Bhairav Kunda Trek is a kind of pilgrimage destination in Nepal that is popular among both domestic and international tourists. Bhairav Kunda Trek takes the trekkers to the untouched, unexplored and traditional villages of the central Nepal during the course of which they can enjoy the sightseeing views of the spectacular Himalayan landscapes. As the name itself suggests, Bhairav Kunda Trek is named after the destructive form of Hindu lord Shiva. ‘Bhairav’ is the destructive name of lord Shiva. The Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims who take part on this pilgrimage tour also have the opportunity to visit and explore the holy lake of Bhairav Kunda situated at an altitude of 4200 meters of height.
The visiting pilgrims pay homage, perform religious Pooja, and wash away their sins by taking holy dip at the pond during every Bhadra (August) Full Moon every year. As mentioned earlier, Bhairav Kunda Trek is a pilgrimage destination for many prospective tourists. It is, however, more popular and significant amongst the domestic ones rather than the foreign explorers. The unusual climatic condition coupled with the geographical location makes Bhairav Kunda Trek a dream for every nature and adventure lover.
Bhairav Kunda Trek starts from Jalbire, a small village located in Rasuwa district, nearby from the Capital city of Kathmandu. It is located around 81 kilometers north east from the Kathmandu Valley. Bhairav Kunda Trek is situated along the Nepal-Tibet border and as expected, it is the pride of both the nations.
