I did the trek in June. The difficulty is moderate but equally daunting. Fitness is needed as the climb is steep. The trek towards Bhrigu lake is through ice and it can rain anytime hence a raincoat and good trekking boots are must to avoid injuries. Once atop the view is fantastic. One can take a dip too in the freezing water if one likes.

Bhrigu lake, Manali an amazing place to visit with full of nature's beauty and full of great views. An appropriate place to visit, taking selfies and photographs and enjoying. This trek has so much to offer.

It takes anything between 2-3 days to reach the top and these days translate into memories for life. The Camp at 10000 feet in the mountain. Don't forget to eat wild strawberries when climbing. They are small in size but taste the same.

I booked a trekking trip to Bhrigu lake with an organization. It is an average difficulty trek but requires you to carry proper trekking equipment. It's literally breathtaking but the view that this trek offers is worth the pain. I recommend this as a must visit place in Manali. Bhrigu lake also has religious significance so you'll often find locals climbing up for devotional purpose.
