Bhairav Kunda Trek

Bhairav Kunda is a newly opened trekking destination in the Sindhupalchok district. Located at the most attractive areas close to Kathmandu near the Tibetan border this trek is known for exploring a high altitude lake named ‘Bhairav Kunda’ (4,240m). This trek follows the most preserved holy pilgrimage sites with pristine lakes and incredible landscapes.

Every year thousands of pilgrims visit this region during the month of ‘Bhadra’ (August/ September). Besides the religious importance, this trek offers the splendid mountain views of Rolwaling range, Dorje Lakpa (6,966m), Madiya (6,257m), Phurbi Ghhyachu (6,637m), Jugal Himal and the magnificent Tibetan Himalayan range.

Bhairav Kunda trek starts with a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu & then you will be driven to Chanute from where the trek begins. Throughout the trek, the trail passes through diverse landscapes flaunting beautiful peaks, green forests, and various ethnic villages. Additionally, it also lets you get closer to the inhabitants, study their culture and traditions.

This spiritual trek passes through several colourful villages and is absolutely off the beaten camping trek. Teahouse lodges are not available due to less number of trekkers visiting this region. It is a moderate trek and anyone physically fit can complete it.

Bhairav Kunda Trek is possible throughout the year but it is better to avoid this trail during the monsoon season as it becomes slippery and risky. Experience the spirituality and magnificence of off the beaten trails in Nepal with Bhairav Kunda trek!
