Our Drive to Prashar Lake:
We as usual, left Delhi at 4 O’clock in the morning to avoid city traffic started our drive from NH1 till Ambala. There are many Dhabas on the way, where you can stop by, to have some delicious food. After Ambala, our next milestone was Kiratpur Sahib, from where we took turn towards Bilaspur & Sundernagar, which finally leads to Mandi. We had some breakfast at Mandi and then started our drive towards Prashar Lake.
The place that we saw on the way from Mandi to Prashar Lake are really like heaven. The roads are narrow, but the surroundings & valleys are amazing, which force you to stop by and just admire the beauty of nature. We also stopped at few places, took pictures and then moved towards Prashar Lake.
