#7 of 14 in Nature in Manali
Marvel at a partially frozen surface of Bhrigu Lake, located at the end of a challenging Himalayan hike. At around 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level and surrounded by snow-covered slopes, the lake offers fabulous views of local scenery. The trek, a popular activity with nature lovers and adventurers, takes visitors through a verdant forest of fir, spruce, and birch, as well as across lush meadows. Close to the Rohtang Pass, the lake is nestled among high rugged peaks and, according to local legend, never freezes completely because its waters are sacred.
