Journey to Prashar Lake at 8560 feet Height (Pictures)

On 18th of this month, I got chance to drive to Prashar Lake situated at 8560 feet above sea level. This place is 50 KM away from Mandi district head quarter. I was planning to visit this place from many years; however, I never got chance to do so earlier. On 18th March, it was Monday and weather was clear; therefore, I decided to visit this place. Up to 31 KM road condition was fine; however, last 19 KM tested my driving skills.

Last four KM have snow; though, road was cleared by PWD department. At some places, road was very bad and you were required to change many directions before crossing it smoothly. In last 19 KM, you face steep ascend; therefore, my driving speed was 10 to 15 KM/hour only. It took almost two hours to cross last 19 KMs. After reaching at the top, it was a shock at first because main way to reach Prashar lake was covered with 4 to 5 feet snow.

Therefore, I felt very disappointed because I was just few meters away from Lake. However, thankfully there was one alternate path available to enter Lake at other side. Inside there was not much snow and both lake and temple were clearly visible. After reaching here, I thanked Prashar Rishi and enjoyed my median visit to this beautiful and spiritual place.
