About the Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund:
Bhrigu Lake is the high altitude glacial lake at the height of 14,100 ft. It is said that thousand year ago, Maharishi Bhrigu used to meditate near this pristine lake & hence it is named after him. The beauty of the lake is different in every season, In winters it is frozen, In the early summer you will find small glacial pieces floating in the lake and in summer & spring the lake becomes blue and keep on changing its color every hour of the day.
Beas Kund is a high altitude thousand-year-old alpine lake that sits royally amidst the mountains of Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of 3,810 meters.

The temperatures are extremely low up there so make sure you are covered well.

Two of the most beautiful lakes in North India are the Beas Kund and Bhrigu Lake. Both of them are located in the middle of cherish-able location. I am a solo traveler and I have been visiting many places in North India continuously for last five years. Some places I have visited more than 3 times in these five years. But Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund Lake were missed until last January when the climate was adverse to do trekking or a visit to the many places in North India. The lakes were also filled with snow. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. But sad about the fact that I could not enjoy the real beauty of these lakes when water is blue and the surrounding is green, completely. I went till the base point by my bike and then I met some group from Mumbai doing trekking and they were camping there. I asked them about the routes and all and they were also yet to start trekking. So I though I just join them while trekking and stay will be arranged myself somewhere near. Anyway I had my bike with me. Hence I was not worried about the stay. Also there was a chance to get tents at the base. The steep climbs were actually challenging me and I was eagerly waiting for the whole night on my arrival day to conquer those climbs at a fast pace. It was my nineteenth trekking trip to the Himalayas. It was equally challenging as some other treks I have done in Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir. I reached till 14000 feet height and from the top, the whole region looked so glamorous. Honestly. It was the most scenic location in Himachal Pradesh. Both the lakes have special features. But the ice sheets on them did not let me enjoy its real beauty well. May be the next time, I will be able to go there during the time both of them are in their real colours. But guys, try this trekking trip. You will be amused.

Adventure is hidden throughout the ways to Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund. It was short trip for us. Just four days but we had the maximum fun. We went through Thrillophilia.com and they helped us enjoy the trip even though we selected only four days. The accommodation and food were better than we expected. Last time when we went to Kashmir, the food was really bad. But this one was fine. We are thankful to the guides who came with us. We are from South India and Hindi is not so good. But we could communicate with the guides well. All of them were Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. But we became close within a short time. There were not many people in the group. Since we booked only for four days, we were asked to join them from the second day of the original trip and on the fourth day we visited Beas Kund together and the other group was taken again back to continue the trip. We are very thankful to them for co-operating with us throughout the trip. If we had more time, we would have continued the trip. Unfortunately, we got only four days. We will be booking through the same platform next time also as we are very happy with the service we got from the time of booking the package to the end day of the trip.

Awesome times spent with family and friends. The height of 11.000ft might seem difficult at first but later as you get used to the efforts and the stunning sights you will realise that each step you take is totally worth it! Good job done by the people organising the trek.

Had amazing times and experience during this trek. Done some treks before, but this one is one of its kind as it is suitable for almost everyone. Make sure, you pack your trekking commodities properly and avoid carrying extra weights with you.

This was by far the most life changing trek I've been on, the breathtaking views, endless lands and the beautiful river all added to it. The trek was not very hard so everyone can do it. I recommend this trek as the ultimate getaway.
Starting from Mid May, till the month of October, trekking to Bhrigu Lake is absolutely allowed and travelers can plan accordingly. However the ideal time is before the month of June and after August since this is the monsoon time and there remains the probability of landslides in the region.
This trek is fairly easy. But it makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a trekking holiday getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. For this trip you need to be aerobically fit and also comfortable with walking up to 7 hours on some days.
Below mentioned is the list of essentials that you should carry while you trek to Beas Kund-Trekking shoes and a pair of extra socks.
-Sunscreen and Mosquito repellent.
-A cap or a hat.
-First Aid Kit.
-A comfortable backpack, water bottles, and energy food.
-A pair of sunglasses and a decent camera.
-Toiletries and other basic necessities.
-An extra set of warm clothes.
You should carry high-ankle trekking shoes. Different shoes are suitable for different kinds of treks, depending on the weather, trail condition as well as duration of the trek. For this particular trek, shoes with thick souls are recommended.
The total distance between Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund is approximately 47 km which is doable in a span of 4 active days. On this trek, you can witness a combination of snow, meadows, alpines, and other scenic wonders of nature.
From 14,000 feet above the ground, you can take a look at paradisiacal vistas and feast your eyes.
There are proper meals with subsequent nutritional values planned for the people coming in for the trek. From dinner on Day 1 to Breakfast on the last day, all meals will be provided. This would include nutritional vegetarian meals, with the addition of tea and coffee during breaks.
Carrying medicines is important while trekking anywhere in the world. Your first-aid should have anti-diarrhea medicine such as loperamide but make sure that you don't take it unless getting to a toilet isn't an option.
During the trekking, you may not have access to pharmacies. So it’s better to have medications ready. Yes, you can carry diamox and can be taken too if having sickness/nausea.
Speaking of the November month, the mercury bar drops down to about -7 degrees celsius and the days are slightly warmer. Apart from this, the entire region is snow-covered and the meadows are adorned with trails of lush green alpines.
Indian mobile networks do not work for most part of this trek. Vodafone and BSNL are the only mobile networks that work in patches along the way (but are inconsistent).
Planning for a Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund trek is an easy one as you head to Solang Valley which is located in Manali. From here, your next point is Gulaba from where the trek to the Bhrigu meadows lake trek begins.
You need 4 active days for this trek to complete the circuit.
Trek April to May when it's quite comfortable (temperature ranges between 6 - 12°C) and the flowers like rhododendrons, orchid, primula are in full bloom. In May however there are chances of occasional showers and the sky remaining cloudy at times.
The second season is between October to November when the temperature ranges between 1 - 6°C, visibility is excellent and there may be occasional snowfall.
Yes, this trek is an easy to moderate level trek. But it makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a trekking holiday getting some additional exercise.
The weather is not much pleasing this month but if you love summers then you can book the Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund Trek in March. At this time, the mercury meter ranges between 20 to 28-degree Celsius and one can explore the scenic meadows.
The temperature of this place during summers hovers around 20-25C in the daytime and falls to 5-7C at night. In winter the temperature gets lower with 10-15C around daytime and nearly 0 to -7C at night. Almost half a year the lake remains frozen, and travelers can enjoy the sight of snow even during the early summer time.
The Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund Trek is easy to moderate trek. This trek is great for beginners as well. Anyone who is physically fit can easily do the trek without any difficulty. But if you want then you can do some jogging and exercises and get ready for the trek.
We will cover anywhere between 8-15kms a day barring the days left out for sightseeing, travelling and other tourist activities.
For girls, trekking is extremely safe and it's ensured that they're safe during the entire trek. If there is only one girl in the trip, then she will be provided with single tent to sleep alone. If there are more girls, then they can sleep under one tent.
Always make sure that you are never left on your own. Understand your pace and be with the group.
The maximum altitude we will trek upto will be close to 12,500ft.
