BREIF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM:
Bhrigu Lake is a high altitude alpine lake at an altitude of 14,000 feet; The Lake remains frozen for most of the year and is rooted deep in Hindu ancient stories.

There are some common elements to these treks in Manali as you traverse through the beautifully diverse Himalayan terrain, small idyllic villages and are treated to the most exotic flora and fauna of Himachal Pradesh.
