Named after the sage Prashar (father of Ved Vyas), Prashar Lake is said to be the place where the mighty sage meditated. In the 14th century, a pagoda was built by Raja Ban Sen, giving this isolated meditation spot religious and spiritual validation. Along with the beautiful lake, the specific area is also well known for the stunning panoramic view it gives of the entire valley.
Now one wouldn't consider Mandi to be a touristy spot. Lying between Manali and Punjab, this small halt is actually quite a surprise. Offering you stunning views of the cascading mountains, the lush forests and the swiftly flowing Beas, Mandi is a delight. Yet to become as popular as Kullu or Manali, Mandi is where you can go for your rejuvenating, quiet holiday. If adventure is your idea of a great holiday, trekking and rafting are some activities you can indulge in. Mandi is also home to numerous small temples (it's said that every village here has a separate God). If you are in a particularly adventurous mood, you can head to Parashar Lake. A bus leaves from here every morning at 7:30 am to Baggi, from where you can trek till Parashar Lake. Foodies, it's best not to hope for delicious food at every restaurant you enter. Local cuisine here is the best option and if you are experimental, you can try the trout. Do choose a homestay that offers a package of all activities here since it's an unexplored spot and you may need local assistance. Reaching Mandi is not too difficult and you can find a bus either to Manali or further. All buses stop at Mandi since it's a significant pit stop, though taking a train may be a little tricky.
