Bhairav Kunda Trekking
- Outline Itinerary
The Bhairav Kunda trekking will take you to the Shaman pilgrimage site through the traditional villages of Shaman that still hold the same original integrity and environment that lead you to the holy lake Bhairav Kunda. Lord Shiva is regarded as the creator as well as the destructor of life. The lake received its name after that very destructive nature of Lord Shiva. People from all over the country visit this sacred mountain to rinse all their sins away in the month of Bhadra during Full Moon. Bhairav is the name of the destructive image of lord Shiva, and “kunda” here resembles lake. It is located in the northeast part of Kathmandu next to the Panch Pokhari and closer to Nepal-Tibetan border. Jalbire is where the trek starts in the Arniko Highway. Newars, Gurungs and Sherpas are the major castes that reside on the trail of this trek. Mesmerizing views of Jugal Himal, Tibetan Himalayas and the Rolwaling Range can be seen from the top of Bhairav Kunda.
