This lake has infinite depth & island keep changing its location.

How to Reach Prashar Lake?
We reached diurectly and took aroudn 13 hours with 1 small break. It was around 550 Km from Gurgaon and aroudn 3 hours from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh. But roads were very bad for about 5 km before the lake. (March 2017)

We have got a room inside the temple at Rs 150 per room and it was really great experience. However there were no washroom attached but you could walk up to go to toilet.
