Manimahesh Lake and Manimahesh Kailash peak are near Bharmour in Himachal Pradesh. Manimahesh has a very important sacred significance in relation to lord Shiv and is a popular pilgrim destination. In winters the lake is frozen and the path leading to it are snow blocked, not easily accessible. As summers approach, the access opens up and initial part of summer gives us a good experience of trekking in snow in the vicinity of this holy lake.
