A winter weekend should be no cause for getting bored as we have a fun excursion in Himachal Pradesh, planned for you. Pack your bags, and embark on the Prashar Lake trek with us. Prashar Lake is an ovular pond in a lush grassland. The lake, located at an elevation of approximately 9000 feet above sea level, is said to have been discovered by the Pandavas. But, you will not see a lush meadow here, as the winter snow will have covered it completely, turning it into a quintessentially Himalayan landscape. Though the trek is only 9 km one way, the snow may make it a bit challenging.
This Prashar Lake winter trek will take you on slightly steep ridges, which will give you loads of thrill. On the way, you will meander through forests of cedars, firs and spruces that will be white with snow. You will also walk past numerous rivulets that might be frozen due to the cold weather. After reaching the lake, you can visit the local pagoda-style temple here. Enjoy the rest of the day, making snowmen or snow fairies, or throw snowballs at each other. A warm bonfire and dinner will follow before you head inside your tent to sleep.
The next day, you have a chance to see an amazing sunrise over the snow-white Himalayas that you must not forget capturing in photos. Thereafter, Prashar Lake trekking in Himachal Pradesh ends with you tracing the mountain trail back to Panarsa. Though the trip will give you loads of fun, you should not take it lightly. Remember to pack good-quality woollens as the weather at higher reaches will be icy cold. Also, pack sturdy trekking shoes with spikes so you do not slide on the ice or sink in the fresh snow.
