What to Expect on Prashar Lake Trek

Prashar Lake trek is a wonderful trek which can be done almost all round the year. The trail through the forest is enchanting and the views that are offered on this trek are also great. There is also a hint of mystery that is based on the sacred Prashar lake as it is believed that the lake was created as a dent by Bhima, one of the Pandavas. One thing that’s the most interesting about this mysterious lake is that no one has been able to measure its actual depth. Moreover, there is a floating island inside the lake that keeps on changing its position and the locals claim to determine the weather just by looking at the position of that island in the lake. Also, the legend has it that the entire temple was build using a single tree and, that too, by a baby. So, all these mysteries and legends along with the gushing streams and mighty mountains make Prashar lake a great choice to explore nature.


Day 1Mandi to Baggi to Prashar lake

The trek starts from Baggi which is a small village located at an approx. 2-hour drive from Mandi. After you reach the base camp, i.e. baggi, you can enjoy a decent breakfast at the place while enjoying the view of the mountains and river Beas. There is also a small shop nearby from where you can buy some basic essentials as well as some snacks. After you get familiarized with your trek mates and trek lead, the trek will begin by crossing over the river through a tunnel like bridge. The initial 500 metres test the trekkers as that patch is a little steep but then it is a gradual climb for a while. On some days, the trail gets changed due to heavy rains and trekkers have to snake their ways out of some of the narrow patches. There is also a small waterfall which is another gem that you come across during the trek. Almost throughout the climb, the views are stunning and soothing. Then, you reach a meadow which is a good spot to gaze upon the snow-laden Dhauladhars and take a small break and have your lunch. Afterward, the trek ascends gradually while allowing you to take in the beautiful environ.

As you reach your destination, i.e. Prashar Lake, you will be stunned by the surreal beauty of the lake, its floating island, the three-tiered pagoda temple dedicated to sage Prashar which rests beside the lake, and the surrounding mountains. The entire scene is so picturesque that you may as well forget that you have made a laborious climb. You can spend some time taking pictures, talking to the locals, and having tea and some snacks at a small teashop located nearby. After that, head to the campsite and enjoy your overnight stay in a tent. The nights there are dead silent so you can also either enjoy a bonfire or simply spend some time stargazing.

Day 2Prashar lake to Baggi and then Mandi

As the day begins, make sure that you get to see the amazing sunrise. Then, enjoy the breakfast and head back to the base camp i.e. Baggi village. You can either opt for a ride to reach Baggi or trek your way back down to the village, the latter being the more exciting one. From there, you can head back to Mandi.

Location & How to Reach

The nearest airport is the Bhuntar airport which is located at a distance of 75 kms from Mandi. So, if you are planning to travel by air then you can take a flight to Bhuntar and then reach Mandi via a shared taxi or local bus and then continue towards Baggi where you will be joined by the rest of the group.

If you are planning to travel via road then you can either hire a taxi or travel by bus. There are plenty of buses, both AC and non-AC, that you can opt from to reach Mandi.
