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 1: Arrive at Manali Basecamp
As you arrive in Manali, report at the base camp, where you will be given orientation by the trek leader, about what to carry and how to trek. You will also wander through the cobblestone pathways of the town, explore the surroundings and admire the rustic charm of the city. Overnight stay in camps.
Day 2: Solang Valley - Dhundi - Bakartach (14 Km | 3149 m)
Next morning, relish a sumptuous breakfast, and get ready for the drive from Solang to Dhundi, which will take around 20-25 mins. Prepare yourself for views of breathtaking snow-capped mountains, including Deo Tibba (6,001 m) and Indrasan peaks (6220 m). The road crossing Solang Nala passes through a forest of oak, fir and walnut trees, which rushes past you as you drive onwards to Dhundi.
Once you reach Dhundi, your trek towards Beas Kund will commence. The trail will meander through lush forests accompanied with an enthralling view of Himalayan Mountains, like the Seven Sisters Peak. Since the trail will be long, there will be various halts for rest. Once you reach Bakrathatch, the route is rocky in summers, has knee-deep snow in winter. You must keep your camera ready for the picturesque shots of such a beautiful location. Overnight stay in camps pitched near the river in Bakartach.
Day 3: Bakartach - Beas Kund - Bakartach (5 hours | 3649 m)
Today morning you will begin the trek to Beas Kund. Just after a few ascends, you will be able to see magnificent vistas of high mountains, velvety slopes and abundance of greenery. Keep your camera close as you will get various shots for your photography. While hiking you will also notice change in vegetation. As you keep hiking higher, the greenery will fade away and barren mountains will take its place.
After trekking for 4-5 hours, you will reach the stunning blue lake of Beas Kund, which is said to be the source of River Beas. Numerous small streams together making up the main river will be clearly distinguishable to you. Take pictures of beautiful purple wild flowers around the lake beautifully compliment the cerulean lake. Click some shots, relax by the river and indulge in tranquility. After spending some time with the nature, hike down and return to Bakartach and stay overnight in camps.
Day 4: Bakartach to Solang Valley | Drive to Manali
Today morning, you will check out of the camp, from where you will start your return journey to Solang valley and then drive back to Manali.
Maximum altitude: 3700 m
Best Season: May to June and September to October

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.
