Bhairav Kunda Trek

Bhairav Kund is named after the destructive aspect of Lord Shiva and is one of the sacred pilgrimage sites for Shamans. Both Hindus and Buddhist devotees visit this high altitude (4200m) holy mountain lake to pay homage and bathe away sins during every Bhadra (August) Full Moon.

Jalbire, the starting point for this trek is a five hour bus ride from Kathmandu towards the Tibetan border. We travel through a mixture of beautiful mountain scenery and the terraced fields and characteristic houses of rural villages from different ethnic groups.

You will spend your first night experiencing the 'Newari' culture of Jalbire. Your Guide will give a short talk on trekking, altitude sickness and the highlights of the trek. These include the holy Bhairav Kund, the incredible Himalayan scenery and the life style of nomadic people unchanged by time.

Your trail winds along an old trade route between Nepal and Tibet. through a number of unspoilt Buddhist villages, past chortens and Sherpa houses. The unusual climatic and geographical mix make this area a naturalist's dream and a mecca for those who appreciate traditional cultures.

Along the trail you will experience spectacular views of mountains in Tibet. and the Jugal Himal section of the Himalayan Range, which includes the peaks of Dorje Lakpa (6966), Madiya (6257M) and Phurbi Ghhyachu (6637m).

This trek can be done all year round except for the monsoon months and can be combined with a rafting tour.
