Tour overview

A lot of trekkers do the Bhrigu Lake trek (Read: A Photo story of the Surreal Bhrigu Lake Trek)
for the lake steeped in mythology. This trek lies in Himachal Pradesh, around 20 km north of
Manali and can be accessed from Gulaba.

It is known as the place where the famous saint Maharishi Bhrigu sat in deep meditation.
However, we believe the lake is not the only thing the trek has to offer. You must do the Bhrigu
Lake trek for its grasslands.

To enter an alpine meadow in our country, one has to often spend at least a day or two trekking
within the treelined. We are talking about two or three days of hard ascent. This is because most
alpine meadows start at around 11,000ft above the treelined.

However, on this trek, you are in the meadows within the first 10 minutes of this trek! Imagine
having meadows such as these right in your backyard. No wonder we go gaga over landscapes
that are seen in places like Switzerland.

The meadows on the Bhrigu Lake trek stretch far and wide – almost like an endless carpet. Wild
horses gallop around you. The grazing sheep look up when you come out of the treelined, almost
as if to greet you.

From these grassy knolls, you will see the mountains of Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar dominating
the skyline.

This is your garden in the sky. In the months of July to September, you’ll see the meadows at
their lushest green. You’ll spot wildflowers everywhere.

The meadows change texture, shape, and colour but stay with you all along the trek – right until
Bhrigu Lake. This is what makes the trek special. Getting a chance to be in such alpine
meadows all along a trek is a rare opportunity.

This four-day trek gives you a good idea of what Himalayan treks offer – meadows, glacial lake,
mountain views. Even though it is a short trek, it climbs to the daunting altitude of 14,000 ft. so
you experience the thrill of a climb as well.

With its easy access from Manali, it is a great trek to do for beginners or families looking to
explore the wilderness.
