Bhairav Kunda Trek

Bhairav Kuda Trek

Bhairav Kunda, certainly a great trek, which is located northeast of Kathmandu, is one such site. ‘Bhairav’ is the destructive manifestation of Lord Shiva, while ‘Kunda’ means pond. Due to its tantric connotations, Bhairav Kunda is a favored pilgrimage site for the dhami-jhnakris of Nepal, they are referred to as shamans who are said to communicate with spirits of the netherworld, and especially in August every year (during the Janai Purnima festival) they congregate in their hundreds here. Bhairav Kunda is also one of the newly opened trekking destinations in Nepal, so now you too can go on a 10-day trek to this mysterious ‘kunda’, that’s situated at quite a height, that is, 4,364 meters above sea level. This means you’ll be climbing quite a bit from Kathmandu, which is at an altitude of 1,350 meters above sea level. Nearby Bhairav Kunda is Panch Pokhari (Five Ponds), another sacred site that has similarly been opened for trekking in the recent past. Before proceeding further, here’s something on Rasuwa district where Bhairav Kunda is located.

It is the smallest of the 16 Himalayan districts, with its center, Dhunche, being about 120 km from Kathmandu.here are more than 100 ponds/lakes in and around the region, with the most famous being Gosainkunda, which is another popular destination for pilgrims and trekkers alike. However, your Bhairav Kunda trek will mostly take you through Sindhupalchok district on an ancient Nepal-Tibet trading route. You’ll get up-close and personal with the lifestyle and culture of the Tamang and Sherpa communities who inhabit this region. Now, the trek: first you drive down the Arniko Highway to a place called Jalbire (1,040 m), which takes around five to six hours. It’s a drive you’ll not find boring, since the scenery along the way is quite lovely; lots of hulking mountains, terraced paddy fields, compact little villages, et al. Jalbire has a predominantly Newari culture, but once you start your hike from there the next day, everything changes, and you’re in Tamang and Sherpa territory. You’ll be coming across numerous chortens (stupas) on the route thereon, Buddhism being the prevalent religion here.

Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs) is the local currency. (1 USD = ~ Rs.100 NPR). We can exchange most of the foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Small amounts of cash can also be exchanged at the hotel. The ongoing rate of exchange is visibly displayed. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export, and use of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupee note in Nepal. You should ensure that you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may also be fined. Despite having security advantage of traveler’ cheque, we prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and high rate of commission at the banks. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu and Thamel itself. There are quite several ATMs that are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee if you are using your foreign card.
