  • The Parashar Lake is located in the Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh, 49 kilometres north of Mandi. The sage Parashar is said to have meditated here. A three-story Pagoda-style temple at the lake's shore looks quite traditional due to the wooden carvings. The view from the lake is peaceful, and the water appears to be totally blue. Another fascinating feature about Parashar Lake is that its position changes throughout the year.
  • This Prashar Lake winter trip is an exciting hike up fairly steep hills. Prashar Lake walk (2,620m) elegantly takes tourists to the frozen lake, which is a true example of dazzling beauty, and is otherwise popular as an exceptional trek in Himachal Pradesh's heart.The temperature ranges from 13°C to 18°C during the day and dips to 0°C to 7°C at night.
  • Because the lake is surrounded by small hills, one must hike 500 metres to the top to have a view of the lake and the temple. You'll have to descend a little to get there. Shoes, leather belts, and purses, among other items, are not permitted in the main temple compound. You can do a Parikrama around the lake (walking around). Every year in the month of June, a fair is held here. People come from all across the surrounding communities. This lake is nourished by small mountain streams located nearby.

Preparation for PRASHAR LAKE TREK

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.

So here are some aspects regarding Hampta Pass Trek preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program. Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.

Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho, flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).

Holla! I can write pages and pages about the trekking experience and overall activity had with HAT I long wanted to do high altitude trek. And this is how I got to know about HAT I choose Parashar don't know why but once I have done my trek I believed that I was meant to be at Parashar-. I made amazing friends on the trek, got connected with mother nature, and got a sense of accomplishment and motivation after the trek. The trek leader is one Super soul. He helped me through the entire trek and made sure I don't give up and complete the Summit. Cheers! The views from the Summit are amazing. They take you to the actual summit. The gears, tents, and the safety protocols they follow are really good. I am happy with my experience and I have made amazing memories for a lifetime

It was a weekend trek that we did in the month of January, when you get to see beautiful snow peaks and just a hang of winter treks! I would say it was the trek till Parashar lake which made it even more worth going for this place for we got to see both green patches and snow trail after a while. You start getting a glimpse of what to expect when you reach your destination , but it’s much more beautiful than you would expect. We pitched our own tents, localites helped us with hot soup & food, spent a night, luckily it was full moon :) Next day morning we played in the snow, did snow slides :D and headed back... It was a nice short & sweet way trek was around 4-5hrs depending on your’s an easy trek, if anyone doing a trek for the first time, I would highly suggest to start doing 30min walk /run daily starting 3weeks before the planned date. In the end don’t forget to enjoy every step:D Come back with some great experiences to share !! Cheerio :)
