Prashar Lake, also known as the Parashar Lake, is located around 50 km from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh. The lake sits at an altitude of 8956 ft and is a natural abode for serenity and scenic beauty; here, you also get to enjoy the beautiful views of Pir Panjal, Dhauladhar and Kinnauri mountain ranges as an incentive.
The lake, in fact, got its name because it houses the three storied pagoda-like temple, dedicated to sage Prashar. It is believed that the sage used to meditate near the bank of this lake, reason why the temple and the lake are named so. The lake situated at such an altitude turns frozen during winter, while it maintains its sparkling beauty throughout the year.
