Beas Kund trek gives students a chance to cross mountains and travel to the source of the Beas River. At the beginning of its course, it splits into numerous streams; some of which are formed by the melting of glaciers. Other small tributaries of the parent stream arise from a small yet spellbinding alpine lake. The trek is full of stunning views of glaciers and snow clad peaks. This summer trek is a perfect choice for beginners because of its short duration and easy trek level.
Manali - Solang - Dhundi (9,000 ft)
Reach Manali early in the morning and drive to the Solang valley up to the Dhundi road-link to being the first leg of the trek. Gradually ascending from the valley for around 8 km, the trail follows river Beas, many times crossing the stream from one side to the other, getting us to Dhundi. Dhundi is another alpine meadow full of wild flowers. Set up camp for overnight stay.
Dhundi - Bakarthach (10,800 ft)
Today 6 km long trek takes us over loosely held boulders and moraines of a dying glacier at places. We continue up to a scenic campsite at the pastures of Bakarthach which is a high-altitude meadow. These sun and wind swept meadows will be a feast for your senses. Overnight stay in tents.
Bakarthach - Beas Kund (11,600 ft) - Bakarthach
An early start to the day and a short climb up the ridge through Bhoj Patr will get us to Beas Kund. We will spend time here at the glacial tarn of Beas Kund - the source of one of the major rivers of north India. After a full day of excursion in the Beas Kund plateau, we will come back to Bakarthach in the evening.
Bakarthach - Solang - Manali
After breakfast we start our return trek to Solang; we will take the same route through Dhundi. On getting down, we'll board the vehicle waiting for us which will get us to Manali. Our trek concludes as we connect you from Manali to your next destination / hometown.
