The best time to do the Dashir lake trek is from late May to early October when the weather is mild and the views are stunning, In summer the weather is warm and the days are long. This is also the busiest time of year for tourists, so be sure to book your trip in advance. During the rainy season, it is always advised to do this trek you see flowers blooming and lush green forest and meadow, While in winters the Rohtang pass remains closed and the weather is so cold that the lake water freezes making this a bad idea during the winters.

The best route for the Dashaur lake trek

First: The best trekking route of Dashaur lake is from machi last mod 7 kilometers away from marhi, where you can start this trek, you will see Majestic and beautiful view of the valley and surrounded snow-capped mountains, we consider this route as the best route of the trek. 

Second: we can also do this trek from Rohtang Pass Beas temple, but in this route trail is a very steep and narrow path to cross rocky and Avalanche areas to reach this lake, we don't consider this route as the best trekking route of Dashaur Lake. 

Reaching Dashir lake is well worth the effort, as it's a truly beautiful and serene place. Be sure to spend some time exploring the surrounding area, as there are many hidden gems to be found.
