In the morning we found ourselves surrounded by towering mountains on all sides. We witnessed first sun rays peeping over towering Mt.Hanuman Tibba. Everyone wanted to capture this moment through their lens.
After some photography session we got ready, had breakfast and headed to Bhrigu lake.
The distance is 6 kms from campsite. Trail till lake was gradient but steep at some stretches. Beautiful mountain landscapes accompanied us along the way. Though trail is difficult but amazing vistas kept us walking.
The trickiest was the rugged & steep boulders section which is really challenging and by this time the weather turned out cloudy but we continued to hike submerging ourselves into the captivating landscape.
Clouds covered the valley very soon while we were crossing this section.
Stone cairns were lined up through out the trail till lake. Now trail turns into gradual climb for next couple of minutes & then again a steep climb for almost 30 minutes takes you to the beautiful and holy Bhrigu lake eventually. So it took us 3 hours to reach the lake.
About Bhrigu Lake
It’s a small emerald colored alpine lake located at an elevation of 4300 meters & surrounded by mountains. It is believed that Sage Bhrigu meditated here for many years and this is what makes it a sacred lake for locals.
We strolled around the lake and kept ourselves soaking in the beauty of captivating lake, there was a board informing that camping is not allowed by lake side. After staying for more than an hour we started our way back to Rola Kholi campsite.
Next Later in the evening, after dinner, our guide made a bonfire and we spent really good time chatting around it. This is how we called it a day and retired into our camps.
Next morning we started back to Gulaba and again 1 hour to reach Manali & this is how this beautiful trek ends here.
