Trip Overview of Bhairav Kunda Trek
More of a Spiritual trek, Bhairav Kunda Trek follows the least traveled route to the beautiful Bhairav Kunda Lake which is located at 4250m altitude height. Existing to the northeast of Kathmandu and near to Nepal- Tibet border, Bhairav Kunda is named after the destructive form of Lord Shiva- Bhairav. Hindu and Buddhist Devotees along with shamanic practitioners visit the exotic Bhairav Kunda Lake every year in the full moon of Bhadra which usually coincides with the august month of English Calendar.
