Prashar Lake Trek

1 review
Prashar Lake is located at a height of 2730 m above sea level. With deep water, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks there is around floating island inside the lake, which is a common natural phenomenon, found all around the world. The floating land moves in all directions in the lake. The floating land covers 7% of the area of lake whereas water is with 93%.<br>The temple was built in the thirteenth century and legend has it was built from a single tree. The lake has a floating island in it and it is to be unclear how deep it is, with a diver not being able to determine its depth.

This lake is also called as moon lake. This was the 2nd time when I have been here. As soon I reached the lake I went in flashback for a while. Truely pristine lake with Crystal clear water. The lake looks beautiful with all the landscapes around specially on a sunny day.

We reached till Kaza. Last stop before our planned destination Chandratal. But at night there were heavy rains, snowfall and landslides. All roads in all direction were closed. Finally, after waiting for two days in Kaza, we had to return back. Just missed Chandratal.

If you are on spiti tour, this is one lake you should not miss. The journey is itself a experience in its own way. The condition of roads keep changing. So you will have to speak to local drivers to know the condition when you are planning to travel. The lake is approximately 02 hours from batal. Have an early lunch at batal (cafe chacha Chachi). From batal you will reach a campsite first, and then another 15 mins to the parking area. Then a 20-30 min trek to the highest point near the lake. The periphery walk of the lake may take you 90 mins. So you should not reach the lake after 1400 hrs i.e. 2pm so you can return safely to batal/ losar. My advice is dont sleep at chandertal camping area if you haven't slept a night before at similar or higher altitude.

Virgin territory in Lahul Valley beyond Kunzum Pass ..the road ends here and you walk 20 mins to experience truly untouched nature - The Chandertal lake. Need to have expert driver to reach here and some camps about 5 kms before lake if you want to stay overnight. No stay or littering at Chandertal pls . About 93 kms from Kaza via kunzum pass.
