This was my first experience of trekking in the lap of Himalayas no doubt it was really awesome. It was my dream to visit such place and last month I had gone with my friends. The camping experience was very nice , we had some fun moments in evening in our camp that I still remember. We had veg foods there that was quite tasty. As far as trekking is considered, it was not easy but our tour guide made it simple.After a long trekking we reached a great heights and saw the very famous pir panjal and rob tang valley. The especiality of the bhrigu lake is that the lake never freezes and remains in same condition so it looks quite adorable. At might the temperatures goes too low. We really enjoyed the trip a lot.

The Brigu Lake is cradled in the ridges of Rhotang Pass which many have heard of. This lake is like a blue streak which would appease anyone. I had gone to Bhrigu Lake Trek on weekends with my cousins since it’s not too much taxing on your health and physical abilities but the best part is the camping grounds in Rola Kholi which is just 1 day away from Bhrigu Lake. The scenic topography is something that you would love to wake up to every morning. The next day we trekked to the snow-covered Bhrigu Lake and on our way up we took in the scintillating views of the Kullu Valley; an absolute treat for our eyes and mind.

Overview

About the Destinations:

Himachal Pradesh, or the abode of the clouds is known to be a paradise for the adventure junkies. Known for all its fascinating marvels and offerings, this scenic Indian state has become a hotspot for almost all sorts of adventure sports and activities.

Located in the Kullu District of Himachal, the Bhrigu Lake is one such destination that entices the trekkers like any other destinations in the country. Standing gracefully at a height of 14,100ft, this high altitude lake can be reached from Gulaba hamlet or the sacred Vashist Temple.

    The best trekking place for beginners I would say, it was my first trekking expedition with my friends and I felt was quite easy one, but there are some really though climbs that makes it difficult to trek. When we reached the height the viwes was unbelievable really, I had never seen such a beautiful place in my life. I still can’t forget my overnight camping, we laid our tents beside the lake,and it was too cold in the evening and night as well.

    It was my second trip to Manali and this time I enjoyed trekking also in Bhrigu lake.Though it was a tiring experience for me but it was a memorable one, actually a lot of guidance is needed while climbing up , since it has a lot of ups and down,even the trail is quite short. I still remember the awesome views from the peak.

    Within such a duration this can be the best choice for you if you are looking for a challenging trek. We enjoyed it a lot and any hard core trekker will love it for sure. Enough of challenges, obstacles, it also offers a lot of options to adore the beauty of Himachal Pradesh and its amazing hills and mountains.

    I am very fond of trekking expeditions , and I heard of this place from many people that it has some connections with Mahabharata. We visited the very famous pandurupa mountains, where its believed the pandavas stayed. This place the lake is with hot water in the middle of the ice mountain. A miracle. Its said the Rishi Bhrigu did his meditation for years. Thats why the water is hot spring in between the ice. And that is why the lake is called Bhrigu lake, just loved the view and trekking as well.

    This trek has a difficulty level medium and endurance level high. You climb a considerable height in less time and hence you need to be physically fit. The stretch that is to be covered on 2nd day has snow and ice when done even in June. Make sure you wear waterproof hiking boots else it gets too slippery. It is risky when it is slippery as a single slip can take you down the valley. Do with expert guides who have technical expertise.
