Bhairab Kunda Trekking is a Spiritual Trekking Trail also known as Sindu Heritage Trails of alpine fresh water lakes. It is a less frequented trek circuit situated just outside the Kathmandu valley near the Tibetan border. It holds the etymological distinction of being a favored pilgrimage site for the Hindu religious followers. Bhairab Kunda is a favored destination for shamans who are said to communicate with spirits of the neither world.
This very lake is dedicated to the most revered and fierce manifestation of Hindu deity Lord Shiva. In the full moon day of August Bhairab Kunda is visited by thousands of pilgrims to take a holy dip.
This is a holy trekking journey of green forests, beautiful peaks, various ethnic hamlets, and breathtaking mountain views. This trek offers the mountain views of, Dorje Lakpa, Madiya, Phurbi Ghhyachu, Jugal Himal, Rolwaling and the Tibetan Himalayan Range. While trekking, you will get opportunities to be closer to the ethnic folks and study their cultures and traditions.
As it is an off the beaten trekking route teahouse lodges are not available, hence camping is inevitable.
