I was expecting a simple trek, but this seemed to be a dicey and challenging one. Most of my co-trekkers seemed to enjoy this and the overall service was good. We got enough time to explore Nagar town. Our base camp was very good and tents and sleeping bags were of very good quality. Amazing part of the trek was jeep ride as it give us opportunity to see beautiful mountains and landscapes.

There are large green feilds which gets covered with snow in winters.This lake actually lies between two mountainous peaks near Rohtaang pass. The kullu valley is home to beautiful old village and natures beauty. In this trip you will also see the apple orchads, finally trek ends in vashist.

I have never been to North India for a trek, but when I chose to go for the Bhrigu Lake Trek, I was more than happy. This was a very organized trek well handled by professionals. Everything was per promised and our guide was very helpful and approachable. May be food could have been more better.

Guide was friendly, but we struggled so hard to find the pick-up point. We arrived to the spot just in nick of time. The pick-up point was almost 4 kms away from our place of stay, and as we don’t speak the language we found it tough.

Bhrigu Lake Trek is something that can be taken either over a weekend or over 4-5 days. We opted to take this trek over a weekend as it was a summer trek for us. It was interesting to take it. The Bhrigu Lake Trek is one of the very few worthy lake treks available in our country. It was quite an interesting and a marvellous trek to take. We had a great time.

This was my first experience of trekking in. The Himalayas and let me tell you really awesome .the great Himalayas has always fascinated me... We were group of twenty young chaps, started from gulaba top ...there too lived in the tents which can be rented at very low cost its a better option to stay here a day or two before the trek to bhrigu lake rather than down in manali..the trek took us almost 8km all the way to top, and about 10 hrs, , all tiring reaching to the top..but what an amazing miracle to see bhrigu lake which never freezes, amazing natural marvel..a lake at 14500ft from sea level, almost like the Everest base camp..if u happen to climb just a little higher to the top you can see all the great pics of pir panjal and rob tang to valley also you would need a bare min climbing gear if u trek dying may-july.coming down is another fun , with the high ice slides on the way down.... I consider this as a personal achievement.

The best adventure thing to do in Manali within a break of 2 days is none but the Bhrigu Lake trek. Trust me, no other treks in this region can beat this trek. Just 2 days, easy climbs and descends, and you are done.
Starting from Mid May, till the month of September, 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.
Woolen cap Jackets Wind-cheater Socks(4 pairs) Thermal wear(1-2 pairs) Trekking shoes Snow gloves/normal gloves Sun glasses/goggles Lunch box, water bottle, spoon Sun-cream lotion. Personal medication Raincoat Torch and batteries Ruck Sack bag Glucon D and Mycoderm powder
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.
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.
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).
Trek April to May when it's quite comfortable (temperature ranges between 6 - 18°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 bhrigu lake temperature ranges between 1 - 6°C, visibility is excellent and there may be occasional snowfall.
Yes, this trek is an easy trek. But it makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a trekking holiday getting some additional exercise.
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.
This is an easy to moderate trek, good for first timers as well.
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. It will be ensure 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.
Consuming alcohol during any trek to the high altitudes will be really dangerous to your body. Also, alcohol will make you dehydrate fast since it makes the pores in the body open and get the cold inside. We will recommend you to avoid drinking alcohol during Bhrigu Lake trek also. Mostly all the trekking agencies prohibit the consumption of alcohol.
