Trekking is a fun-filled ride that delivers quite an amount of thrill and quenches the thirst of adventure. Trekking is not always limited to a week-long duration of a strenuous walk to admire the beauty of nature. Short trekking journeys are equally enthralling and a great weekend trek to a beautiful place can serve the purpose well.
The Prashar Lake Trek can be considered as a weekend trek which can be attempted with family as well. The blue water lake of Prashar is surrounded by the panoramic views of the Dhauladhar Range and is located in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh.
The exciting journey takes you through a dense forest and a number of rivulets to an elevation of just less than 9000 ft. Along the trail, the rural villages reflect upon the local culture and lifestyle of the region.
