Overview

Bhairav Kunda is a recently established trekking area where visitors may explore the 4,240-meter-high lake in the Sindhupalchok district. It is situated in one of the most beautiful regions nearby Kathmandu, close to the Tibetan border. Every year, at the full moon in the Hindu month of “Bhadra” (August), hundreds of pilgrims travel to this area. With clear lakes and breathtaking scenery, this trip will lead you to the holiest pilgrimage sites that are best conserved.

The name “Bhairav” is derived from Sanskrit, the world’s oldest language, and it refers to Lord Shiva’s “destructive” aspect in Hinduism. The spectacular Tibetan Himalayan range is just a few of the mountains that may be seen throughout this walk in addition to the divine voyage. Your trip will be made more enjoyable by the sight of the Rolwaling range, Dorje Lakpa (6,966m), Madiya (6,257m), Phurbi Ghhyachu (6,637m), and Jagal Himal. Additionally, you may get up-close views of many Tibetan plateaus and Glaciers. Similarly, you’ll see that the way of life of wandering nomads hasn’t altered much throughout the years.

Summary of the trip itinerary 

A sightseeing trip of Kathmandu precedes the Bhairav Kunda trek, after which you will be transported to Jalbire. From where your trekking experience will begin. The paths pass past breathtakingly gorgeous peaks, lush woods, and several ethnic settlements. The tranquil Bhairav Kunda Lake and other mountains in the Langtang area close to the Tibetan border are seen as you climb up to the forest camp. You will also get the opportunity to interact with ethnic people more closely. And learn about their cultures and traditions while hiking. Only a camping trek can be done on this trek.
