Overview

Nestled at an altitude of 14,000 ft the Bhrigu Lake Trek offers fascinating natural vistas and breathtaking views of snow clad mountains, lush meadows and verdant rich forests. People with competent physical fitness can easily enjoy the privilege of hiking to the exclusive Bhrigu Lake even without previous hiking experience. This ideal hiking trip promises loads of entertainment for both beginners as well as experienced hikers.

The trip begins in Manali, where you will be spending your first day of the trip acclimatizing. For a better understanding of the route, a short briefing will also be conducted in which you will get proper information about the whats and wheres of the trek. The trek will begin on the second day when you will be transferred to Kulang, which is the starting point of Bhrigu Lake Trek. From here, a 5 to 6 hour long trek will be carried out to reach Mori Dugh. This will be the first campsite where you will spend the night.

The third day of this trip will begin with heading out from Mori Dugh and starting a trek for a Pandu Ropa for 5 to 6 hours. Once you are here, tents will be available. Food/snacks will be served on-site accompanied by fun games and a bonfire. The fourth day of the trek will finally take you to Bhrigu Lake from Pandu Ropa. After spending some time in Lake Bhrigu, you will start descending back to Pandu Ropa to spend the night.
