An early start is what we planned but that could not happen due to late chats and uncomfortable sleeping bags ????. Trek leaders of other groups were not that motivating as they kept on telling us that Bhrigu lake is not possible this time and we should plan when there is no snow.
Well we had plans of our own and with the blessings of Lord Shiva we decided to move ahead. We started @10am from the campsite with packed lunch and other essentials.
The views were mesmerizing as the sunshine was at its peak.
Without wasting much time we kept on hiking and by 1PM we had already covered 60% of the trail. The entire trail was under thick blanket of snow and to make the matter worse the next 40% of the trail was not visible at all.
Our guide didn't wanted to take risk however we were well prepared for everything. Thus little discussions, some positive talks we finally decided to give it a go.
The plan was to start our return journey by 3PM wherever we were as time is the most crucial factor when you do such treks.
My younger brother lead the way this time as per the instructions from the guide and I followed them. Our other members stayed back to enjoy the sunshine.
The path was non existent and at some point there was knee deep snow, however with little courage and positive vibes around we continued further and reached Lake Bhrigu.
The lake was covered in thick blanket of snow and to our surprise there was no one apart from three of us. Yes you heard it right, we were the first group of the season to reach Bhrigu Lake.
We had the chance to click some pics of the route and the lake and as planned we started our return around 3:15PM.
