  • Magical Bhrigu Lake Trek via Forests, Waterfalls, Meadows

    Manali

    ₹5,000.00

    If you're one of those people who love raw nature, you're in for a treat because this trek is not any normal trek to Bhrigu Lake. We've selected a trail that entirely goes through dense forests, waterfalls, and meadows. No driving from Manali to Gulaba. Where's fun in that? Our trek starts roughly 2KM from Manali. From the beginning to the end of the trek, you'll be in the lap of mother nature, enjoying its beauty in forms of rivers, waterfalls, dense pine forests, breathtaking meadows meeting the blue sky, and finally the snow-covered mountains when we're approaching Bhrigu Lake. There are chances we may also experience snowfall up there. We've planned this trek in a way that makes sure you're never being rushed to finish the trek. Please do make sure that you have been focusing on your fitness a bit and everything is going to be just fine. :) Brief Itinerary (All meals covered) ------------------ DAY 1 — After your arrival in Manali, we'll head to our guest house, drop our luggage and go to the hot springs (separate for men and women), have breakfast/tea/coffee and then head to the Jogini Waterfall in Vashisht. Spend some time there enjoying the waterfall. It'll be a bit tiring for the first timers but the visit to the very top of the fall is well worth the effort. Return back from Jogini, have our lunch, and relax for the day. Dinner will be served at 7:00 PM. After dinner, we'll discuss our next-day plans when the actual adventure begins and then call it a day. DAY 2 — The trek starts just 2KMs from Manali early morning at 6:00 AM after breakfast/tea/coffee and then we trek to our 1st camp on the way to Panduropa and spend the night there, enjoying the surroundings and some fun outdoor activities. (Max altitude: 9,000ft) DAY 3 — After getting the needed energy for the journey ahead, we start our trek to our 2nd camp, very close to the Bhrigu Lake. We spend some time here to enjoy the vast amount of natural beauty surrounding us and after some outdoor activities, we call it a day. (Max altitude: 12,000ft) DAY 4 — This is when we leave our bigger backpacks in our tents and launch ourselves toward Bhrigu Lake with our day packs and enjoy the breathtaking sight of the high altitude glacial lake (Altitude: 14,000ft) and snow-clad mountains all around us. By the time we are back to our camps, it'll be almost noon when after taking the needed rest, we start heading down to our 1st campsite. We spend the night here. DAY 5 — This is the day when we wrap our trek. No rush. We take our time to get ready, enjoy some more time in the lap of nature and then finally start heading down around 8 AM. We reach Vashisht around 1 PM and after lunch & hot springs, we bid adieu to each other.
