The Beas Kund trek is one of the most popular treks in Manali which takes one to the origin of the river Beas at an altitude of 3690 mts. and many of the ancient glaciers located around it. Mythology has it that Beas Rishi meditated here and wrote the epic Mahabharata, A magical place. Beas kund is surrounded by the peaks of Hanuman Tibba, Ladakhi peak, Manali peak, Muker beh, Sheti Dhar peak and the well known Friendship Peak. There are cascading waterfalls on the way and crystal-clear lake called as Beas Kund. The route to Beas Kund starts near Solang nallah. The trail to Beas kund from Solang Nallah is approximately 15 kms long. A jeep road goes up to Dhundi from Solang Nallah where the SASE, Manali, has a study unit. Route to Beas Kund is three days average trek, that will take us through snow fields (in winter) moraines, meadows, over boulders and glaciers. From Dhundi to Bakar thatch - a highland meadow is a leisurely walk of 2-3 hours. The next stop on this trek is Beas Kund a holy lake located in the lap of massive mountain ranges. Base camp to Hanuman Tibba is ahead of Beas Kund. As we start after two hours of gradual trek, the trail goes uphill for a short distance on moraines, and then traverses over a glacier field to the Beas Kund. After reaching Beas kund we can see many glaciers around, which many of these glaciers were formed millions of years ago. Some are black, covered with debris fallen from up the mountain slides, some blue or green which are meant to be the oldest and some newly formed glaciers. Most of the glaciers are melting so fast each year and falling apart because of the global warming. The trek to the glaciers, distance can be near or far from Beas kund and depends on the season which you are trekking. When one reaches up to the glacier, the origin and the source of water flowing down to the valley, can see the clear effects of the misbalance humans have made to the nature. Once we approach the glaciers mouth, the information to the participants are given precisely that how we can preserve these precious glaciers and decrease the effects and the bad habits made by us. Glaciers are essential part of the human kind, because humans and all the creatures on earth cannot survive without water, thus we should not pollute the nature as we gonna die before or after the death of glaciers. So this kind of awareness treks, the real concern of our life should be made by people who have good knowledge about mountains and are in adventure field from years. In the end we should act as preservers not as destructors, because many of the things on earth have become extinct.
