Bhairabkunda Trekking

Bhairabkunda Trekking

Bhairab Kunda trekking is a newly-opened trekking in Nepal. Bhairab Kunda is named after a holy lake Bhairab and its lies to the north east of Kathmandu. Bhairav Kunda is a holy lake named lord Shiva the "Bhairav" who in this particular form is God of destruction destroying both good and evil. It is also the sacred pilgrimage site for spiritualists; which is named after the destructive feature of Holy Lord Shiva. People believe that plunging yourself in this Kunda (lake) will take away your sins, therefore many Hindu and Buddhist devotees visit and pay homage to this holy lake. Except Bhairab lake there also lies another popular lake which is called Panch Pokhari. Both places are off the beaten path and the trekkers must be self sufficient with camping gear and Nepalese crews.

Starting point of Bhairab trekking is from Jalbire, a small trading town accessible from Kathmandu by road. While trekking in this wilderness area one can observe the lifestyle of the local people, their culture, and tradition and immerse oneself in the beauty of nature. From the top ridge of Bhairab Kunda one can have a full glimpse of Rolwaling range, Jugal Himal and some of the Tibetan mountains as well.

We all know a powerful earthquake 7.8 magnitude shook Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 causing many human casualties and destroying some trekking areas. However, We will operate trekking in Ganesh Himal, Ruby Valley, Bhairab Kunda and Pach Pokhari areas accommodate by tented camping or basic tea house/home stay.
