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.

Looking behind at our campsite. How tiny it looks now 😉

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.
