Dansar Lake

Dehna Sar or Dyna Sar is a crystal bowl

Dehnasar lake originates from the glacial slopes of Ghora Lotnu peak feeding this crystal bowl and it remains frozen until late July. Arguably, it is a part of the Bada Bhangal Range, an extension of the primary axis of Dhauladhar Himalaya.

Every year on ‘Bhadon Bees’ (20th of the month of Bhadon according to Hindu Calendar) pilgrims from Kullu, Kangra, and Mandi make arduous journeys to take a dip in this lake. It is believed that the monsoon starts receding by 20th of Bhadon and the medicinal effects of herbs is maximum in the glacial waters. A holy dip helps cure skin diseases.
