Highlights

Bhairav Kunda trek offer beautiful Himalayan scenery, Holy Bhairav Kund, lush valley and beautiful landscape. It is non tourist trekking trail in Nepal as only very few tourist trek in this trail. So, if you are looking for a less crowded area as your trekking destination then this may be the right choice for you.

The Sanskrit meaning of “Bhairav Kund” is a holy lake named after a destructive name of Lord Shiva “The Bhairav”. Bhairav Kunda trekking is non tourist trekking trail in Nepal located to the northeast of Kathmandu and next right to Panch Pokhari and closer to Nepal – Tibet border. The trail offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity.

Bhairav Kunda Trek can be categorized as pilgrimage trek as it take you to the scared pilgrimage site of Bhairav Kunda (lake) which lies at an altitude of 4,250m. Our journey begins from a drive from Kathmandu to Jalbire which is 81 km north east of Kathmandu and takes about five to six hour to reach Jalbire. Your trail winds along an old trade route between Nepal and Tibet. You will spend your first night experiencing the ‘Newari’ culture of Jalbire. We travel through a mixture of beautiful mountain scenery and the terraced fields and characteristic houses of rural villages from different ethnic groups.
The trail leads through beautiful valley of Chanaute, Khani Gaon, Forest Camp, Pati and finally reaching at Bhairab Kund. From the base of Khani gaon following the thick alpine forest mainly comprising Rhododendron and oak inhibited with many endangered animals like red panda, snow leopard, Himalayan black bear etc. and enjoying the beautiful sound of birds chirping throughout the journey we ascend up gradually towards Pati. Altitude Sickness is common symptoms seen among traveler who are traveling for the first time in such high altitude. Here we take a brief rest to overcome the sickness and acclimatize with the climate and geography. In Pati you can see some spectacular view of several glorious Tibetan plateaus, and the peak is the Jugal Himal range. Our trail now climbs a steep hill making an exhausting journey up to the altitude of 4,250m. to reach Bhairav Kunda. Near the Kunda you can see a temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the devotee visit this temple and pay their homage to the lord Shiva and bath in the Bhairav Kunda. After exploring its vicinity we trek down to Sherpa Gaon travel around the forest and observing the amazing view of Jugal Himal range. During the 10 days trek, we can observe the life style of nomadic people virtually unchanged by time, different ways of life, culture and come in contact with the people in the small villages passing through the dense forestations and meadows. We can have an excellent view of Rolwalling range, Jugal Himal and some of the Tibetan Mountains from the top of the Bhairav Kunda which includes the peaks of Dorje Lakpa (6966), Madiya (6257M) and Phurbi Ghhyachu (6637m).
The unusual climatic and geographical mix make this area a naturalist’s dream and a Mecca for those who appreciate traditional cultures. Autumn & spring seasons are the best time trekking in Bhairav Kunda but we can arrange this trek throughout year as per travelers / trekkers demand with memorable adventure trekking in Nepal Himalaya.

Trip Itinerary

Our journey begins with a drive of about four to five hours to Jalbire. After driving for about three hours towards the north east from Kathmandu valley, we reach to the place called Balephi. Balephi was once used to be one of the main towns on the trade route to Tibet. The whole Balephi valley is magnificient and roads up to here are in a good condition. We can have a scenic mountain views throughout our drive. Further, drive from Balephi to Jalbire takes about two hours. We now have to drive through the bumping roads to reach Jalbire. If in case, the vehicle could not go further then we have to walk from there which takes about four hours walk. Jalbire is a lovely Newar village set on the banks of the Balephi River, where we gain an insight into the Newari culture and see the Hindu temple of Lord Bishnu. Overnight at Jalbire.

Leaving Chanaute, we have to walk further about six hours to reach Khani Gaon. Khani Gaon is a Newar village, also known as Dalle Pokhari after it’s ‘cute lake’ tucked in a hollow near the school. As the trail is an ascent up to steep hills on a small path, the trek can be quite challenging. We’ll be inspired though the stunning villages, streams, and the excitement of passing local schools. According to the history, on the middle of 18th century, before the unification of Nepal, there was a fight between Gorkha and Bhaktapur and the people of Bhaktapur fled here and eventually settled in this place. So, majority of people here are of Newar. Overnight at Khani Gaon.
