Create an itinerary including Bhrigu Lake
Marvel at a partially frozen surface of Bhrigu Lake, located at the end of a challenging Himalayan hike. At around 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level and surrounded by snow-covered slopes, the lake offers fabulous views of local scenery. The trek, a popular activity with nature lovers and adventurers, takes visitors through a verdant forest of fir, spruce, and birch, as well as across lush meadows. Close to the Rohtang Pass, the lake is nestled among high rugged peaks and, according to local legend, never freezes completely because its waters are sacred.

  • Visit date: 14-May-2022 Bhrigu lake trek was my 1st Himalayan trek & I am happy that I chose this place for my 1st trek. We got to witness the beautiful blend of snow and greenery during the trek. The trek seems to be of easy to moderate level. The trek has the best view of meadows. The trek is mostly through the forests and meadows. I was fortunate enough with a good & motivating guide. Hence, I could successfully complete my trek. It would be great if you read the importance of this place before visiting. Happy Trekking❤️
  • Awesome place at an altitude of 4300m. We went in monsoon season and as a consequences, trek became very difficult. Very low visibility due to fog and we mired down. Very cold wind was also blowing so we stayed at Lake for like 10 sec.
