Bhairab Kunda Trek
This trek gets its name from the famous Bhairab Kunda Lake. The Sanskrit word Bhairav Kunda when translated into English, simply means ‘Holy Lake’. This lake lies north of Kathmandu, near the Nepal-Tibet border. Our trek starts in Jalbire where we arrive on a five-hour bus ride from Kathmandu. From here we trek across remote villages and a beautiful landscape, enjoying every minute of our journey.
Along the trail superb views of the Dorje Lakpa, Madiya and Phurbi Ghhyachu peaks make our trip less tiring. The trail lies very close to the Tibetan border and we can see the influence of Tibetan culture even in the Nepalese side.
