Beas Kund trek gives you the chance to cross mountains and travel to the source of the Beas River. At the beginning of its course, it splits into numerous streams; some of which are formed by the melting of glaciers. Other small tributaries of the parent stream arise from a small yet spellbinding alpine lake.
You begin Beas Kund trekking from here, and negotiate a rigorous and long ascent to the camping spot of Bakartach. The following leg of the tour is lengthy, rigorous and scenically amazing. Making your way to the lake, you will come across many enchanting scenes, which you should take lots of photos of. After about five hours of keeping on the path, the Beas Kund trek package will finally bring you to the pond, and then back to Bakartach. The final phase of your excursion involves hiking down to Solang Valley and then driving to Manali.
Day 01: Solang Valley (2560m) to Dhundi (3150m)
Distance/Duration - 8km / 4-5 Hours
Grade - Moderate
Arrive at Solang Valley on your own and start trekking towards Dhundi on the first day of this short expedition. After crossing the popular Solang Valley, the trail will get narrower with pine forest on one side. After trekking for a short distance, you will come across your first adventure of the trek, crossing a stream. You will keep following the scenic trail until you make your way to the campsite for the night; Dhundi. It’s a tiny village located on the bank of the Beas River. After reaching the campsite, just enjoy the gorgeous surroundings and rest. Stay overnight.
Day 02: Dhundi - Beas Kund (3700m) - Dhundi
Distance/Duration - 12km / 8-9 Hours
Grade - Moderate to Difficult
This is the longest, toughest and the most important section of the Beas Kund trekking as it will take you near the origin of the river and then back to Dhundi. Just as you reach a little higher from the starting point, amazing views start appearing. The trail has a heap of boulders, and makes an excellent photography spot. Velvety slopes will be seen from here, and below them, fir and spruce trees will be easily distinguishable. From here, you will also be able to see where the tree line ends, and grasslands take over.
After walking for another few hours you will finally reach the lake. Beas Kund is a small alpine lake, where the waters seem bright blue. The numerous small streams together making up the main river will be clearly distinguishable to you. Some arise from the nearby glaciers while others have their origin in the pond itself. You may also find vibrant purple wildflowers growing on the grasslands around the pond. Take pictures, relax by the lake and explore the area more. Post this picturesque extravaganza, hike down and return to the Dhundi campsite and stay overnight.
Day 03: Dhundi to Solang Valley (2560m)
Distance/Duration - 8km / 3-4 Hours
Grade - Easy
Have a healthy breakfast at the campsite and start making your way back to Solang Valley. Today’s hike will be relatively easier as you will mostly be trekking downhill. Take a lot of pictures as you will have ample amount of time during the hike. Reach Solang Valley in the afternoon and get a picture clicked with the entire team after the trek completion.
Trip Ends. Everything else is alright.
Maximum altitude: 3700 m

What was fantastic was the team. Guide Devraj, the cook Inder and the help Janga. Komal from your team was extremely patient with us in helping select our destination and gave us enough options and customization options for us to choose a trek as per our needs. Thanks!
Thank you Adventure Nation for this incredible experience! Perfect short trek for nature and peace lovers.
Food was amazing! Arrangements by Adventure Nation made the trek more comfortable than expected!
Any trek in Himachal Pradesh is a wonderful experience. This one stands out for me because it was so thoroughly planned out. I have been on a trek in Himachal before and that one was not nearly as smooth as this one went. The itinerary is amazing and so was the accommodation and food arrangements. Loved it. Thanks a lot for this.
If you can you should take a joint trek to Beas Kund and Bhrigu Lake. You should check out Bhrigu Lake if you are so close to it. The trek to Beas Kund is FULL of the most picturesque routes I have seen in my life and I have traveled to so many places. This whole belt in the North India is just blessed with beauty. Thanks a lot for having me on board.
Beas Kund trek is fantastic. I had been on Triund trek with Adventure Nation before. That one was also cool. This trek took us longer than that one but definitely worth all the money, energy and time spent. I came back looking so refreshed. I am going to go on some other trek with you guys soon. Thanks for this.
You get to camp one night by the banks of River Beas! That is so cool. Best experience on this whole trek. The campsites are really really beautiful. So after a long day of trekking it is great for sure to just camp at such beautiful treks and unwind so that you can wake up for a bigger challenge the next day.
