Prashar Lake is named after the Sage Prashar. It is around 50km from Mandi District of Himachal Pradesh and approximately 102km from Manali via Kullu, Bhuntar and Bajaura. It is said that Sage Prashar used to meditate near this lake.
There is three stories temple of Sage Prashar which is also in Pagoda style. The main attraction of the lake is the small floating island which rotates seasonally. Lake is covered with fencing and nobody is allowed to ride over the floating island except the Deity “Shree Vardha Naag” who rides over island during some special case when it is stuck.
Beautiful mountain range of Manali and Bijli Mahadev are also visible from here. Every year fair is organised here from 13th to 15th June and Deities from surrounding area make their presence. It is the most preferred picnic spot of school and college students, families, and groups and even it is a trekking paradise for the nature lover.
Parashar Lake is easily cover in same day, but if anybody wants to stay here, PWD and Forest Guest House are available here and also can arrange accommodation at nearby villages.
