How to reach Prashar Lake from Mandi Town if You Do Not Have Your Own Vehicle?

Yes, I was riding solo via Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike. I started the journey from Shri Naina Devi Temple, Bilaspur reached Nandli Village in 6 hours total journey time covering 158 km.

An accommodation search was done. Homestay preferred at Nandli Village – approx 18 from Mandi Town situated at Mandi – Prashar road. Prashar Lake is a further 30 km from Nandli Village.

What if one does not having own vehicle to reach Prashar Lake from Mandi town?

Upon the query, Deepak (0-9805371061 / 7807471061), the owner of Sri Prashar Home Stay (Nandli Village) said – Do not worry. Bus service is available nowadays from Mandi town bus depot for Prashar Lake early in the morning between 7:00 – 8:00 am. It might be a 2:30 – 3 hours journey. This bus same day returns in the afternoon hours. If the only bus is missed then another bus for Kandalu Village and then 10-12 km of trekking Or, bus for Bagi Village and then you have to hire a jeep from Bagi Village (even from Kandalu Village) for Prashar Lake.

Jeep hiring charges may be Rs. 2000 from Mandi Town to Prashar Lake to and fro Or, you may reach Kandalu Village by bus and then hire a jeep.

Thank you Deepak for enhancing my knowledge – said I.

The next day, I re-started the journey by Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike from Nandli Village with Manoj – caretaker of the Homestay at 4:30 am reached Prashar Lake at 6:15 am – 30 km approx. 2 hours journey because of the last 20 km not so good road condition though after crossing Nandli village road construction work was going on.
