The Bhrigu Lake trek takes you across a range of trails, beginning from a simple hike through dense forests and ending with a steep trek over glimmering white snow and ice. As you approach the lake, you'll see a panorama of green, snow-capped mountains dominating the horizon, a mesmerizing view for all trekkers. The lake itself naturally changes from an emerald green pond lined with blooming wildflowers in the summer, to a frozen white sheet with a blanket of snow in the winter.
The Bhrigu Lake trek involves climbing over steep inclines, especially on the day when you visit the lake. This moderate intensity trek is perfect for fit and healthy beginners looking for a challenge.
The Bhrigu Lake is named after Maharishi Bhrigu, one of the seven great sages in Hindu mythology. The sage is said to have meditated on the banks of this crater-shaped lake and bathed in its cold waters. Trekkers to Bhrigu Lake often mark the first time they see the lake as the most memorable event of the entire trek. En route, the narrow mountain trail, which often throws up interesting challenges, rewards your efforts with sweeping views of the valley, with nearby peaks like Hanuman Tibba and Friendship Peak rising above the landscape.
