Dehnasar Lake lies at 4255 metres (13,960 ft) above mean sea level, in Kangra district. It is near Barot and Joginder Nagar in Mandi district. It is like a jewel of Himalayas situated in Chota Bhangal region at the borders of Kangra and Kullu.

Dehnasar Lake is a small and natural spot that is around 18 kms from Barot, while it is at a distance of 20 kms from Joginder Nagar, the nearest city to start the trek from. However, there is transportation available from Joginder Nagar to Polling, after which the actual trekking begins to Dehnasar Lake. As the trekking is quite moderate to climb, there are tourists who begin from Joginder Nagar itself.

Trekkers can choose the best route to trek as there are two trekking trails to reach the lake. You can choose the best one based on the level of difficulty. The first route begins from Joginder Nagar which passes through places like Barot, Lohardi, and Polling Village before reaching Dehnasar Lake. While the second trek begins from Joginder Nagar only but has only one stop in the mid that is Thaltukhod before you reach Dehnasar Lake.

People generally select the route from LohardiVillage, as it is the shortest route with the steep trek. The other route that passes through Thaltukhod is time-consuming as it is too lengthy with challenging upward slopes to tired you. The route takes a minimum of 3 days as you would have to cross valleys and passes like Kullu, Lag Valley, Sari Pass, etc. before you are at your desired place.

The lake is situated beside rocky cliffs at the top of the mountain and derives its water from melted snow. It lies frozen under a thick coat of snow during winters. Blizzards and hailstorms are common due to high altitude.

Joginder Nagar, the nearest major town, is 20 kilometers away from the lake, while Barot is 12 km away.


Temporary accommodations and tents are raised near the location of the lake during the pilgrimage season that falls in July to September every year. Shepherds are commonly sighted along the trek during pilgrimage, as well as rare herbs and flowers.

The base location to trek uphill towards the lake is at Polling village, 9 km northwards Barot which is accessible by road up to Lohardi. The moderately difficult, 14-km, uphill trek opens after June and closes after September.

Trekking via Lohardi is the most commonly used and shortest due to its steep gradient. The Thaltukhod trek is more lengthy and time consuming due to gentler slopes. The lake is approachable through another trek that starts from the opposite side of Kullu Valley. It can take more than 3 days to complete to and fro journey using this route.


According to the myth, the lake is home to the goddess Parvati, who is said to visit the lake in the Bhadrapada month of the Hindu calendar, which generally falls in August or September.
