Parashar Lake Trek is one of the most beautiful and must-do treks up in the north of India. Being a relatively easy yet rewarding trek, Parashar Lake is a trek you must do before tourism traffic hits. The Lake is famously known for the floating island in it. But that’s a common phenomenon, you would say. Hold on though, for the surprise doesn’t end just yet. The miniature floating island happens to float along the circumference of the lake which is something you must watch out for. Another thing you must do when you visit Parashar Lake is to ask around for its depth. You’d be surprised to know that despite many attempts, the actual depth of this lake hasn’t been figured out yet! Now some do say, the reason behind this has got to be in the amusing climate and topology of Parashar Lake, while the others believe it’s got to do with mythology.

Now-now, we know you love stories so here’s one for you- Myths say that the lake was formed by the ram of Bheem’s elbow when he and his brothers along with Lord Kamrunag were returning from Kurushetra. Lord Kamrunag was so enticed by this valley that he decided to live there forever. Bheem being the righteous man he was, rammed his elbow into the mountain creating the lake for Lord Kamrunag. Rishi(Sage) Parashar is said to have meditated at this lake which gave birth to this name.

The destination spot has more than a lake to offer. If you’re an architecture lover, you must visit the Parashar Temple which is an epitome of abundant Himachal architecture. The Temple is one from the 13th Century, made by Raja Bank Sen in honor of Rishi Parashar.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited

They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
