Trekking to high altitude glacial Lakes in itself is quite adventurous and manages to catch the interest of every hiker. Usually these high altitudes lakes are difficult to reach and needs days of hiking and crossing difficult terrains, before the sight of the lake can be cherished. But all these tough complications can be kept at bay with the beautiful Bhrigu Lake Trek in the upper Kullu Valley based in the eastern side of the famous Rohtang pass in Himachal Pradesh. This is ideal weekend hiking trip promising loads of entertainment for both beginners as well as experienced hikers. Nestled at an altitude of 14,000 ft the Bhrigu Lake Trek offers fascinating natural vistas and breathtaking views of snow clapped mountains, lush meadows ad verdant rich forests
Starting from Mid May, till the month of October, 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. It must also be noted that 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.
