Places To Visit In Mandi
We were a group of 50 students who went on a trip booked through thrillophilia. We had two stops in our journey, Kullu, and Prashar Lake. Kullu: We reached Kullu after an overnight bus journey. There were 10 tents, each with clean attached bathrooms. The tents were in a secluded area by the riverside. The location was beautiful and private. We did river rafting (around 4 kms) and rope activities by the day time. Around the evening, we all enjoyed by the bonfire. You can also walk around the streets during the day, and get a feel of the place. All in all, it was a very memorable experience. Next morning, we left for Mandi in a bus, and then left for trekking to Prashar Lake. It was a picturesque 7 km trek, doable for beginners. The view was extremely scenic especially at the top. There were 14 tents for all us, and a sleeping bag for each (The temperature had really fallen due to a hailstorm). Tasty food was served by the lake . There was a great view of snow-clad mountains from the location. All in all, the place was very serene and beautiful. One drawback was, that there were just three dirty bathrooms for 50 people. This trip is very suitable for adventurous people wanting a break from the city life in a destination which is not overcrowded.

Prashar lake is one of the most beautiful and scenic places. We had visited the place between April and July and again in September and November and the later one is the best time i would suggest for anyone to visit such a peaceful and serene beauty!

Excellent destination with awesome views. It is lies 49KM north of Mandi in Himachal Pradesh and located at height of 2730m above the sea level. With deep blue water the lake looks mind blowing.

We booked it for a group of 40 students and Thrillophilia offered the best price and services as well. The campsite was big enough to accommodate the group and the tents were very comfortable for the stay. They provided us with tasty food and we even got to eat pasta there which we didn’t expect. There were four guides with us and all of them were friendly. We had a great experience there and Thanks to Thrillophilia for it.

We visited there in winters and the entire trekking trail was covered with snow. We had never witnessed snow in our life and it was just amazing seeing it for the first time. The best part was on Day second we had snowfall at Prashar Lake and the feeling was undefinable. We had the best time there and were very happy with the experience. A must visit trek in winters.

We heard a lot about this trek from our friend and finally decided to go for it. We visited there in early September and it was covered with lush greenery because of the rainfall. It looks so beautiful and peaceful.
