The Beas Kund trek is one of the most popular treks in Manali which takes one to the origin of the river Beas at an altitude of 3700 mts. and to many of the ancient glaciers located around it. Mythology has it that Beas Rishi meditated here and wrote the epic Mahabharata. Beas kund is a magical place, which is surrounded by the peak of Hanuman Tibba, Ladakhi peak, Manali peak, Muker beh, Sheti Dhar peak and the well known Friendship Peak. There are cascading waterfalls on the way and crystal-clear lake called as Beas Kund. The route to Beas Kund starts near Solang nallah. The trail to Beas kund from Solang Nallah is approximately 15 kms long. A jeep road goes up to Dhundi from Solang Nallah where the SASE, Manali, has a study unit. Route to Beas Kund is three days average trek, that will take us through snow fields (in winter) moraines, meadows, over boulders and glaciers. 

Bakar thatch is a highland meadow and it takes a leisurely walk of 2-3 hours to reach. The route passes through coniferous trees to alpine pastures. The trail is moderate with few climbs in between. As we reach at Bakar thach one could see snow capped peaks, rocky mountains, glaciers and moraines. Bakar thach is the base for all the expeditions and trekking done in this mountain range. The next stop on this trek is Beas Kund a holy lake located in the lap of massive mountain ranges. As we had started, after two hours of gradual trek, the trail goes uphill for a short distance on moraines, and then traverses over a glacier field to the Beas Kund. Beas kund is a serene lake with spiritual beliefs concerned to it. It is a holy place for the locals and is kept clean by every visitors. Legend has it that if someone pollutes the place the weather changes dramatically and sometimes costs the lives of people. After all the lake is holy and polluting around it could be an act of foolishness. At Beas kund spend some quality time in the tranquility of pure Nature. Then trail back same way to the camp at Bakar Thach. Next morning trail down to the road head at Dhundi.
