Newly Added Mandi Experience
Sage Prashar is the reason Prashar Lake got its name ages ago. One visits this quintessential lake will be unknowingly directed to oblivion and for sure the serenity will let every visitor linger for more. Located in Mandi village, Himachal Pradesh, the iconic attraction apart from the lake is the three stories pagoda like temple structure near the lake. 2730 meters above the lake seats amidst the rejuvenating sets of nature’s miracles including the snow-clad peaks in the backdrop and River Beas flowing so fast through the valley down. One can get access to the lake through Drang. The age of temple lengthens back to 13th century and the lake has one more surprise within it that is a floating island. Though visitors are seen in plenty over here, no one could accurately fathom the depth the lake goes into, till date.
Dhauladhar Range or the White Range is located on the southern region of outer Himalayan Peaks, rising to the north of Kangra and Mandi. Hanuman ji Ka Tibba is the highest mountain located in this peak at an altitude of 5639 meters. But this range is popular because of its differing topography. Though the major portions are composed of granite, the range presents the multiple formations of slate, limestone and sandstone often. Those who would like to do trekking at this range are supposed to have the perfect skills in trekking and mountaineering as the ranges extend the vertical incline until the top. It still remains tough to inhabit humans in large numbers but the surrounding meadows and forest range have plenty of admirers from all over the world.
Though Himachal Pradesh amuses the visitors with its abundant natural sights, Rewalsar Lake or Tso Pema Lotus Lake will be the biggest surprise to see because of its unusual shape itself. This square shaped lake mid-altitude lake is located in Mandi district, at a height of about 1360 meters above sea level. The sacred water in it, the woodlands and mountain peaks around have attributed more beauty to the spot and it has been an important destination for Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. The lake shares space with three Buddhist monasteries and three Hindu temples and another holy lake Kunt Bhyog lies above Rewalsar. Here, different types of festivities happen yearly; the Sisu Fair in February or March and Baisakhi festival are the important ones.
