If you are looking forward to trek to a high altitude glacial lake, then this trek is ideal for you. Bhrigu Lake is a high altitude lake in Himachal Pradesh, located at a height of 4,300 meters (14,100 ft). Most of the high altitude lakes require at least 4-5 days of trekking, but Bhrigu Lake is just a 2-day trek from Manali.
Bhrigu Lake trek is towards the east of Rohtang pass in Manali and it is the best destination for all the nature lovers. In the midst of the trek you can see breathtaking views of Manali and Solang Valley; strolls over snow-covered path (in winters) till you reach the camp.
The most amazing factor of this trek is the changing color, shape and texture of the Bhrigu meadows and it stays with your entire journey. During the night, at the campground when there is peace surrounding, you can see the sky loaded with stars to such an extent that the stars are unmistakable more than the sky. You can try this sort of divine view just from an immense open ground from a height of around 11,000ft.
