• Trip introduction

    Known for its generous display of natural beauty and its ability to reach such a high altitude at such a short span of time, this 4-day Bhrigu Lake trek is a perfect adventure for beginners looking for a quick escape. You'll trek through oak and cedar forests, lush green meadows, carpets of alpine flooring and gushing streams. All along the route, there are views of the snow-capped peaks of the Seven Sisters, Deo Tibba and Hanuman Tibba and the outstretched Pir Panjal ranges!

    The lake itself is a sacred spot, as the sage Bhrigu is believed to have meditated here.


    Situated in the upper Kullu Valley of Garhwal Himalayas, Bhrigu Lake is at 14100 feet, gleaming in the sunlight, and serene all day long. You'll start from the beautiful Gulaba, and trek through Rohli Kholi before reaching Bhrigu Lake. You will then travel to Pandu Ropa and Vashist before making it back to Manali. You'll be camping in alpine meadows, walking past small streams and through pine forests.
