An amazing place to spend some relaxing time with your family. The population of the area is less and environment is peaceful. Another best thing about the trip was the organizing team. All the arrangements were done in a perfect way. I highly recommend their services to all my friends.

I collected the most amazing memories at Prashar Lake trek. The greenery around the lake, the view of lofty mountains and the small beautiful temple blew our mind completely. We sat near the lake for 2-3 hours and the experience was truly refreshing. Though the trek is simple, you should be physically to cover the distance. Also, do not forget to take the water bottle and some energy bars to avoid dehydration.

I and my husband went for Prashar Lake hiking last month and we were mesmerized with the beauty of the place. I am sure that Prashar Lake trek is one of the best trekking destinations if you don’t want to invest too much time and effort.

I went on Prashar hike along with my 4 friends. We had too much fun during the trek. There is a small temple and 2-3 shops. The way looks scary but it would be a great adventure if you plan to go here with your friends.

The sunrise and sunsets that one can witness from this place are one of the most memorable things. This picturesque lake and its surroundings provide beautiful views. The whole trail to the lake also consists of streams, waterfalls and forests. The weather was lovely and most of the Himalayan peaks were clearly visible. Staying in tents and then waking up to a beautiful sunrise are the perfect kind of things I wish I could experience everyday. A perfect trip to just take a break from work and be amidst nature's tranquility and peace. Anybody will love this trek.

The Prashar Lake is situated in a valley surrounded by a number of peaks. It is said that sage Parashar had prayed by the banks of this lake. An ancient temple is situated that is dedicated to him. The Pandavas had also apparently been to this place and Bhim had carved this lake from the rugged mountains using his elbow . All these mythological stories add a certain level of mystery to this place that generates interests among most people. Beginners like me who have not been to trekking expeditions prior to this will not face difficulties as it is a very easy trek. Loved the whole experience.

The trek was an easy yet memorable two day event that started from Mandi. The trek was not too hectic. Other the beautiful views, the best part was staying the tents and spending time with all other people who were part of this trek. Definitely made a few new friends. A perfect trip that I needed to rejuvenate my mind.

I and my office colleagues decided to be part of this trek for a weekend. It was a wonderful trek that passed through some lush green forests and meadows. The beautiful lake is surrounded by beautiful Himalayan peaks. A small ancient temple dedicated to sage Parashar is also situated here. We stayed in tents and loved the experience.
