ABOUT BHRIGU LAKE


A lot of trekkers do the Bhrigu Lake trek for the lake steeped in mythology. 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.
This trek lies in Himachal Pradesh, around 20 km north of Manali and can be accessed from Mori Dugh and Gulaba. To enter an alpine meadow in our country, one has to often spend at least a day or two trekking within the tree line. We are talking about two or three days of hard ascent. This is because most alpine meadows start at around 11,000 ft. above the tree line. 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 tree line, almost as if to greet you. From these grassy Mountain, 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. Unending meadows on the Bhrigu Lake trek peppered with birch and cedar forest.
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.
