Introduction To Bhairav Kunda Trek
The Bhairav Kunda Trek is a unique off-the-beaten trail trek in the Langtang region of Nepal. Locals are ready to serve you with wonderful hospitality and respect in this region. Bhairav Kunda in Sindhupalchok district is a newly opened trekking destination. This is famous for exploring the lake at an altitude of 4,240 meters.
It is located near the Tibetan border, one of the most attractive areas close to Kathmandu. The lake is sacred to Hindus. Thousands of pilgrims visit this lake during the full moon day in August every year. The word Bhairav is a “destructive” form of Lord Shiva in Hinduism which comes from Sanskrit, the oldest language in the world.
In addition to visiting the sacred lake, the Bhairav Kunda Trek offers magnificent mountain views of the Dorje Lakpa, Jugal Himal, Madiya, Phurbi Ghhyachu, Rolwaling Range, and Tibetan Himalayan range. The Bhairav Kunda Trekking trail leads to the peaceful Bhairav Kunda Lake, crossing fascinating mountain views, green forests, and various ethnic villages. During the Bhairav Kunda Trek, you will have opportunities to get close to ethnic people and study their culture, traditions, and daily life.

A famous sacred Lake for Hindus
It is believed that bathing in this sacred lake washes away all sins. You can also visit a Hindu temple near Bhairav Kunda Lake. Due to the fewer trekkers and unavailability of tea house lodges, we can only camp on this trek. Camp trekking is a bit more expensive than trekking in other normal areas as you have to arrange accommodation and food yourself.
Spring and autumn are suitable times for the Bhairav Kund Trek. The trek is possible throughout the year. But the monsoon season is not very good because the trails are slippery and risky.
This Trek is located at a lower altitude than the Langtang region and other high-altitude treks in Nepal. The highest altitude of this trek is 4,240 meters although you may encounter some steep uphill. This 10 days trip is a moderate level that requires physical fitness to complete.
This trek can be the perfect destination for hikers who have been curious about the religion of the nation for thousands of years with religious values. The amazing beauty of this route will give you lifetime memories.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
