Beas Kund Trek
Short trek to enjoy the majesty of Himalayan trekking.
High-altitude glacial lake.
Camp at the base facing colossal Himalayan peaks masked with snow.
Suitable for the first timers as the trail is slightly inclined only at few locations.
Beas Kund trek takes you away from your worries. Pir Pinjal range is visible as we trek along the bank of beas river. Dhundi & Bakarthach are spectacular in its beauty which we visit as we climb higher from Solang to Beas Kund to reach the origin of River Beas. A small glacial lake is fed by the melting snow of higher peaks of the region. This trek doesn’t need prior high altitude trek experience, is one thing which attracts most of the novices to this trek.
Fierce River, Mountains covered by snow, Flora and Fauna of the region, High-Altitude Prestine & Calm lake nestled between jagged mountain peaks; doesn’t fail to take your mood to eternity.
The Blue lake of Beas Kund suddenly reveals itself and it is this lake where it is believed that Rishi Vyas, the author of Mahabharata took his daily bath. Dip in the icy cold waters of the lake will cleanse your fatigue in no time!
The West side of Beas Kund is magnificient peak of Hanman Tibba 5990 m / 19647 ft, which is accessible through narrow pass above this lake.
