Brighu Lake is a high altitude lake situated in the district Kullu of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is about 4235 m above sea level and is close to habitation, yet secluded with surrounding greenery. It lies to the east of Rohtang Pass and the nearest village is Gulaba, which is 6 km away. The lake is visited regularly by people and is held sacred to the sage Brighu, a great Indian saint, one of the Saptarshis and the father of Vedic astrology. He is said to have meditated near the lake while writing Brighu Samhita.

This lake is a perfect weekend getaway for treks with the families. In the summer, the lake is a bright, saturated, forget- me- blue color. During the winter, the lake is completely covered with snow. On a clear day, one can catch glimpses of Pir Pinjal and Dhauladhar ranges, and also of Indrasen, Deo Tibba, and Hanuman Tibba.

While trekking, the lake is usually enveloped with fog, so it’s best to hire a guide while exploring the area as it can be difficult to find the trail.
