Beas Kund trek is one of the most popular and beautiful treks in Kullu Valley. Beas Kund is a holy lake, where Rishi Vyas took his daily bath. River Beas originates from here. It is an ideal base camp for climbing the nearby peaks like Shitidhar, Friendship and Ladakhi Peak. The Basecamp is in Solang Nallah, 13 km away from Manali and a popular place for tourists for doing adventure sports such as skiing, paragliding and bouldering. Dhundhi camp gives a first glimpse of Mt. Hanuman Tibba and the Seven Sisters. Beas Kund area might be full of snow at the time of this trek. This is an enjoyable and easy going trek for any age group
Day 1 Manali to Solang Nallah (2480m) 4 hours
This 5 hours trek leads us from Old Manali, where we can visit the Manu Temple, up through a nice forest; later through beautiful apple orchards. After a gradual ascent we reach the villages Goshal and Sannag, than we cross a river and enter the traditional village Burua. From hear a rocky trail leads us to the Bouldering area of Solang Nallah. We have to cross a stream, which can be a little tricky, since there is no bridge at all.
