Bhrigu is a high-altitude mountain lake hidden between the big mountains of Himachal. The best part about this trek is you gain an ambitious altitude of almost 14000 ft on the second day of your trek which usually is attained on fourth or fifth day of any other Himalayan trek. The meadows of Rola Kholi and the grand views of Pir panjal and Dhauladhar range makes this a perfect package for all kinds of trekkers. No other trek will give such easy access to a far stretched alpine meadows coupled with a skyline dominated by famous Himalayan peaks like Hanuman Tibba, Friendship Peak, Indrasan and Deo Tibba.
