    Road will likely be closed and you would have to trek around 7km from Baggi Village. FRH is officially closed for the season as there is no water and snow has to be melted to make water. You can talk to the caretaker at FRH and PWD Guest House and see if they will let you stay. Otherwise there is always temple dorm, which might be open.

    Hi, Thanx for prompt help, so that means we have to walk for 7km, but FrH and Pwd guest house will have somebody that's good news, otherwise we have to trek back, now I am thinking of looking here for some older thread which has a travelogue of trek to prashar lake

    You can try contacting Roop Singh at +91– 9418411746, he is the caretaker of FRH. Hopefully he hasn't yet been transferred. His son runs camps at Prashar, Neal Café +91-9459521851.

    It should be open at that time. However, everything depends on weather. So it is best to check with the caretaker, before setting off.

    Is home stay in good condition and does the caretaker provide blankets and food??
    Our group is unable to trust completely.

    Any lead will be helpful

    It isn't a home stay, it is a Forest Rest house. If it is open (closed during winter) and you have booking, you get a proper room with attached toilet. Caretaker does serve dinner or you can cook yourself.
