Aren’t those parties A-M-A-Z-ING where your plate is full of all colourful delicacies and you hunt down for a little more space to add that extra sweet? Well, that is exactly what trekking up to Bhrigu Lake is like. Trek to Bhrigu Lake is a plateful experience. Shades of meadow, check; horses galloping and sheep grazing making for a wonderful capture, check; unadulterated snow bed, check; whopping height of 14,100ft, check; luminescent Bhrigu Lake, check; utterly tall snow capped mountain ranges reaching for horizon in the background, check; and to top it all the blissfulness the trek offers.
Manali bags another trophy in the name of Bhrigu Lake, situated right in its lap and marks for a trek not only loved by nature admirers but also the adventure junkies. One gets to witness the unending vastness of alpine meadows which changes its texture and shades as we ascend. With gradual climbing, it’s a stumbling experience to watch the thick forest of rhododeron ending and birch trees rising making for uncanny scenery. The mystical glacial lake too is no less. From being partially frozen at times, to skyline silver the other and reflecting the exact hue of the sky; the different traits of lake has never offered for the same picture. The Pir Pinjal and Dhauladhar ranges in the backdrop all the way through the trek stuns with its panorama.
Many trek to Bhrigu Lake to hunt down the treasure well hidden between two high altitude ridges, while some for the scenic trail of silver oak and cedar trees. May the reason be what so ever, the trek has always been a delight to newcomers and also to those who have walked this path before.
