This lake is close to Kathmandu Valley and is newly opened for trekkers’ destinations. This place is visited by thousands of domestic tourists every year for religious purposes.

 It is situated next right to PanchPokhari, which is a fusion of nature, religions, art, culture, and spiritual aspects of the Himalayas. It is a famous sacred pilgrimage site of Shamans, Buddhism, and Hinduism.  Many religious peoples visit this holy place to bath away their sins during the month of Bhadra (August-September) at the full moon.

Bhairav Kunda holy mountain lake is at a high altitude of 4150m. Unlike other remote area trekking, this pilgrimage trek to the holy site will be your unique experience to explore the myths and mysteries of this lake.

The name ‘Bhirav Kunda” denotes the angry and ferocious form of Lord Shiva. It is believed that he changed his form during the destruction of the world. And the word Kunda denotes the pond or lake.

Trek to Bhairav Kunda will give you several views of the Nepalese and Tibetan Himalayas.

You will see snow-capped mountains like Dorje Lakpa (6,966m), Madiya (6,257m), PhurbiGhhyachu (6,637m), Jugalsurrounding with many other majestic views of the Himalayas from the lake and will notice many cultural explorations from Newar, Bahun, Chettri and Sherpa natives.

Taking a bath inside the Kunda is said to release you from all of your sins. Trekking to this region will simply delight you, and you will return with a fresh mind and soul. There is also a small Hindu Temple which is nearby to this pond. You will experience and learn about the cultural importance of Hindu, Brahim, and Newar community peoples.

Our journey to Lake Bhirav will start from Kathmandu with the drive to Jalbire.
