Bhairav Kunda trekking to a Shaman pilgrimage site through untouched traditional villages in spectacular Himalayan landscapes to reach the holy lake Bhairav Kund is named after the destructive aspect of Lord Shiva. It is one of the sacred pilgrimage sites for Shamans. Both Hindus and Buddhist devotees visit this high altitude 4250m holy mountain lake to pay homage and bathe away sins during every Bhadra (August) Full Moon.
Jalbire, the starting point for this trek is a five hour bus ride from Kathmandu towards the Tibetan border. We travel through a mixture of beautiful mountain scenery and the terraced fields and characteristic houses of rural villages from different ethnic groups.
At Bhairav Kunda trek you will spend your first night experiencing the ''Newari'' culture of Jalbire and next day trail winds along an old trade route between Nepal and Tibet through a number of unspoilt Buddhist villages, past chortens and Sherpa houses. The unusual climatic and geographical mix makes this area a naturalist's dream and a mecca for those who appreciate traditional cultures.
Along the trail you will experience spectacular views of mountains in Tibet and the Jugal Himal section of the Himalayan Range, which includes the peaks of Dorje Lakpa (6966), Madiya (6257M) and Phurbi Ghhyachu (6637m). Trekkers carry only day pack and walk at their own pace. Average hiking per day will be 6-7 hrs.
