I was expecting a simple trek, but this seemed to be a dicey and challenging one. Most of my co-trekkers seemed to enjoy this and the overall service was good. We got enough time to explore Nagar town. Our base camp was very good and tents and sleeping bags were of very good quality. Amazing part of the trek was jeep ride as it give us opportunity to see beautiful mountains and landscapes.

I have never been to North India for a trek, but when I chose to go for the Bhrigu Lake Trek, I was more than happy. This was a very organized trek well handled by professionals. Everything was per promised and our guide was very helpful and approachable. May be food could have been more better.

Guide was friendly, but we struggled so hard to find the pick-up point. We arrived to the spot just in nick of time. The pick-up point was almost 4 kms away from our place of stay, and as we don’t speak the language we found it tough.

Bhrigu Lake Trek is something that can be taken either over a weekend or over 4-5 days. We opted to take this trek over a weekend as it was a summer trek for us. It was interesting to take it. The Bhrigu Lake Trek is one of the very few worthy lake treks available in our country. It was quite an interesting and a marvellous trek to take. We had a great time.

We had a great trip to bhrigu lake and the presence of friends made it even more memorable. Journey begins from Manali and this lake falls between Manali to Rohtaang pass, about 14 kilometers from gulaba. And gulaba is readched after crossing palchan, kothi and kolang. Trekking suits everyone since it is easy and short trek, sight seeing is the biggest merit of the trip. The green grounds are available too for your camping needs. While reaching Bhrigu lake trek you will encounter many dhabas. over all it was a fantastic option.

It was a fantastic trekking experience... we enjoyed to our fullest. The bhrigu lake has many religious importance also and the blu color lake looks so beautiful. Talking about trekking then it is best suited for beginners and family trekking can also be considered here. The Rohtang pass is near the lake moreover you can also spot other glacial lake in the kullu valley. Trekking on such high peaks feels like an acheivement, it is almost 12000 feet . The half snow covered peaks seems perfect for the adventure. we had set up our camps on flat grounds of rola kholi. Each morning we saw the best sunrise ever. so overall it was just awesome.

it is a short 3-4 days trekking on the beautiful mountainous trails of the himalays. It is just awesome to see the beautiful blue color lake in sunny day, it shines like pearls. Even the mountains looks awesome as if have wore a snow monkey cap... you can spot these snow covered peaks on the second day of trekking. in winters the top surface of the lake frozes and looks like small patches of islands of snow. The lake is of oval shape and its very large. Rola kholi campinv turn outs to be a perfect campsite.
