Bhrigu Lake, Manali

4.8
#8 of 14 in Nature in Manali
Marvel at a partially frozen surface of Bhrigu Lake, located at the end of a challenging Himalayan hike. At around 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level and surrounded by snow-covered slopes, the lake offers fabulous views of local scenery. The trek, a popular activity with nature lovers and adventurers, takes visitors through a verdant forest of fir, spruce, and birch, as well as across lush meadows. Close to the Rohtang Pass, the lake is nestled among high rugged peaks and, according to local legend, never freezes completely because its waters are sacred.

  • The lake located at an elevation of 14000ft looks beautiful and can be experienced in its different forms and colors depending on the time of the year you are visiting the place. There is a small temple right beside the lake dedicated to Bhrigu Rishi on whom the lake has been named.
  • The lake is the finishing point of a 3 day trek. The trek involves tedious walking and cold nights in tents but once you reach the lake you will know that its worth attempting. During may the lake was frozen and there was snow everywhere around it. It is believed that devtas bathe in this lake. So it is believed to be holy.
