Prashar Lake lies 49 km north of Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, India, with a three storied pagoda-like temple dedicated to the sage Prashar. The lake is located at a height of 2730 m above sea level. With deep blue waters, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks and looking down on the fast flowing river Beas, the lake can be approached via Drang. The temple was built in the thirteenth century and legend has it was built by a baby from a single tree. The lake has a floating island in it and it is said to be unclear how deep it is, with a diver not being able to determine its depth.
The lake is very calm and Padmasambhav statue stands out once a person gets a closer look around the place. Lake is surrounded by temples and monasteries around it. A big trishul at a temple is also visible from a distance.One can try to visit a dave which is near Naina Devi temple - a ride by a local bus possible but do check timings from Mandi station and from local people once you reach Rewalsar.One can also try a few dishes at Emaho Cafe just at the entrance of the lake.
