The balance amount is payable before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date). If a customer fails to make the balance payment before the midnight of the 4th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), his / her booking shall stand cancelled.
If the date of booking is after the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), then the total booking value including any applicable taxes, is payable at the time of booking.
Payments for bookings shall be made online, through the payment gateway of reccytravel.com or other online modes, as advised by the Reccy relationship manager.
B. Loyalty Points
On making the full payment for a particular booking made through the reccytravel.com website, the customer shall earn Reccy Points equal to 5% of the trip value (excluding any taxes payable). Reccy Points earned can be redeemed towards making payment for any subsequent booking made through the reccytravel website.
Reccy Points earned for booking a particular trip cannot be redeemed until the start date of that trip.
Reccy Points cannot be earned in a booking, in the event the customer is availing any other benefit, such as a discount or is applying a promo code.
When redeeming Reccy Points in a transaction, the customer will earn Reccy Points only on the portion of the booking amount for which he / she is not paying through Reccy Points.
If you book a trip for INR 10,000, including 5% GST, total payable will be INR 10,500.
After you make the full payment for this booking, on the start date of this trip you shall receive 5% of the trip value as Reccy Points, in this case 500 Reccy Points will get deposited as your loyalty point balance.
On your next booking, let’s assume the trip value is INR 15,000, and total payable including 5% GST is INR 15,750. Your Reccy Point balance of 500 shall be applied at a 1:1 ratio to reduce your total payable for this trip booking by INR 500. Hence, you actual payable for this trip booking shall be INR 15,250, with a reduction of INR 500.
Not only that, you will again earn Reccy Points on the amount you paid for this trip, net of taxes and Reccy Points redeemed. In this example, on your second booking you will earn 725 Reccy Points (5% of INR 14,500), which will reduce your payable amount in the subsequent booking.
Of course Reccy guarantees the best price on every product listed on its website, hence your loyalty point benefit comes on top of the best prices you get for all your adventure and outdoor booking needs.

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.
