• Trip introduction

    The Beas Kund trek is one of the famous Himalayan treks the is easily approachable from Manali and can be completed in just 2-3 days. The most unique aspect of this trek is the close-up views of the higher Himalayan peaks like Ladakhi Peak, Friendship Peak and Hanuman Tibba.

    The charming trail of mixed deodar and pine forests, flourishing grasslands and campsites in the middle of verdant valleys and alongside Beas River, are some of the reasons to do the Beas Kund trek.


    The Beas Kund trek takes you to the source of Beas River at 12,772 feet. The trek starts with a drive from Manali to Solang Valley, the start point of the trek. The journey to Beas Kund Lake takes you through the forested trail of pine and deodar trees, followed by traversing the open grasslands and rocky paths.

    You will be camping at a campsite in Dhundhi located beside Beas River, in the middle of a lush valley. You will be staying in tents on twin/triple sharing basis. Sleeping bags and mats will be provided for your comfort.

      'I went on a trek to Brighu lake booked through The Great Next. The tour operator was Bikat Adventures. The trek was well organised and booking through ''The Great Next'' gave me a lot of ease in making payments, getting confirmations and booking my bus tickets. It was a group trek of 15 people, and we had an enjoyable experience with the operator. The pricing was apt, food was good and operator was responsive to our concerns during the trek. Although I had many options to choose from for the trek, I booked Brighu Lake as it seemed to be a lush green trek with beautiful views. The website gives us a lot of options to choose treks and the sales team knows and is able to guide us well in deciding what trek we should take up. Lucky to get in touch with ''The Great Next'' who can handle my upcoming trek requirements as well. Thanks a lot The Great Next team for your support.'
