Bhairab Kunda Trek

Bhairab Kunda trek is a 10 day spiritual plus adventure trekking package where you will trek to the holy lake Bhairab Kunda in the Langtang National Park of Nepal. Bhairab Kunda spans an area of 13,400 sq.m meters at an altitude of 4250m. The lake got its name from the god Bhairab, who is regarded as 64 forms of Lord Shiva in his anger. It is a pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists, on every full moon of Bhadra month, hundreds of followers trek to the Bhairab Kunda lake and pray for the liberation of their ancestor’s departed soul.

This trek is done in full camping mode. It starts with a 5 hours jeep ride from Kathmandu to Jalbire in the Sindhupalchowk district. From Jalbire you will trek through remote villages settled by the ethnic community of Gurung, Sherpa, and Newar. The culture and lifestyle in those remote communities are still unchanged by the wave of time. On this trek, you can see beautiful mountains like Langtang 7234m, Dorje Lhakpa 6966m, Phurbi Chyachu 6637m, Gangchenpo 6,387m, Loenpo Gang 6979m, and more. The best time to go on the Bhairab Kunda trek is during April, May, October, and November where days are sunny warm and nights are cool. The trail passes from the tropical forest of Jalbire to the alpine scrub above Forest Camp. On the trail, you may get a very rare glimpse of endangered wild animals like Snow Leopard, Red Panda, Musk Deer, Himalayan Tahr, Himalayan Goral, Himalayan Black Bear, Grey Monkey, and more. The region is home to rare medicinal plants like Swertia, Jatamasi, and Cordyceps.
