The alpine pond of Bhrigu is located east of the renowned Rohtang pass. While on the course, you’ll witness practically every imaginable variation that a mid-altitude trail can provide. The pond’s name comes from Bhrigu Peak, which is located nearby. According to mythology, Maharishi Bhrigu of Saptarishi pondered just on the shore of this lonely and pure lake, which is located at 4160 meters (13645 feet) over sea level. For even more than part of the year, the tiny lake is iced. In the summertime, the joy of strolling on ice can be enjoyed by those on this trek. Come along on the Bhrigu Lake Trek!

The trail begins 12 kilometres outside of Manali, in Kulhan on Rohtang Road. To get to Moridugh, it first passes through a beautiful woodland of pine, maple, oak, and conifers. We proceed through beautiful green alpine meadows as we pass the tree line. Bhrigu lake Trekking invites you to visit it!
