There is a sacred lake known as the Parashar lake, and it is located on a hillside not too far away from the Baggi hamlet in the Mandi area. This lake, which is located at an elevation of 2730 metres above mean sea level, was commissioned to be built by the wise man known as Parashar. A temple that overlooks the water and was almost certainly built some time around the 13th century may be found there.
People make their home on a moving island that's located in one of the local lakes. Island movements help residents predict weather conditions and prepare for the worst, and despite the different rumours that are spreading, very few people genuinely believe that it hasn't altered in three months. This is despite the fact that the rumours are circulating.
According to a myth handed down through the generations, the lake's water level has supposedly remained same for all of these years. There does not appear to be any other source of water for the lake. The lake in the Himachal Pradesh area is encircled by mountains that are covered with snow for the better part of the year. There are several magnificent mountains that can be seen, including Indrasan, Deo Tibba, and others. An excellent weekend climb located close to both Delhi and Chandigarh.
About the itinerary, first day of the trek will be a journey from Mandi to Baggi and Parashar Lake. Try to get to Mandi by 6 o'clock in the morning. Get cleaned up, because you'll be driving for little under two hours to reach Baggi village, the trailhead. From the Mandi bus terminal, our company will be driven to the village of Baggi. Take it easy and begin the journey to Parashar Lake. The entire journey is eight kilometres long and the path goes through thick woods.
The first part of the trail goes through a rocky section with a few small creeks. When crossing streams, tread carefully because the stones are still wet and slippery. In approximately half a kilometre, you'll emerge into the forest, marking the beginning of your adventure. The entire hike is uphill and takes you through some really thick forest. A tiny meadow awaits you after a steep five-kilometer ascent, and it's a great spot to rest and take it easy.
From the meadow, you may get your first glimpse of snow-covered peaks. The trail appears more difficult after this meadow. The trip to the lake often takes between four and five hours. Pristine grasslands surround the lake, adding to its natural beauty. A pagoda-style temple may be found along the water. After arriving there, visit the lake and the temple.

After a distance of about half a kilometre, you will come out of the clearing and into the forest, which will signal the beginning of your journey.
