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.

You now begin your Beas Kund trek, and in its first leg, trek to Bakartach. It is a gradual and long climb through the mountains to this picturesque camping site. You will absolutely love camping by the river, and listening to the sound of the water splashing on the rocks.
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 place 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 admiring the views, resume your hike, and after a while, you will reach another viewpoint. From here, you will be able to see grassy mountain slopes with sparse shrubs. In the distance, you will see the glacier along with the river emerging from it. Beyond the glaciers, barren mountains will be visible. Continue your Beas Kund trekking tour and arrive at yet another bewitching spot. By now, you would have reached way beyond the point where trees stop growing. Here you will notice that even shrubs are getting smaller and scantier. The mountains surrounding this spot have certain landslide marks, which are full of rocks. If you look carefully at the slopes, then you will realise that beyond a certain height, the grass has also disappeared altogether, and only barren and sharp cliffs remain. At the highest reaches of the slopes, some amount of snow will be visible as well.
After walking for about four hours today on your Beas Kund trek package, you will finally reach your destination. 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.

Post this picturesque extravaganza, hike down and return to Dhundi.
