Bhairav Kunda Trek

Bhairav Kunda Trek is a spiritual and pilgrimage type of trekking destination in Nepal which follows the beautiful Bhairav Kunda Lake. It is located at an altitude of 4250 meters above the sea level. Bhairav Kunda Trek lies to the northeast from the Capital city of Kathmandu and is situated along the Nepal-Tibet border. Bhairav Kunda Trek is named after the word ‘Bhairav’ which is the destructive form of Hindu Lord Shiva. Both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims visit the beautiful Bhairav Kunda Lake every year during the Nepali month of Bhadra which usually coincides with August month of the English calendar.
Visiting the local monastery and Gompa, travelling past the local villages inhabited by the indigenous people living in the region, looking at the old tradition and culture of the people of the region are some of the highlights of the Bhairav Kunda Trek besides the obvious opportunity to view panoramic mountain views and other landscapes. Mountains like Dorje Lakpa, Phurbi Ghyachu, Madiya, Jugal Mountain Range, among others, are the major mountain peaks which you will see during the course of the trek. Likewise, you will also get to see many endangered flora and fauna who reside in the forests in the region.
 Bhairav Kunda Trek at ‘Himalayan Trek Nepal’ is a 12-day long itinerary which begins with a 5-hour drive from Kathmandu to Jalbire. Jalbire is the starting point of the magnificent trekking experience which you will experience in the following days. First you will pass through the villages of Chanaute and Khani Gaon, and then climb further uphill before finally reaching the popular lake of Bhairav Kunda. After taking holy bath at Bhairav Kunda, you will then make a return trip through Sherpa Gaon to Larche. Bhairav Kunda Trek is possible throughout the year but it is better to avoid monsoon season in Nepal as the trail becomes slippery and is difficult to trek.

My friend and I had never been to Nepal, we decided to go on a spur of the moment decision with no expectations. We ended up meeting Prakash from Osho at the airport in Kathmandu and from there we arranged some activities including a scenic flight to Everest and of course trekking! Our experience trekking was incredible, the highlight of our trip. Our guides Ram and Prakash were wonderful and the local Nepalese people in the Annapurna region are amazing. The Poon Hill trek is highly recommended! Thanks to Osho for everything, I highly recommend Dinesh and Co. Our only regret is not staying in Nepal for longer. I'll be back again!

We had excellent experience by Osho Vision Treks. They are so helpful and friendly. They understand what you want to do and make a nice programme! We are happy to meet them.

I was initially somewhat nervous about what my adventure would entail, but in the trusty hands of my wonderful guide Prakash Khanal, my only challenges each day were the hills and what meals to order! A sign of a great trek is one you'll never forget, a sign of a great guide is one that you'll miss. A truly fabulous experience all round.

We had two nights already organized personally on Nepal, but we wanted spend more time for exploring the country.So we met with the people from Osho Vision, who prepared for us complete program for 8 days with personal driver. Last night we spent in Happy Home hotel in city center and once again it was excellent service and welcoming staff. Many thanks to all staff from agency, we spent wonderful time with the perfect professional services.

In Kathmandu there is so many tour operators and there is really hard to chose good one. There is few reason I would really like to recommend Osho Vision Treks: 1) We got really good prize. Mr. Prakash met us on our arrival in airport and was really helpful and trustworthy. We compare his prize with several other tour operators and he really give us the best one. Here is contact on him ( - +9779851013032) 2) Owner of the office Mr. Dinesh is really great guy. He is busy businessman but really helpful. We trusted him with our passports and China visa and he manage to pick it up for us very safely. In the end of our stay he even invited us for a dinner. Really great guy! 3) Best of all was our guide Udaye. We chose him based on other great reviews here and we was definitely not disappointed. He is young and smart guide with sense of humor and great knowledge about Nepal and mountain. Take him specially if you are planning to visit Manaslu region. He was born here and knows everything about it.

Osho Vision has a superbly professional team and I was looked after way beyond my expectations by Kedar Mani Khanal. Every little detail from hotel and flight bookings to professional guides was faultless. All of this was delivered with personal service and a smile. I will never need to go anywhere else for any sight seeing, mountain trekking or any of the other things I choose to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my first trip to Nepal such an effortless pleasure! Paula Mayura.

Just fantastic.Osho vision made my dream of Treking in the Himalayas come true.The company were professional and my guide Kapil KC was nothing short of fantastic.He was kind,considerate and clever.I enjoyed his company and he was the guide I always used.I ended up doing four treks with the company over 10 weeks including Everest and the Annapurna trek.It is fair to say that this is a reflection of how highly I rated the company and my guide.I apologise for the delay in posting this .However I am still in contact with Kapil as we remain friends.He still works for the company and as do many individuals.I am confident that their standards will still remain the same.Avoid cheaper companies.You do not want to be stuck on a trek in the world's highest mountains with a dodgy company!!Some are.

“Beyond expectations” W e organised our 3 week adventure around Nepal with Dineash from Osho Vision Treks. In our initial meeting he listened to our requests & designed a tour according to our wishes. Our trip included a comfortable Scorpio car, a proficient courteous driver (Dipak) sightseeing around Kathmandu & the Kathmandu Valley, a 2 day rafting trip on the Trishuli river, Pokhara, a soft 2 day trek in the foothills of the Annapurnas, Lumbini, a 3 night 4 day package in the Royal Chitwan National Park, Nagarkot, Dhuulikhel and back to Kathmandu. Our trip included all hotels & breakfasts & full board when rafting & at Chitwan. Most of our accommodation was excellent. Dipak was a great driver, always on time & an extremely safe driver. Dineash rang everyday to check all was well on our trip. We had an absolutely fantastic time in Nepal thanks to Dineash & his team. I would highly recommend his services to one & all.
