Beaskund Glacial Lake – a trek that when ends holds a beginning


A short and a famous trek in the Kullu Valley of the state of Himachal Pradesh, the trek is an introduction to the beautiful mountainscape. Starting from Manali to Solang to Bakerthach and then to Beaskund, while trekking through this trail over the boulders, the fine greeny meadows, crossing the water streams, walking over the glacial moraines one experiences the magnanimity of an Himalayan trek. As one climbs up ending its trail to the glacial tarn, then one comes to large basin and the origin of the Beas river, the lake is considered to be holy according to the Hindu mythology having a historical significance. On reaching the lake one absorbs in, the picturesque, a small high perched lake being peacefully fed by the softening of the glaciers and the snow on the craggy mountain peaks, such congruity of the scenery tends to get captured effortlessly for a long time. The Beaskund trek takes one through breathtaking views of the Dhauladhar range (the white range), the Shitidhar, the Manali peak, the Hanuman Tibba peak and Friendship peak. The trek to this high altitude alpine glacial tarn is easy-tempered with just a few steep inclines making it idle for the beginners, straying oneself from the bustling city life and trailing along the banks of the river Beas while looking at the snow covered peaks and witnessing this secluded prodigy is blissful.

Hanuman Tibba (5,990mts.) and then pitches at the spot for the overnight stay.
