Want to try some offbeat trek. Then don’t yet pack your warm clothes.
This summer, it’s gonna be cold, very cold.
TRAVOLUTION invites you for a chilling trek to Manimahesh Lake. Manimahesh Lake is a high altitude lake (elevation 13,390 ft) situated close to the Manimahesh Kailash Peak in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas, in the Bharmour subdivision of Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. The religious significance of this lake is next to that of the Lake Manasarovar in Tibet. It is believed that Lord Shiva created Manimahesh after he married Goddess Parvati, who is worshipped as Mata Girja. There are many legends narrated linking Lord Shiva and his show of displeasure through acts of avalanches and blizzards that occur in the region

Reception will be at magnificent Erina Gulshan Marriage Palace at Pathankot & Stay at hotel in Bharmour
Day 2: Bharmour - Brahmani Temple - Bharmour
An early morning trek of 2 hours will reach you at Brahmani Temple through village Malkauta. People believe that the Bharmour was called Brahmpura after Brahmani Devi. When Lord Shiva went to Manimahesh, Kailash granted a boon to goddess Brahmani Devi that all persons intending to go on pilgrimage to Manimahesh must have a dip in their holy pool. Failing this, their pilgrimage would not be acceptable to Lord Shiva. That’s why every visitor first takes bath in Brahmani’s holy pool before Manimahesh Lake trek. Enjoy the beauty of Bharmour town from the top of the ridge.
