From here, we took our cab and headed back to Bhuntar. On the way back we had to cross Bagi village which was alongside the almost dried up stream. There our driver showed us how the wrath of nature destroyed the whole village in a matter of seconds. During heavy rains this town was destroyed years back by a landslide and now, after all those years people have put in everything to rebuild it and continue their lives in every way possible. It was at this moment that we realized how tiny our problems are over which we ponder like the world has ended while in some different part of the planet, worlds are literally ending and people are still trying their best to continue with their lives.
How to reach:
There are two ways to reach to Prashar lake. One is trek from Baggi village. The other one is taking the road trip from Bhuntar or nearby areas. The road however is only open in the months of June, July and August. Other than these, the roads are blocked because of heavy rains and snow.
If taking the road route, it's advisable to take a cab as your driver will serve the purpose of a guide too. The people there are extremely helpful and always willing to guide you in case you are in need of directions.
Things to carry:
If going by road you won't need anything as there are a few shops on the top where you can get fast food and snacks. A few water bottles should suffice for the trip.
However if you are taking the hike from Baggi village, you will have to pack a lot of stuff for it. And if it's a winter trek, you will have to pack accordingly as the mercury dips pretty low in winters.
