Bhrigu (4240m) is a prominent holy lake of the Kullu Region, located right of the Rohtang pass. The Legend says that Bhrigu Rishi meditated here and many local gods of the Kullu Region took a dip in its sacred water. Most famous among them is Guru Vashisht, who traveled to the lake at least once in a two or three year’s cycle. And still today many local people from Vashist make the steep ascent to visit this holy place.A forest of Fir, Oak and in higher altitude white Oak, surrounds Gulaba from where the trek starts. Later the trek will lead through green meadows and rhododendron and there might be a good possibility of seeing some of the huge vultures which are living here.
Steep ups and downs can make you a bit tired but are equally rewarding because of its breathtaking views of the Dhaula Dhar Range with high snow-covered mountains.
