Beas Kund Trek Overview

The Beas Kund trek takes you to the source of the Bear River - Beas Kund, located at an altitude of 3893 m, deep in the Himalayas. This Manali trek starts at Solang, the slopes which are especially popular amongst ski enthusiasts and those looking for adventure activities like paragliding in the valley. The best weather to undertake the Beas Kund Trek is either in April-May or after October. The seasons of Spring and Winter present to the trekker a completely new aspect of the trek. The temperature for the Beas Kund Trek peaks in March, reaching up to 50 degrees, while the minimum temperature is seen in November. 

You will come across stunning vistas during the adventure! Starting from towering, dense forests of oak, pine, fir, and spruce, bubbling streams amidst those forests, camping at breathtaking campsites, and visiting the Beas Kund, this trek has a lot to offer! Jam-packed with activities, yet comfortably paced, it will present to you the breathtaking scenery of the various Himalayan peaks like Deo Tibba, Indrasan, Hanuman Tibba, etc., and the glorious Himalayan sunrise and sunset! The trek will take you through dense forests of towering Oak and Pine trees, along the Bhagirathi river, across lush green meadows, and through bubbling streams and rivulets. 

During the adventure, you will be staying in camps overnight! Experience the brilliance of sharing tents, talking late into the night, and huddling in your sleeping bags after a long, exciting day!

The Beas Kund trek starts at Solang. To reach Solang, you have to first reach Manali. The nearest railway station to Manali is Joginder Nagar (50km) but it is not well-connected to major cities. Hence the nearest broad gauge railway station is Chandigarh (310km) or Ambala Cant (300km). Bhuntar Airport (50km) is only 10km from Kullu and the nearest airport to Manali but the prices tend to be steep. It is recommended that travel by bus as they fly to Manali frequently from Delhi, Shimla, Dharamshala, Chandigarh, etc. From Manali, you can catch a bus to Solang, the journey taking up to 45 minutes to finish.

The Beas Kund is located inside the Kullu Valley and is considered a holy lake and is the River Beas' original supply. As the name implies, the Beas Kund trek is the trek to the river Beas' origin. This lake is at an altitude of 3,650 meters at Mount Hanuman Tibba and Seven Sisters' lap. Some people believe that Rishi Vyas used to take his bath in this lake. The Beas Kund Trek is considered the least complicated trek in the Himachal Himalayan region. The trek starts from Solang Nallah. Solang Nallah, located at a height of 8,400 feet, is the crown of Kullu Valley. It is located 13 km above Manali. In Manali, Solang Nallah is one of the favorite destinations for snow sports like skiing and paragliding. There are some wonderful spots to enjoy as the Beas River flows through the place. Snaking through the Solang Valley gives a rejuvenating experience, and the trip is filled up with several wonders. On your Beas Kund Trek path, you can explore the mesmerizing meadows of Dhundi and Bakarthach. You will also see some of the majestic peaks such as Hanuman Tibba, Friendship Peak, Shitidhar, and Seven Sisters on this trek. You will also explore the Beas Kund Glacier while moving towards Beas Kund. The Beas Kund Trek is a perfect summer trek and is ideal for those beginners because of its short duration and easy hiking.

  • Duration: 3 days

Best time for the Beas Kund Trek

The best time for the Beas Kund Trek is May and June. During these months, the snow melts and clears the path, and trekking becomes easier. You can also find ice-topped mountains and can view the places nearby. During these months, you will get some amazing picturesque views. However, you should avoid Beas Kund Trekking during the monsoon season, i.e., August and September. The place receives heavy rainfalls, and the paths will also get blocked due to landslides. If you are a beginner-level trekker, rain and snowy slopes are not a good mixture. So avoid these months. October is a chilly month here and also a suitable time to plan the trek before winter sets in. If you want to explore the cool and chilly climate of the place, October is the best and is starting the winter season. However, if you are an experienced trekker, you can attempt the Beas Kund Trek during winter. Beginners are advised not to try during winter as you face many obstacles in between the trek.


Beas Kund trek difficulty

Talking about the Beas Kund trek difficulty level, the trek is easy moderate, and even a beginner can do it. The trek route is short and can be completed quickly, making it a great choice for first-time trekkers. However, the path is quite easy in the beginning, and the final climb is a little difficult and is doable for everyone.


What to see during the Beas Kund trek

Big mountains

The Beas Kund trek offers you witness to some of the big mountains of Manali, such as Shitidhar, Friendship Peak, and Hanuman Tibba. If the weather is clear, you will also be able to spot Mount Indrasen, Deo Tibba, and more peaks during the Beas Kund trek.


Just below these tall mountains, you can see the big grasslands of both Bakarthach and Dhundhi. Bakarthach is full of grazing, and you can see many sheep and bovines. You can also explore the tiny streams that pass through this lush meadow. It is a spectacular region of greenery. On the other hand, Dhundhi is the grassland you camp at the Beas Kund trek's beginning. You see the Beas River flowing fast on one side and countless flowering blooms on the other side.

Deodar Forests

You can explore deodar forests during the Beas Kund trek. The deodar trees are so tall, and you will not be able to find the tops. You can also explore walnut and maple trees.

  • Don't use any alcohol or other intoxicants during the trek. The usage of drugs is strictly prohibited.
  • Don't ramble around the hills during nighttime.

Beas Kund Trek Reviews




In starting we were hesitating about this trekking but after a few hours, it became interesting and we start feeling the adventure vibe. The shlong valley looks very beautiful, must take your best cameras with you and try to carry fewer weights. n it is a memorable trip.




I went to Manali several times but this time I booked this beas-kund trek From Banbanjara and it went amazing, I was with my family ( 2 A, 2 C) and we completed it. initially, on the first day, it was a bit difficult as we had a night traveling but from day 2 we enjoyed it fully. the food was good and the guides we had are great. Recommended from our side and must do




It was a nice trek with complete safety, we did this from Banbanjara and were perfect. The stay was comfortable and the food they delivered is warm and freshly prepared. A big RECOMMENDATION for this.




We did this trek last week and it was a brilliant experience. We were 3 but had a group tour so we enjoyed it nicely. This was a well managed and memorable trip. fully satisfied with the camping and the food. Recommended to go with the group.




It was our first time and my friend book this for me too, it was a whole lot of experience, we visited many places On this trek like Jogni Water Fall, Hanuman Tibba, and so on, ad they all were so beautiful like we just get refreshed till next time we come here.




I along with 6 others went to beas kund trek. The whole trip was awesome and trekking from Manali all the way to Beas kund was majestic and full of adventure. The initial trek from Manali to Solang Valley is easy and the trek from Solang Valley to Dhundi is also easy. Memorable trip.




The real trek starts from Dhundi to Beas Kund where we trekked through rivers, snow, and mountains, and believe me, it was difficult. Traveling through moraines and making my way to the beas kund through the mountains rock was thrilling and dangerous, but to reach the beas kund was so satisfying. We were out of breath, water, and energy but still, it was awesome.




Beas Kund is the perfect place for nature lovers, so if you wanna have some peaceful time in the lap of nature away from the city crowd then this is what you must go for like I did. Thanks to my organizers who made this possible. Manali has been my dream place always. Would love to go again!!




I went to "Beas kund" with my parents in the month of January. well, Beas kund trek is one of the most beautiful short treks in the entire place of Himachal Pradesh. Life time memorable trip.




When I went to Manali last year, with my college friends, I visited various places, especially "Beas kund" which is the birthplace of the river Beas. It was a really good experience for us. we can say that "Beas kund" is an absolute delight for adventure seekers. Once you must visit that palace.
