Trek to the Beas River Spring with a magnificent view of the mountain
A famous tour around Manali, Beas Kund was always. After all, the river that flows through the city takes you straight to the source. (You may have come to Manali by following the same river upstream!)
But the setting is one of the reasons why walkers love it. Picture this: Picture this: The three largest mountains around Manali flourish under the summits of lush green grasslands. The emerald lake, from which the Beas River emerges, is hidden in these grasslands. The contrast between the stunning mountain peaks of Pir Panjal adds to its beauty the contrasting sight of this calm water body.
Here you also have a keen sense that you are close to the source of the wrathful river in the valley below. This emerald wave sweeps away into streams and tumbles waterfalls right down to the boiling river Beas. The Beas Kund is also associated with the legend, as is the case with every fluvial feeding a culture or settlements surrounding it. Rishi Vyas has been believed to take his daily bath in this lake who wrote the Mahabharata. The term Beas Kund may have come from Vyas, the sage, and Kund, a lake. It is possible.
The combination of great, snowy summits above you, the greenery of the prairies, and the lake attract all. We would recommend preparation while this trek can be made by beginners. At the beginning of the trek, the climb from about 8,000 ft to 12,000 ft is no mean feat.
The Trek Beas Kund is one of the most popular routes in Manali over a long weekend. The trek takes you away from Manali City’s hustle and bustle.
There are great views over the Pir Pinjal ranges on the banks of the Beas River. It is the beauty of the wildernesses of Dhundi & Bakarthach. When you go up you reach the source of the Beas River. A little glacier lake fed from the higher peaks by melting snow glaciers. This tour is suitable for all ages and should be more than sufficient at the basic fitness level.
Why I personally loved Beas Kund
Some people like mountains and the sea. Some people then have a mild spot for rivers, prairies, flora, and fauna within their hearts and they would travel endless hours only to witness these isolated miracles of nature rarely seen in the vicinity of any settlements in human life.
My pulses always managed to get through with the contrasting sight of calm waterbodies nestled between jagging mountain tops.
The need to visit such a lake and camp along its shores helped me zero on a Beas Kund trek in the Kullu valley in Manali already on Friday evenings and the weekend in hand to do a hike.
All eight kilometers are on paved roads and you can ride on one of the numerous trucks to the building site next to Dhundi if you are lucky. There is a construction on the south end of the famous Rohtang Tunnel, 8.8 km long, that will make the road in Leh available year-round, and private and public vehicles from the whole stretch of road are strictly prohibited.
An Amphitheatre Of Big Mountains
Underneath these high mountains are Bakarthach and Dhundhi’s big grasslands. Bakartha is a field full of grassy sheep and bovine pastures. Bakartha. Small streams are spreading across this lush wilderness. It’s a beautiful green space! The grassland you camp on at the start of your trek is Dhundhi, on the other hand. You see the Beas River loudly tumbling on one side of this campsite and a multitude of flowering flora on the other.
The grasslands of Bakarthach and Dhundhi
The trail Beas Kund has a close-up view over big Manali mountains, such as the Friendship Peak, Shitidhar, Ladakhi, and Hanuman Tibba. It’s only four days from the trek! Such mountain views are generally donated to mountaineers and hardcore walkers – following days of rigorous trekking. No wonder mountaineering institutes set up their base camp on this path to training in snow and ice skating aspiring mountain climbers. You can find Mt Indrasen, Deo Tibba, and other peaks of the Pir Panjal range on a clear day.
Trekking In Ancient Deodar Forests
Only five minutes down the path, old deodar trees are rising to create dense coniferous woodlands. They’re so large that even if you grind your neck, you can’t see the tops of the tree. Pine and maple trees can also be found. This is just 15 kilometers from Manali, a lively town, hard to believe.
