Bhrigu Lake is a high altitude lake located in the district of Kullu, about 40 kilometres away from Manali. The route to the lake passes through entrancing meadows which are also called the Bhrigu Lake Meadows. Not many tourists know about the beautiful meadows that can be compared with the alpine meadows found at high altitude locations like Switzerland.
As one walks through the expansive stretch of grasslands amidst snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, they are bound to feel like they have entered a different world altogether. Those who constantly search for locations to escape the city life, traffic and pollution, Bhrigu Lake is the place for them.
It takes about 6 hours to reach the enrapturing Bhrigu Lake from Gulaba Village. The name Bhrigu is derived from the name of Maharishi Bhrigu. A salient characteristic of the lake is that it never freezes entirely during winters. According to a legend, the lake never freezes completely because Maharishi Bhrigu meditated near it. Campers can set a camp near Bhrigu Lake and spend some leisure time with friends and family while trekking to the lake. Most of the tourist season, the region has clear blue skies during the day. The gentle warmth of the sun during a clear day makes the walk a pleasant one. Night skies are a special treat for campers and night gazers.
Essential Tips : 1. Wear appropriate trekking gear and carry material essential for camping.
2. Although some trek solo for the thrill, it is advisable that tourists trek or camp in groups preferably with a trekking/adventure company.
3. June to August is monsoon season in Manali. Tourists are advised to avoid the monsoons as the region is susceptible to landslides.
4. If trekking with a trekking/adventure company, the company charges will apply.
