Trekking to high-altitude glacial Lakes in itself is quite adventurous and manages to catch the interest of every hiker. Usually, these high altitudes lakes are difficult to reach and need days of hiking and crossing difficult terrains, before the sight of the lake can be cherished. But all these tough complications can be kept at bay with the beautiful Bhrigu Lake Trek in the upper Kullu Valley based on the eastern side of the famous Rohtang pass in Himachal Pradesh. This is an ideal weekend hiking trip promising loads of entertainment for both beginners as well as experienced hikers. Nestled at an altitude of 14,000 ft the Bhrigu Lake Trek offers fascinating natural vistas and breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains, lush meadows ad verdant rich forests

We’ll drive to Gulaba, halfway up the Rothang Pass, and start the trek from the roadside. It’s the steady ascent of 700m and will give everyone the chance to stretch their legs into the groove. Throughout the day we’ll have great views of the peak Hanuman Tibba(5980m)massif. We camp on the atmospheric bowl of Raulikhoi.

Today’s trekking will take us once more onto the high plateaus above the Kullu Valley. We start the day with an ascent up to Bhrighu Lake (4280m). Another isolated spot, the lake nestles under it’s own peak which stands at 45550m and offers great views once again. We’ll climb to the top of Bhrighu Peak before starting our journey back towards the valley floor. We’ll camp just above the tree line and have a last chance to savior the magnificent views. After staying at Bhrigu Lake for a couple of hours we start the trek back down to Moridug. Tonight we will be spending our night at the same campsite and tomorrow we head back to Vashisht from where we started our trek.

We have a steep descent to finish the trek today. The trail winds its way through the various types of vegetation on offer in the valley and as we get closer to the village of Vashisht will hopefully see some of the area's wonderful wildlife. Snow cocks, monals, and khaji pheasants are some of the many birds around, and above there are sure to be plenty of eagles and vultures gliding effortlessly through the sky. Vashisht is famous for its natural hot spring and upon arriving in the village we’ll head straight for a relaxing bath. The perfect way to end the trek.
