Prashar Lake’s historical background-
Prashar Rishi, who used to meditate here, regards the lake as holy. Raja Bank Sen of Mandi commissioned the captivating Himachali architecture of the temple, which was constructed in the 13th century in the Rishi’s honor, and named the lake after him.
In order to connect with the Higher Power, Dev Bhoomi Himachal would not miss a chance! It stands to reason that such serene and quiet settings would be ideal for meditation and connecting with the larger purpose of the cosmos. And isn’t that what we typically do when we travel to such lusciously heavenly places?
Regarding the Prashar Lake hiking trail-
Before you finally arrive at the lake, you’ll have to cross gorgeous rivers and heavily forested Himalayan hills. Along the river basin, the trek gets underway. Your only water source is fifteen minutes into the trail, so fill up while you still can because you’ll need it later.
Your ascent starts after the trail leaves the river and turns upward. This moderately steep climb is about 4 kilometres long. You will occasionally find sections of the trail that open up into lovely meadows and provide you with stunning views of snow-capped mountains.
You’ll have the opportunity to experience or observe the Himachali way of life as the trail passes through a few settlements.
