Nestled at an elevation of 14,100 ft above sea level, the scenic oval shaped Bhrigu Lake is considered very pious especially by the natives of Kullu region. It is believed that Maharishi Bhrigu meditated here many years ago. Also, many Gods of Kullu Valley have dipped in this glacial lake, thus making it highly sacred. lake never freezes completely. You can see few beautiful lotuses along the lake as a symbol of faith.
11.Bhrigu Lake, Himachal Pradesh
This was the provocative day. We all woke up around at 7:30 A.M. Unfortunately 4 out of 8 members were only fit to go to the top with other 4 trainers. This trekking was fully covered on snow. Around 8:30 A.M. after breakfast (tea and poha) we left for it. Our group (Thy Adventure) was the first to leave for Bhrigu Lake. After trekking for first few km's, we saw a beautiful snowfall. It was my first and best snowfall experience. Further after trekking quite a while we encountered a very heavy snowfall. The weather was windy like hell. Nothing was visible. The temperature was decreasing abruptly. We were at 13500 ft. Somehow we managed to cover ourselves under the pillar of rocks. It was getting very steep. Finally we reached our most awaited destination "BHRIGU LAKE" around at 10:45 A.M. The view was exceptional, spectacular. I was at 14500 ft. It was unbelievable. It was as beautiful as heaven. I was relaxed and quietly observing the nature , the snow and this astonishing frozen lake. It was remarkable. We enjoyed and played with snow and clicked some wonderful pictures. Around 12:00 P.M. we started returning to our camps. I think trekking down on snow is a lot difficult than trekking up. Further I got stuck in a single place. The snow was very slippery and it was very difficult to trek and a single mistake could lead me to the ditch. Trainers were constantly motivating and helping us. Then here comes the twist. The best and unexpected part about returning was sliding mountain by mountain. This shortens our distance and time. Somehow we managed and finally I saw a glance of campsite. It was quite a relief and boosts my confidence. Around 3:00 P.M. we reached our camps. We were all dead tired. And in half an hour we had to leave for Gulaba. It was challenging. We waved goodbye to this wonderful place at 3:45 P.M. Then trekking down in greenery and rocks was easy. We finally reached Gualaba around at 6:00 P.M. covering 30 km's of trekking in a single day. I think that was record breaking. Our winger was waiting down there. We were totally exhausted. Finally we departed for our base camps.
A solo trek with unfamiliar faces to Lake Bhrigu in June!#tripoto #tripotocommunity
We were the last set of people who reached the lake. The air was getting thinner & we exactly hadn't taken a rich diet. Slight AMS had struck me. We reached @ 6.45 PM. The isolation, the silence & the beauty of the lake was mesmerising. I was here at last, I completed it. The feeling can't be described. You set your mind onto something & then you achieve it.
Named after maharishi Bhrigu, most trekkers attempt this trek to get to the famous Bhrigu Lake.

They stretch far and wide with the spellbinding sight of horses galloping and sheep grazing!Region: Himachal Pradesh | Highest Altitude: 14,009 ft | Difficulty: Moderate | Duration: 4 daysRead more about the Bhrigu Lake Trek here.

2. Bhrigu Lake Trek
At an elevation of 4300 m. This lake is situated approx 14. Km from gulaba . most of you might not heard about this place as you have to trek to visit this lake.
The lake is situated at a height of 14100 feet. The time i reached the lake it was frozen and had more than 50ft of ice over it. Being said that, there was no disappointment on finding the lake frozen as the snowclad mountains were breathtaking and gave amazing scenic beauty. The snow made the climb a little difficult and strenous without proper equipments, but it was worth it.
