    Beas Kund is one of the most popular treks that one can do in a longer weekend in Manali. The trek takes you away from the hustle and bustle of your city life. The trek was so nice and very refreshing for me and my friends.

    Loved the entire experience. Thanks to my buddies who planned for this trip. The drive from Manali to Beas Kund will take your breath away. The snow clad mountains look so near. The temperatures are extremely low up there so make sure you are covered well. The trekking was really beautiful after the whole jurney. camping in the cold and in between the mountains was really exciting. the tour experts also organised various activities for us at the campsite. bhirgu lake was also really beautiful, although very small but the location was breath taking

    Two of the most beautiful lakes in North India are the Beas Kund and Bhrigu Lake. Both of them are located in the middle of cherish-able location. I am a solo traveler and I have been visiting many places in North India continuously for last five years. Some places I have visited more than 3 times in these five years. But Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund Lake were missed until last January when the climate was adverse to do trekking or a visit to the many places in North India. The lakes were also filled with snow. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. But sad about the fact that I could not enjoy the real beauty of these lakes when water is blue and the surrounding is green, completely. I went till the base point by my bike and then I met some group from Mumbai doing trekking and they were camping there. I asked them about the routes and all and they were also yet to start trekking. So I though I just join them while trekking and stay will be arranged myself somewhere near. Anyway I had my bike with me. Hence I was not worried about the stay. Also there was a chance to get tents at the base. The steep climbs were actually challenging me and I was eagerly waiting for the whole night on my arrival day to conquer those climbs at a fast pace. It was my nineteenth trekking trip to the Himalayas. It was equally challenging as some other treks I have done in Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir. I reached till 14000 feet height and from the top, the whole region looked so glamorous. Honestly. It was the most scenic location in Himachal Pradesh. Both the lakes have special features. But the ice sheets on them did not let me enjoy its real beauty well. May be the next time, I will be able to go there during the time both of them are in their real colours. But guys, try this trekking trip. You will be amused.

    Adventure is hidden throughout the ways to Bhrigu Lake and Beas Kund. It was short trip for us. Just four days but we had the maximum fun. We went through Thrillophilia.com and they helped us enjoy the trip even though we selected only four days. The accommodation and food were better than we expected. Last time when we went to Kashmir, the food was really bad. But this one was fine. We are thankful to the guides who came with us. We are from South India and Hindi is not so good. But we could communicate with the guides well. All of them were Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. But we became close within a short time. There were not many people in the group. Since we booked only for four days, we were asked to join them from the second day of the original trip and on the fourth day we visited Beas Kund together and the other group was taken again back to continue the trip. We are very thankful to them for co-operating with us throughout the trip. If we had more time, we would have continued the trip. Unfortunately, we got only four days. We will be booking through the same platform next time also as we are very happy with the service we got from the time of booking the package to the end day of the trip.

    Awesome times spent with family and friends. The height of 11.000ft might seem difficult at first but later as you get used to the efforts and the stunning sights you will realise that each step you take is totally worth it! Good job done by the people organising the trek.
