(Delhi-Chandigarh-Manali-Solang Valley-Dhundi Village-Bakarthach-Beas Kund )
Beas kund is a high altitude alpine lake situated at an altitude of 3700 m surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks from all sides. We took this trek in the first week of May 2017 under scorching heat of Delhi and we were shocked after looking at amount of snow we found on this trek. We were the first one for the season to open this trek but this trek was truly awesome feeling for us although I was first time sunburned during this trek which I realized later after reaching home which took a week to get vanish.
Our Itinerary :-
Start : – Delhi to Manali (Overnight)
Day 1:- Manali to Solang Valley to Dhundi Village (By Road-22 Km)
Day 2:- Dhundi to Beas Kund to Dhundi (12 Km Trek)
Day 3:- Dhundi to Manali to Delhi (By Road)
The trek to Beas Kund is one of the most beautiful short trek in Himachal Pradesh. From Solang Nallah, the route winds through the famous Solang Valley. On this trek you will see amazing views of lush green meadows, glaciers and snow-capped mountain peaks. The trail goes via Dhundi and Bakarthach to enter the Beas Kund glacier, the birthplace of the River Beas. This is an enjoyable and Moderate level trek.
Day 1 :- We accomplished this trek somehow as it was a spontaneous plan of Beas Kund Trek. Therefore we arranged nothing for this trek except little courage & no guide, food, no tent. After reaching Solang Valley from Manali we realized the necessity of these things for this trek from the Guard at Check Post. This trek lies on new rohtang tunnel road therefore the guard used to check every person or vehicle going through that road from solang. After convincing the guard we move forward with walking for 35 Km away Dhundi Village but after 1 Km from Check Post we got Construction Truck who gave us lift till the village and we reached the Village Camp Site in the evening.
Our Shelter & Food :- But truly there was nothing except few camps there, then after conversation with Camps operator we found shelter with them and food along with guide till Beas Kund for next morning as their group of hikers were supposed to be coming few days after so it was available till then.
Then we took a little stroll towards Beas Kund and found some beautiful breathtaking views of snow covered glaciers or peaks. In this time we also met some kids from Gujarat School coming down after having fun in the snow. It was a ultimate evening for both of us, me & my friend with delicious food in the night.
Day 2 :- Next morning we went towards to Beas Kund along with our guide. It was a time of May 2017 so we were not expecting too much snow this time of year but after few hour of trek snow getting more and more visible into our trail. And after Bakar Thach it was complete deep snow or heavy snow field. I was super shocked and got excited to see such amount of snow in the month of may. We reached to Beas Kund through snow covered trail safely with the help of our Guide with some dancing in the snow and had our lunch there. After taking really amazing pics we came back with plenty of awesome memories of this short & breathtaking trek.
Somehow we got lucky in this way but if anybody wants to do this trek without anyone help then he/she can carry rented tent from Manali and some ready to eat food for survival. As its not a long trek therefore it can be done in minimum time, if weather supports.
These are the some pics of our experience.
