Beaskund trek in Himachal Pradesh, India

About Beaskund, Manali

Beaskund is one of the most beautiful places in the Dhauladhar range of the mighty Himalayas. Besides being regarded as sacred, Beaskund is where the river Beas originates and it offers spectacular views of the nearby Shitidhar, Ladakhi, Friendship and Hanuman Tibba peaks.

About the Beaskund trek

This is one of the most alluring treks in the Kullu, as the trail takes you along the river bank and offers panoramic views of the Pir Pangal range. This is an easy to moderate grade trek and is suitable for amateurs and people of all age groups. No prior trekking experience is required and it is a short trek that can be done over a weekend.

The Beaskund trek takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Manali in just a short drive. You’ll drive through the Solang Valley. Solang has good skiing slopes in winter and is great for paragliding in summer. The trail takes you trekking along the river and then through the lush green meadows of Dhundi and Bakartach to the Beaskund glacier, the birthplace of the River Beas. The pristine blue-green lake of Beas Kund is believed to be the bathing place of Rishi Vyas, a sage and the author of the epic Mahabharata. The lake (kund) was named after him. Grit your teeth and bear the cold as you dip your feet into its icy glacial waters for it is a holy lake and it is sure to rejuvenate you. All around you will see picturesque snow-capped mountain and landscapes that are absolutely breath taking.

This trek is packed with a variety of terrains and routes to keep you enthralled all the way. You'll trek past slow avalanches rumbling in the distance, up wide open valleys between peaks, where mountain streams dot the landscape, up grazing meadows where shepherds bring their flock to graze on the sweet grass. You'll also witness hanging glaciers and camp in beautiful meadows with the sound of the river close by. But the emerald-green Beaskund is the highlight of this trip, with its serene environs and open skies above.

Beaskund Season – When to go for the Beaskund trek

Beaskund is a pleasant summer or spring trek. From the months of May to October, the snow has melted, leaving behind a carpet of green, dotted with wildflowers. The skies are clear, and the days are warm with a cool breeze. At night it gets just cool enough to warrant a jacket or a campfire. Many adventurers head to Beaskund during the winter, to trek in snow and see the frozen Beaskund. When to go to Beaskund really depends on what you’re looking for in your trek.
