Adventure Trek to Bhairab Kunda

Bhairav Kunda, a spectacular lake in high mountain region to the north of Kathmandu, is named after the ferocious form of Lord Shiva. Therefore this lake is a famous pilgrimage for the Hindus. Like other such lakes in the Himalayan region of Nepal, this lake is formed by melting of snow accumulated in the high Himalayas. The trekking route to this region passes through diverse landscapes, geography, culture   and ethnicity.

Like other adventure treks in Nepal, the trek to Bhairav Kunda offers you the experience of pristine natural beauty, cultural diversity and ethnic mix in the mountains of Nepal. From mixed culture and settlements as you climb higher, you encounter typical Sherpa villages with chortens, mani walls and monasteries. The predominant Buddhist culture of the Sherpas makes itself felt in all important places around their settlements, marked by fluttering prayer flags. But our ultimate destination, the Bhairav Kunda, is a holy site for the Hindus, the Buddhists, and the Shamans belonging to the ancient animistic tradition. If you reach the place at the time of pilgrimage, this high alpine region pulsates with dizzying liveliness, Shamanistic dances, and the devout taking dip in the holy water of the lake. The Himalayan mountains’ spectacle that includes peaks like Dorje Lakpa, Madiya, Phurbi Ghyachu and numerous others is another attraction of the place.
