ODIA CA. Sudhir Kumar Dash successfully summits Mount Parashar in Himachal Pradesh, India

Read Time:3 Minute, 9 Second

Mount Parashar is a mini-Switzerland in India

8km Strenuous Trekking on 5-10 ft deep snow for a continuous 8-hour struggle is worthy of achieving it

ODIA CA. Sudhir Kumar Dash has this rare achievement

February 19: Mount Parashar is located above 10,000 ft from sea level is the rare beauty of Himachal Pradesh, India. Situated 45 km from Mandi towards the North is famous for the Parashar Lake. It is believed that the Lake is the Holy Place of Saint Parashar, who worshipped there and wrote the Holy Astrology Book there. The Lake is unique, having a floating Iceland in it.

Come winter; the whole mountain is covered in deep and heavy snowfall. At many places, more than 20 ft of snow are found. The connecting route is just invisible. Due to the adverse weather and no support infrastructure, the local authorities declare it unsafe and restrict visits and trekking. One has to do with a life and death really experience to reach there.

Amazed by the abundant beauty and the challenge of the height and elevation, CA. Sudhir Dash led his two companions to the Top. On the fateful 6th February 2022, we started from the base village Baggi. From Baghi to the Top of Mt. Parashar is an 8 km track covering river beds, bushy lanes and rocky uphills covered with deep snow.

On the way, we were at times panicked for no sight of any life and human habitats. Finding the deserted mud house for animal shelter and sheltering there for a few minutes, We had our share of the struggle, especially in the last leg of 3 kilometres, with deep snow and 90 degrees uphill with complete unaware ways. You have to check the depth of the snow and create a point to place your foot a step ahead. The other just have to follow the step left by the lead. Many place its life and death challenge, yet the surrounding beauty and the zeal to reach all costs kept us motivated. The moment of getting to the Top is an experience of a lifetime. We were lucky that we didn’t have to face any rain that day. The Parashar lake is barely 500 ft from the Top; we had a visit there to pay our homage to the Lord Parashar Temple.

One night spent there in the Forest Guesthouse, with the sole member up keeper Mr. Veer Singh with no electricity and light is a memory of a lifetime. The Have moon and bright stars were enough good light available. Thanks to the reflection in glazing snow all around.

The struggle didn’t end here; coming down the next day was more dreadful, as it became more slippery with hard snow on the step marks left by us. Carrying the bodyweight while coming down is way too risky but thank God we survived with minor falls at a few places.

We have seen in various travel blogs the scenic beauty of Switzerland. Must we mention here, this place is far way ahead beautiful with the demographic surrounding. Tall trees, high mountains, natural springs, and the unbelievable frozen Parashar lake is a poetic beauty to make you lose in total attraction.

Visiting Parashar Lake is no costly affair; local Bus Connectivity is there till the Village Baghi. Interstate bus services are available to the Commercial towns of Mandi in Hamachal Pradesh. Baghi is barely 25 km from Mandi.

We are so touched by the place that we will love to visit once every year for the beauty and, of course, not to forget the Oxygen Therapy for free worth millions of Dollars.

My adventure is unnatural of a CA but not unbecoming of a CA, laughingly says CA. Sudhir Kumar Dash.

  1. Your cart is currently empty. This is what Maybelline says about Lash Sensational Mascara: “Introducing LASH SENSATIONAL – our unique, open-fan brush and fresh liquid formula capture and volumize lashes from root to top“. I moved from my right eye to my left and then went in for another coat on my right eye, but it looked like the mascara was starting to clump a little bit. I am not an expert at applying mascara, but I gave it another swipe to try to separate my lashes as much as possible — and it helped! Overall, it actually felt a bit easier to use than my normal mascara because the bristles are not poking me in the eye. In fact, I didn’t poke myself in the eye once with this! Forgot your password? Using the likes of shimmery eyeshadow, long lashes and a rosy-pink lip colour, Johnson’s look in the show offers a clean and modern feel, though with a touch of romance, and this is what you’ll need to recreate it: https://pipstario.com/forums/profile/nestorpontiff81/ The best white face paint should not only go on smoothly, but also have a high pigment concentration, along with being able to withstand tough conditions – like the Mehron white face paint. In this video, you will learn how to take your bare face and completely transform it to a ghostly, floating skeleton head — yikes! Even if you have never tried to do Halloween face makeup before, this one is definitely doable The public attitude towards ‘painting’ one’s face was mixed. At the French court, no one would have been caught dead without a thick face of makeup, but England was more conservative, and the English generally thought it inappropriate for younger women to paint their faces. In Maria Edgeworth’s 1801 novel Belinda, we are supposed to feel pity and contempt for the aging socialite Lady Delacour when she tells the young eponymous heroine, ‘but you don’t paint – no matter – you will – you must – every body must, sooner or later’.
