a bit and start your trek to Parashar Lake. The total distance of the trek is 8 km and the trail passes through dense forest.

The initial trail is through a path full of boulders and water streams. Mind your step while crossing the streams as stones remain slippery. After this stretch of about half km, you will reach the forest and from where the real trek starts. The whole Prashar Lake trek is steep and uphill and it passes through dense forest. After an uphill walk of around 5 km, you will reach a small meadow, which is a nice place to relax.

One can have its first sight of snow capped peaks from the meadow. After this meadow, the Prashar Lake trek seems a little easy. It takes around 4-5 hours to reach the Prashar lake. The Prashar lake is pristine and is surrounded by green pastures. There is a pagoda temple standing near the lake. After reaching there, explore the Prashar lake and the temple.

We went on the trek to Prashar lake on the new year with My Good Trip. The view of the sky full of stars we saw there, we had never seen before. It was like a dream. The lake was surrounded by snow and was frozen. Trekking to Prashar lake is the best travel decision I have taken till date.

Feeling like heaven, You need to walk more to reach this beautiful destination. Natural scenery and enjoy the time near Lake highly recommended My Good Trip!

Winters (December – February) is a good time to visit if you enjoy the snow. The place is almost freezing during the winters covered under a thick blanket of snow. You can see snow from the last week of December till mid-March.
