Trip Overview

Bhairav Kunda Trek takes you to the holy and pristine lake placed in the Langtang region of Nepal. The name “Bhairav” refers to the destructive form of Lord Shiva who is always angry and ready for destruction. It is said that tantric and jhakris (the people who use spells and magic) used to visit this place to communicate with the spirits. This auspicious place has its own importance amongst the Hindu pilgrims therefore, we can find many Hindu pilgrims visiting this place during the full moon day in the month of August. Apart from its religious importance, the lake is known for its spectacular location. The top of the lake offers some outstanding views of Rolwaling range, Dorje Lakpa and many other mountains that lies in Tibetan border.

Being a newly opened trail, the route has preserved its uniqueness intact.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
