The opportunity of trekking to a high altitude glacial lake is something which every hiker looks forward to. Most of the high altitude lakes normally require multiple days of hiking before you can finally cherish the view of the lake. But here we have Bhrigu lake which is just two days hike away from Manali. This lake lies to the east of the famous Rohtang Pass and is an ideal weekend hiking option. Trek starts from near Gulaba which is 22 kms from Manali. The first day of hike is through virgin forests with fabulous views of Manali & Solang Valley till you reach the Camp site of Roli Kholi. Second day of the hike is a treat for those who love to see snow on a trek. The hike to bhrigu is steep & comprise of walking over large expanse of snow (In the months of winter) till you reach a point where the oval shaped lake appears. Enjoy the quite surroundings near the lake & afterward descend through meadows to the camp site of Pandu Ropa. On the third day the initial walk is through rice fields of Pandu Ropa with grand views of snow clad mountains. The rivulets of water flowing through high grass present a refreshing sight. The last leg of hike is a steep decent through old mountain villages & apple orchards. The trek ends in Vashish which is just the right place to end a hike owing to a hot sulphur water spring. Take a dip in pool here & head to Manali where the trek ends.
