Description

Prashar is a lovely little lake with a small floating island in the middle of it. This island keeps changing its position throughout the year and sometimes sticks to one position for days on end. Built in the 13th century, a three storied pagoda style temple dedicated to the sage Prashar is situated right next to the lake. Climb the adjoining hills to soak in some splendid 180 degree views of the Dhauladhar, Pir Panjal and Kinnaur mountain ranges. For those who don't wish to trek, there is a motorable road all the way to the lake!
