Located at an altitude of 14,100 feet, Bhrigu lake is a high-altitude Himalayan lake near Manali. The lake is said to be sacred as it is believed that Maharishi Bhrigu used to meditate near the lake. Bhrigu lake trek is also famous for its grasslands that stretch out as far as eyes can see. That’s why this trek is the most captivating short trek in the Himalayas.

On your Bhrigu lake trek package, you’ll enter the lush alpine meadows right after 15 mins of trek which looks like an endless green carpet. Pass through the trail covered with cedar, birch, and brown oak trees. The lake rests between two high-altitude ridges and offers stunning panoramic views of Mt Hanuman Tibba, Deo Tibba, Indrasen, along with Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges.
