About Beas Kund Trek
Beas Kund Trek is an ideal trek for
those who fascinates glaciers. It’s your secret desire, every time you dream to
witness the astonishing source of a sparkling river. Or, imagine yourself walking
over the glacier. Isn’t it an exhilarating experience? Well, it sure is.
Beas Kund is famously named after the
sage Vyas (Beas River in Hindi). Several say that the holy sage used to bathe
and meditate near this river attaching a huge sense of importance to it. But
what is more surprising about the river and its source, is the unimaginable
natural beauty surrounding it. Imagine walking at the foothills of the three
highest peaks around Manali covered with lush green grasslands and meadows.
The specialty of Beas Kund trekking is
obviously the astounding glacier, but one of the other surprises it offers you
is the spectacular landscape of vast open fields flourishing with absolute
greenish meadows. Several narrow lanes of Beas Kund river (also sometimes
called river Beas) slicing through the fields and giving it a touch of
to know about Beas Kund Trek Distance?
The trek starts with large boulders and
rocks which are kind of difficult to walk on, many times you will have to
balance on a single rock to find a way through the trail. But as you move forward
with the trek, the terrain gradually starts moulding into a comfortable field
blooming with colorful plants and viridescent meadows. Most refreshing about
the trek is the continuous companionship of the Beas River till the first
camping site - Dhundhi.
Only after you cross the Beas River,
you will enter a dense forest of oak and pine. Trailing through them, you will
reach the Dhundhi campsite. Dhundhi is also a large clearing in the middle of
the valley with grasslands bushing the entire area. Nothing is more dazzling
than Beas Kund camping right in
the middle of the meadows and living deep in nature.
The magnanimity of the landscape is so
gigantic that you seem to be like an ant in the world of natural beasts. But
Dhundhi brings in the first wave of astonishment and satisfaction, both at the
same time. The reason why the Beas Kund river trek is very ideal in nature is that it doesn’t take more than four
days to trek to such an out of the word experience. You can have a perfect day
out in Manali and later choose to trek to Beas Kund.
Beas Kund Trek length has ‘Thrill’ Element Too
The most startling experience of the
entire trek comes when you trek from Dhundhi to the dazing source of the Beas River
- The glacier. Please be cautious that the route from Dhundhi to the source of
the river is quite difficult yet adventurous too. You will pass through patches
of open barren fields and rocky terrain. The terrain where you will have to
walk over the boulders and large rocks is a thrilling but sensitive area of the
trek. As the glacier stretches and retracts over time, most of the part goes
under the rocks, therefore making the area unpredictable. Funnily, many
trekkers have also named that place a 120-hour movie scene, because if by
chance you step on the wrong stone, you might get stuck similar to that movie.
But don't worry at all, we have super
trained and experienced guides for you. They will properly guide you through
the way and ensure perfect safety too. The area where the glacier sits silently
is unnerving and stupefying. A large frozen pond sitting at such a high with
massive mountains protecting it from all the sides makes you realize that
nature is indeed living. To experience and observe such a landscape is itself a
mark of luck. If you are one of them, consider yourself grateful.
If you have chosen post-monsoon or
midsummer as the time to pursue the endeavour, the entire valley will almost
look like Kashmir valleys. Beas Kund trek height being 12,772 ft.,
offers a staggering view of peaks such as Friendship peak, Shitidhar, Ladakhi,
and Hanuman Tibba peaks. Beas Kund trek’s best time is mainly in early summers
or post monsoon. If the Beas weather stays pleasant and clear, you can also
catch the views of the entire mountains, right from the foothill to the peak.
