Beaskund Trek

Send us a query >>

This is an easy to moderate trek, and would bring forth small challenges and beautiful views. Participants would need to cross small turbulent streams over simple log bridges or may need to wade through icy cold waters. Earlier in the season, one has a good chance to come across small glaciers as well.

This is not the usual route which is used for Beas kund trek. We have explored and altered so that the trek is circular. This elliminates the need to trek on the same route during the return, as well as it exposes a completely new and far better experience on the whole.

Just after the precarious rock crossing, one would need to traverse a small glacier or stream and then climb to the shoulder of the ridge. This camp site is also used for Mountaineering expeditions to Shetidhar, Manali peak etc.
