Beas Kund Bhrigu Lake   Duration : 06 Days to cover both the treks

In the vedic period, the upper catchment area of Beas river in the Kullu valley was called Kulanthapith (End of the Habitable world) in Sanskrit. Stands at the top of the Rohtang Pass at the head of the valley, showered upon by monsoon clouds every year and irrigated by countless streams. In front of you is the rain-shadow area of Lahaul, desolate and stark.  Not surprising then that the Indo-Aryans who settled in this valley didn't think much of the land beyond Rohtang.  But for a trekker, some trails around this region are a must, the Beas Kund-Bhrigu lake trek being just one of them.
 
06 Days to cover both the treks

April to June and from mid-September to early December. In October, Kullu celebrates Dusshera in a unique way.

Day 01 :
The trail is on a jeep track through dense deodars. A well-defined trail takes over from the track and a climb over grassy slopes followed by loose boulders brings you to the large alpine meadow of Dhundi (9,310 ft/2,840 m). Dhundi is an excellent habitat for pheasants like monals and koklas. From the campsite, the north face of Hanuman Tibba (19,183 ft/6,039 m.) can be seen.

Day 02 :
Second day you reach a ridge over which the river forms a waterfall and then go on to Lualli. Climbing the ridge beyond this place, you descend to a huge valley with the pea-shaped Beas Kund on the left. The sumits of Hanuman Tibba, Shtidhar (17,370 ft/5,294 m), Ladakhi, Manali,, Friendship and Kullu Peaks surround the lake in a semi-circle-a memorable sight.

Day 03 :
The third day, it will move through a forest of rhododendrons, fir and birch for the first hour. Then you reach open pastures. After the third bridge, a forty-five-minute walk leads to the campsite at Tundah Bhuj (10,516 ft/3,205m) on a steep-sided meadow.

Day 04 :
Fourth day trail takes you to Moridhung (12,000 ft/3,657 m), a meadow beyond the tree line. On the way up, the road to Rohtang (12,400 ft.) wends to the north. Mukar Beh (19,750 ft) and Shikar Beh (20,000ft) lie behind to the west.

Day 05 :
The fifth day climb to Bhrigu (14,000ft) a lake whose shining emerald green waters stand out against the rocky ridge surounding it. Circumnavigate the lake and climb on o the ridge. An easy scramble takes you to the top (14,400 ft/4,389 m). Hanuman Tibba is to your west, and the Mulkila (21,400ft/6,522 m) and Chandrabhaga Peaks lie to the north in Lahaul. To the south east are the razor sharp summits of Indrakila, Deo Tibba (19,700 ft). You also see the Hamta valley on this trek which is other side of the ridge. Spend a day exploring the meadows around the lake.

Day 06 :
On the last day, the steep trail switchbacks trough a thick pine forest to take you to Vashisht, a village above Manali. Tired after this descent, plunge into the hot water springs there, and then climb down to the river and walk across the bridge to Manali, or take a taxi back to Maali. The enclosed map marks out an additional route on which you can walk from Manali itself along the right bank of the river via the village of Goshal.

Travel Tips and Important Views

Getting There
Manali is linked to Delhi by a flight. In the tourist season there are several a day coming into the airport at Bhuntar, a two hour drive from Manali.

Altitude
The Bhrigu lake is the highest point at (14,010ft). The last day is a hard descent of 7,000ft.

Medical Assistance & Emergency:
Manali and Shimla is the only place to provide medical help, but you are never far from it. The Spiti valley is connected by phone but once on the trek, no medical or rescue facilities is available.

Support Services on the Trek:
Only carry your own tent for sleeping. On the Bhrigu section, be self-equiped and take a guide.
