Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
Surrounded by snowcapped peaks, Prashar Lake is the final destination of an easy but scenic trek that goes through forests, over several gullies, and past charming villages. The blue lake sits 2,730 m (8,957 ft) above sea level, overlooking a swiftly flowing river. Legend has it that one of the Pandava brothers--characters from the epic Mahabharata--pushed his elbow against a mountaintop, thus forming the lake.
