Everything was perfect on this trek. Me and my friend book this trek after going through different websites and reviews and finally booked through Thrillophilia as one our friend recommended us who already went on this trek with Thrillophilia. Quality of service was very good from team and the guide was very helpful. Parashar is one of the most beautiful lake in Himachal and it’s a must visit.

It is an awesome trek. Hiking 9km through the lush green forest, rocky areas, some steep ascent, and various waterfalls, it was a treat away from city life.
The tour was well managed by the operator. The Operator/Guide picked us up from bus drop. He was with us until we boarded the bus back. He helped us to cross the rough patches on the trek, maintained the pace according to us. He is familiar with the flora & fauna on the trek and keeps telling us about them during the journey.
One thing to note for camping is that the camp is 2km away from Lake, and not just outside the fence on the lake as mentioned in the description of this trek. The camp is on the private land of the operator, which was good as there was a proper toilet/ kitchen on the site.
The meals were good. He also fed us with fresh Apples from the local farm.

The beauty of the lake is unbelievable. So splendid from all angles. The temple, the floating lake in the middle of pure green meadows were really an epic view. Trek was quite easy. I went along with my partner. We literally enjoyed it from the bottom of our hearts. At this price, it was great an experience. No pollution or no traffic. rarely any people we saw on the route, especially the last stretches of the trek. Very beautiful climate also though it rained at times. They have arranged proper stay and food too. Thanks.

We were a group of 50 students who went on a trip booked through thrillophilia. We had two stops in our journey, Kullu, and Prashar Lake.
We reached Kullu after an overnight bus journey. There were 10 tents, each with clean attached bathrooms. The tents were in a secluded area by the riverside. The location was beautiful and private. We did river rafting (around 4 kms) and rope activities by the day time. Around the evening, we all enjoyed by the bonfire. You can also walk around the streets during the day, and get a feel of the place. All in all, it was a very memorable experience. Next morning, we left for Mandi in a bus, and then left for trekking to Prashar Lake. It was a picturesque 7 km trek, doable for beginners. The view was extremely scenic especially at the top. There were 14 tents for all us, and a sleeping bag for each (The temperature had really fallen due to a hailstorm). Tasty food was served by the lake . There was a great view of snow-clad mountains from the location. All in all, the place was very serene and beautiful. One drawback was, that there were just three dirty bathrooms for 50 people. This trip is very suitable for adventurous people wanting a break from the city life in a destination which is not overcrowded.

"It was the perfect trek for a biegniers, but the person who never done trek before i will tell that it was Not that easy trek that you think too, Actually it was the moderate trek. \n\nWe start trekking morning 10 am after travelling 15 km through, jungle and river we reached the destination prashar lake. The lake is accompanied by fast flowing beas river the lake prashar is very scenic. With deep blue waters and a pagoda structured temple it create a very sacred feelings in visitors mind. The most striking characteristic of the place is its silence that you may experience nowhere else. "

Prashar Lake Trek is not very popular; thus it is not crowded or polluted like other trekking spots or even other sightseeing spots in the vicinity. Other than that it is a easy level trekking tour but provides a wonderful life time experience.This is a perfect trek to take!

We visited Prashar Lake in winter which I felt to be the best time to visit Himachal Pradesh. We chose to trek from Baagi village to Prashar lake which is a good 17 or so kilometers. In the beginning of our trek we had the perfect weather, a good sunny day but on day two it started to snow so we had to camp. But it was totally worth the experience. The best part of it being the spectacular view. On reaching Prashar Lake we visited the famous and beautiful wood carved- Pagoda temple and the sunset at Prashar lake was a breathtaking and magnificent end to our trip to Himachal

My Husband and I took this trek. This was our first trek together. Both of us have been trekking individually for some time now, but our work timing never let us to take a vacation together, and when we did take it, it was just about awesome. I am glad to have chosen this place to trek. It was a really nice spot. It is full of natural beauty. The trek is of moderate-challenging level, but with ample trek experience, it was quite moderate for us to finish it. Also, the trek organizers had done a wonderful job in planning and organizing the trek. Kudos, to them!

Excellent destination with awesome views. It is lies 49KM north of Mandi in Himachal Pradesh and located at height of 2730m above the sea level. With deep blue water the lake looks mind blowing.

This place is truly the jewel of Himachal Pradesh and was half frozen when I visited this place. It was worth the money . We got to see the river Beas too and man, what a sight it is. Had my camera with me to capture the beauty, but I do not think one can do the place justice. I mean, it is that beautiful!
