Lakes are an integral part of the Himachal landscape and its tourism. Some are millions of years old, formed due to the Tectonic movements, and others are relatively new. These perennial lakes are also different in character. If one lake is frozen throughout the year, others are still hot geysers where the temperature reaches 50 degrees Celsius. Dashir Lake in Manali is situated at a high altitude and is one of the most beautiful lakes found in the Himachali region. Located near Rohtang pass (which connects the Kulu district with Lahaul), this lake is a veritable treasure trove for nature lovers. Crystal clear cobalt water makes you see right through the lake. The scenery in the backdrop is equally majestic. Rugged mountain cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and small Himachali settlements nestled amidst the valleys provide a stark contrast with the din and bustle of Manali.
Dashir Lake is held as pious by the locals, and the lake's water is believed to be curative. The depth of the lake is three to four meters. Check out the pile of rocks lying with geometrical precision at the foot of Dashir Lake. Be careful not to spoil the arrangement or carry off one of these rocks as the locals deem ominous. Dashir Lake can be reached by the Manali highway. Hire a cab from Manali and move towards Rohtang Pass. The lake is but a few minutes drive from Rohtang.
