  • Trip introduction

    This adventure trek takes you to an altitude of 13000 feet to see the sacred Bhrigu Lake. The lake itself lies in the middle of a beautiful green dale at the top of a mountain. You'll be atop a ridge, looking down at the valley floor where Manali lies, and at eye level with some of the most famous peaks in the region. It is ideal for the first time trekker or anyone looking for a quick mountain fix.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 6 pax is required to make a booking.

    Destination

    Breathe in the crisp mountain air and marvel at how far Manali is, far away below on the valley floor. You'll get up close to Hanuman Tibba, Shakarbeh and Makarbeh, amongst peaks. Lake Bhrigu is named after the Rishi Bhrigu who used to visit to meditate here, and when you reach, you'll feel a bit zen yourself. The whole hillside is covered in snow during the season, but when it melts, wildflowers spring up to carpet the slopes around.

    Destination highlights

    Climb up to Bhrigu ridge and get a view of the valley beneath | Camp in clearings in pine forests | Get a real-life view of craggy peaks like Hanuman Tibba | Take a dip in the therapeutic waters of Vashisht hot springs
