  • Trip introduction

    This short and easy trek to Prashar Lake is a gorgeous, nature-rich adventure in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh. The trail begins from the small, hillside village of Baggi and leads you into a dense forest, with ancient oaks and towering pines. Large meadows and grasslands with pretty wildflowers like rhododendron often interrupt the woods. Hiking over gradually inclining slopes, you'll stop to catch your breath at vantage points, where you'll encounter a dramatic collection of brown and grey mountains as far as the eye can see.

    Destination

    Prashar Lake is an oval-shaped body of water over 8,900 feet in the hills of Himachal Pradesh. Next to the lake stands a traditional, pagoda-style temple dedicated to the Prashar sage, who is said to have lived and meditated here centuries ago. The lake is home to a small, circular, floating island, that is said to mysteriously move around inside the lake. The short and easy trek to Prashar Lake leads you on a well-established and wide trail, making it perfect for beginner as well as experienced trekkers.
