Bhrigu Lake Trek Distance
Legend has it that the sage used to meditate near the lake and hence it has been rendered sacred; the locals believe that due to this the lake never freezes completely. This lake is held sacred to the sage, Rishi Brighu, a great saint of Indian history. It lies on the various trek routes of the region. A blazing blue Brighu Lake sits snug between two high-altitude ridges towards the east of Rohtang Pass. One of the many glacial lakes in Kullu Valley, this lake makes for a perfect weekend trek and is also well-suited for families. The remarkable thing about this trek is that one can reach an impressive altitude of 14,000 feet and experience snow over the second day of trekking! To add to that, the camping grounds at Rola Kholi and Pandu Ropa offer dream-like views to wake up to.
