Bhrigu Lake Trek in the upper Kullu Valley lies east of the famous Rohtang pass in Himachal Pradesh. This is a perfect weekend trek, as it is not so exhausting as the others and promises loads of entertainment for all kind of  hikers. Nestled at an altitude of 14,000 ft, the Bhrigu Lake Trek offers incredible natural vistas and jawdropping views of snow-wrapped mountains, gushing streams, lush meadows and dense forests making the trekking journey overwhelming.

What to know before you go

Also, we have listed a few tips and giveaways for you so that you know your destination a tidsy bit better and can enjoy a wholesome vacation with your family and friends. Take note of these little pointers and you are good to go.

 

  • Best time to go for Bhrigu lake trek- Mid July- Mid August
  • The locals believe that many Gods of the Kullu valley have taken a dop in the holy waters of the Bhrigu lake making it sacred for all devotees. The Bhrigu Lake lies at a distance of 6km from Gulaba, a scenic village about 22 kms from Manali.
  • Whenver travelling to a hilly destination, keep urself updated with the latest news on road conditions, weather conditions to ensure any hiccups or unexpected challenges during your travel.
  • Since, weather in the hills is always unpredictable, it is always better to carry at least one heavy woolen jacket and a good pair of shoes to shield yourself from the cold..
  • Carry identity proof and first aid kit with you always.
  • While travelling to these high altitude hill stations, try not to have heavy meals, it might create nausea and vomiting and an upset stomach.
  • Dharamshala is well-connected to Delhi and other parts of North India via a network of state operated buses as well as private tour operators. The journey is almost 520 kilometres from Delhi. An overnight journey from Delhi takes about 13 hours.
Itinerary (ex Manali)

DAY 1 From Manali Drive to Gulaba and Trek to Gulaba Meadows Camp

Arrive in Manali on your own. We will begin Bhrigu lake trek around 11am-12pm so make sure your bus arrives in Manali at least by 9am. Our journey commences from Manali, on the Rohtang Pass Road toward the little hill nook hamlet of Gulaba. Three hill towns—Kolang, Palchan, and Kothi marks the way, and it gets more and more beautiful with pine forests as we go further. Snow covered elevations surround the little locale picturesquely. Sweet grasslands washed over by the watercourse of Beas would make fantastic frames at Gulaba , only if the Rohtang transit crowd wasn’t there.
After lunch at the village, our Bhrigu lake trek starts as we follow a short trek, near about 1.5 hours to our first camp in the grasslands nearing a forest line. The trek is a complete pleasure and no hardships, navigating through the conifers shade dark and deep, and eventually coming to an open clearing.

DAY 2Gulaba to Rola Kholi

Today, we start on on exciting journey to an altitude of 12,500 ft. spanning 6 km in 3-4 hours. It’s going to be steep, steep walk, so you need to go equipped with 2 ltrs water and little snack bites to unwind between the testing laps.
For the first few miles, we are still trailing under a forest cover and bathing in the shade of rustling conifers. You can easily spot oaks, cedar, and birches. It’s a beautiful sight to catch a glimpse of blue through these leaves. Walk on 20 minutes into the trek, and the forest has now ebbed behind, unfolding only rolling green meadows before. This is the shepherds’ zone where cattle grazers are brought from the local villages all through summer. You could find a few mud huts and camp poles lying here. Keep the meadow behind and start heading south. You will find the peak of Hanuman Tibba rising in sharp focus at this point and a little below, the Seven sisters Peaks. Lying somewhere far below is the green patch of Beas Kund valley.
Next, comes another slight jungle cover, passing which the trail falls on to the rugged meadows again. The thrill climaxes when the path gets narrower and steeper just before entering the grasslands of Rola Kholi. At about 15 to 20 minutes far from reaching the campsite, we pass two nallahs or small streams which are also our water sources. Our camp is set near chor nallah at the Rola Kholi campsite.
This night is the night of wonder under a sky breaking into a zillion stars!

DAY 3Rola Kholi- Bhrigu Lake-back to Rola Kholi

Today’s is an out and out landscape change from all of what we have experienced in the days before! Starting off way early on the Bhrigu lake trek in the morning, we traverse a distance of 10 kilometers in approx 7-8 hours on a steep and massively stony path. The verdant meadows of the last two days feel like a dream but this landscape is no less captivating, and gets all the more refreshing in the cool mountain climate.
Till June, you can expect this course post Rola Khuli to be covered in snow. From mid-July on, the gradients of brown, green, and white gets prominent as the snow melts off. On the last leg of the trail, it’s highly advisable to go slow and not hurry at all as the path is ridden with scree and slippery boulders.
The alpine lake becomes visible between the two ridges that we reach at the end of the last boulder-bound lap. Be it high winters or the beginning of summer, the lake is never entirely frozen. This is an incidence attributed to the power of Sage Bhrigu of the ancient myths to whom this lake is named.
From the high belt surrounding the lake, you can catch a instant glimpse of the Solang Valley nestling far away and on a clear day, the sky lights up with the splendid peaks of Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar range.

DAY 4 Rola Kholi to Gulaba drive to Manali

Today, we trek back on the same treaded path through the delicious green meadows in one long sweep to Gulaba which will take approx 2 to 3 hours, and back from there to Manali by car, we will reach Manali in between 2 to 3 pm.
Note: There is an alternate return route to Manali via Vashisht and Pandu Ropa from the Bhrigu Lake site, but we find this path more relaxing and sustainable for a soothing green trek. In the evening, you can choose to relax in Manali or return back to your city.
