Fitness Required for Bhrigu Lake Trek

At high altitude as the air gets thinner oxygen becomes less abundant. The percentage saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen determines the content of oxygen in our blood. After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the level of oxygen in our hemoglobin begins to plummet. However, the human body has both short-term and long-term adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen.

The Bhrigu Lake Trek is a moderate trek suitable for first time trekker with basic to above average fitness

Trekking Experience: Prior trekking experience is helpful for this trek but not necessary.

    Please inform the normal trekking time between each points, for example the time it will take to reach vashisth from brigu lake on final day. Also what about the safety and how tough this trek is?

    • March 29, 2015

      Hi Niraj,
      Brighu Lake trek is a moderate trek and for the Bhrigu Lake Trek itinerary in Himalayas the trekking distance between each is around 6-7 Kms and takes around 5 to 6 hours depending upon your pace this might increase or decrease. Its a relatively safe trek as it lies on a short distance from Manali.
