One of the most colourful and indiscreet cities of India, Varanasi is one of the seven holiest cities for the Hindus. Also known as Kashi and Benaras, this place is known for its temples, ghats and the colourful people. The narrow alleys and crowded streets seem to be extremely blissful in spite of all the noise and chaos all around. People come here just to take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Varanasi is also known as Uttar Kashi and is situated on the western banks of the Ganges. It is said that a dip in this river frees one from a lifetime of sins. People even say that death here is auspicious as people attain moksha if they die here. Some people also come here tp creamate their loved ones and the sound of the holy temple bells are really soothing music to the ears.
For some the trek to bhrigu lake starts from 14 mod near Gulaba whereas some decide to start the trek from Kothi. It is a steep uphill climb from Kothi to Gulaba Village but gives amazing scenic beauty as the trek passes from dense tree cover and opens up at certain points to give sights of the beautiful mountains including the peak Hanuman Tibba.
