With the intent of staying closer to nature and staring at mountainous landscapes for hours together, we thought of going on a Himalayan trek. After a lot of research and keeping in mind our physical abilities, we zeroed in on the Bhrigu Lake trek.
Why the Bhrigu Lake trek?
We had planned to go on a trek in August, which narrowed down our choices to monsoon treks in Himalaya. One of the most important considerations was the difficulty level of the trek. Since this was our first high-altitude trek, we decided to stick to the easy-moderate difficulty level. We also did not want to spend more than three to four days on the trek because this being our first trek, we knew that we’ll need to prepare ourselves physically for the kind of endurance these treks demand.
Given our preferences, the trek that tick-marked all of them was the Bhrigu Lake trek and it took us no time to make up our mind as it also offered a view of lush green meadows throughout the journey. We all have heard or seen people going on and on about how beautiful Switzerland is and this is primarily because of the meadows which are an integral part of the country. Although such beautiful meadows can be witnessed without too much of an ascent (8,000 feet) during the Bhrigu Lake trek.
