View of Manali Valley with Cumulus Clouds from Bhrigu Lake Trek

Bhrigu Lake Trek


The formidable Himalayan ranges of Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar encircle the Beas Valley. The environment above the tree line, from 2900 to 4500 meters, consists of vast alpine meadows with lofty snow-clad mountains dominating the background. These meadows are home to several sacred mountain lakes, which according to local traditions are the dwelling of the mountain Gods and have a significant religious and cultural value among the local traditional mountain people. Bhrigu Lake trek allows you to explore one of these lakes.
