The flourishing tourism of Himachal has witnessed Manali being one of the most important hubs for several adventures. It is very well-connected via roadways, railways, and airways to several Indian cities, including metros. If you travel by air, the closest domestic airport is the Chandigarh airport that encounters flights from all major Indian cities like Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, New Delhi, Mumbai, etc. The closest international airport is the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. Though these are the major options for air travel, the Kullu airport and the Bhuntar airport, located within Himachal Pradesh and only encountering domestic flights serve as a really robust traveling option for interstate travelers. If you are planning to reach Manali via train, then the narrow-gauge track of the Jogindernagar railway station is the one that lies closest to Manali. You can reach Manali from Jogindernagar in only 3 to 4 hours. But since it is a narrow-gauge railway track, it does not encounter all the traffic from different parts of India. Alternatively, getting down at the Kalka railway station at the foot of Himachal Pradesh could be a great option. The Kalka railway station is well-connected to various Indian cities like New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Indore, Patna, Bhopal, Guwahati, Lucknow, and many others. Other rail routes include the Chandigarh and the Ambala railway station. From both these railheads, you get a host of transport options to reach Manali. Along with the seamless Himachal Pradesh bus service, several other private bus companies connect Manali to important North-Indian cities like New Delhi, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Ambala, etc., via roadways.

Since Manali witnessed a massive influx of tourists throughout the year, there are several accommodation options at this place. The list is never-ending, from budget hotels to five-star rated ones, luxury hotels, boutique hotels, villas, hostels, homestays, guesthouses, etc. Some of these accommodations come with superb amenities, and hence the price of stay per night is relatively high. Others might offer you fundamental amenities but provide breathtaking views of the Himalayan scenery all around. Starting from USD 10 (INR 750) per night, the price goes up to USD 100 (INR 7500) and more according to your choice of accommodation.
One of the most compelling reasons to venture on the Bhrigu Lake Trek is the presence of the high-altitude glacial lake-Lake Bhrigu amidst a serene environment with breathtaking sceneries. The Bhrigu Lake height of 14,100 feet or roughly 4300 meters is one reason you will enter an abode of clouds as you reach this spot. The panoramic vistas of the snow-capped mountains, including the Pir Panjal, Dhauladhar, Hanuman Tibba- the highest peak of the Dhauladhar Range, and the Seven Sisters Peak- towering above 15,500 meters is a bonus offering in the Bhrigu Lake trek. The trek offers you a chance to move across scenic landscapes comprising virgin forests and lush, green meadows while ascending the steep trails. It is the prettiest grassland treks right out of Manali, and you wouldn’t want to miss this experience.
The Bhrigu Lake Trek distance is only 26 kilometers, but you must undertake a sharp ascent to an altitude of about 14,100 ft / 4340 meters in three to four days. Hence, being reasonably fit is one of the critical points before embarking on this trek. The Bhrigu Lake trek is graded easy to moderate; thus, you need not require the fitness of a marathon athlete, but you need a few months of cardiovascular, strength-conditioning, and endurance training before you start this trek. You can alter your gym sessions with custom training regimes where you carry a backpack and take long hikes on hilly terrains.
The Bhrigu Lake Trek can be done during the pre-monsoon seasons of mid-June to July, where you might experience a frozen Bhrigu Lake with snow patches on the trails. The monsoon season from mid-July to mid-August brings tumultuous showers, turning the entire valley lush green. The snow on the trails recedes along with the ice over the Bhrigu Lake melting. Mid-August to September is the peak tourist season with clear skies, pleasant weather, lush green valleys, and the royal blue waters of the Bhrigu Lake with reflections of the nearby mountains on it. If you are traveling with a tour operator or a travel agency, do some personal research on the Bhrigu Lake Trek cost and the amenities you are getting.
Your gear and equipment list for the Bhrigu Lake Trek includes a backpack, a daypack, a few layers of thermal inners, t-shirts, a couple of fleece or woolen sweaters to form the insulation layers, a regular padded/shell jacket, a raincoat, or a poncho, synthetic hiking pants that are waterproof and quick-dry, sunglasses, suncap, balaclava, few pairs of socks and underwear, rain cover for your backpack, walking sticks, well-made and sturdy hiking boots, synthetic hand gloves, etc. You should also carry personal toiletries, sunscreen, lip salve, water bottles, water purification tablets, a comprehensive medicine, and first-aid kit, etc.
