Prashar Lake with Tunga Mata trek
"Every travel with WANDERERS is an experience of a life time."
For this long Good-Friday weekend we have planned a trek to Tunga Mata temple from the famous Prashar lake. This would be an easy to moderate graded trek perfect for people who want to get an idea of what it feels to trek in the Himalayas.
We start this trek on the Thursday evening meaning you can reach for this after work hours.
We will be back to Delhi by night Sunday so that all could resume work on the Monday morning only to boast about the trek they just did...!!
