Beas Kund Trek
The Beas Kund Trek itinerary follows through vast open fields with lush green meadows.

And, with the shifting of seasons at the valley, the beauty of the Beas Kund trail also shifts green meadows to a white sheet of snow. As during the winters, the entire valley is a replica of the Kashmir Valley, with a trail through snow and to the frozen Beas Kund. Enjoy the snow and enjoy the views from and around the lake. It is a perfect spot to glimpse some of the famous Himalayan Peaks like- the Friendship peak, Shitidhar, Ladakhi, and Hanuman Tibba peaks, on a pleasant and clear day.
Bhrigu Lake Trek
Located at an altitude of 14,100 ft. The Bhrigu Lake trek offers a serene and panoramic view of the high altitude mountain lake.

Described as one of the peaceful treks, the Bhrigu trek trail journeys through calming views of the Dhauladhar range such as Hanuman Tibba (Highest peak in Dhauladhar range 5928 Meter), Manali peak, and Friendship Peak. As one of the sacred treks among the Hindus, the Bhrigu Lake is believed to be the spot where the Hindu Rishi Bhrigu used to meditate. Thus, the water of the Bhrigu lake is also holy. During winters, the Bhrigu Lake glistens with a thin layer of snow, as its temperature falls enough to freeze the entire lake so that you can even try walking over it. So this is also one of the best Summer Treks.
