Speaking about the lake, it is situated at a height of about 2750 feet. If you are traveling to Mandi, then this stopover is great as it is just 50 kilometers from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh. Tourists have loved the scenic luxury this tourist destination offers, as the lake is right in the middle of many majestic mountains. This destination is epic, and you would surely skip a beat. Next, we were awed by the crystal clear lake that reflects the blue sky, green meadows that carpet the valley so delicately. The lake is surrounded by the Dhauladhar range. The specialty of the Prashar lake trekking experience is that you will have a full view of the Pir Panjal and Kinnaur mountain ranges apart from the Dhauladhar range.
Alongside, don't miss the floating island that is part of the lake and as per the locals, the depth of this divine lake is not known. These are noteworthy travel moments for every person who places adventure in their heart.
Many people ask, What is the best to visit, Himachal Pradesh, Mandi and of course the Prashar Lake? From our experience, we value enjoyment and safety a lot, and hence it is most advisable to enjoy the area between April to May. Avoid the monsoons in India, as the roads are slippery, the adventure hikes would be risky. The best time to visit this place is between December to February, when the climate is steady and will be pleasant during the climb.
Another fascinating spot of the lake is the historic temple that has been styled in the shape of the classic Pagoda. Its architectural mastery is undeniably admirable. The Prashar Lake Temple was built as an act of devotion to Rishi Prashar in the 14th century. Mythological references reveal that he was known to be the patron Divine power of the Mandi area. It took almost 12 whole years to build this magnificent beauty out of a huge deodar tree.
Get enticed by the temple carvings as they represent a magical era of the past where humble values and love were given importance in the best possible way. Fall in love with the charming trails and the soothing view lent by the Himalayas. Some of the other places to be added to your travel list are the Bijli Mahadev Temple, Lord Ramchandra Temple, and Kulant Pith. They offer the same serenity, but there is something a tad bit mystical about the glorious Prashar lake weather, that makes the Prashar Lake Temple so alluring.
Get ready to be loved and pampered by the local people, enjoy the lush forests and some delicacies that are purely Mandi's own culture and not even on the Google search lists! So, with us, you get the real feel of culture in the traditional manner.
