I along with 6 others went to beas kund trek. The whole trip was awesome and trekking from manali to all the way to beas kund was majestic and full of adventure. Our guide Sonu thakur was very good.Intial trek from manali to solang valley is easy and trekfrom solang valley to Dhundi is also easy. The real trek starts from Dhundi to Beas Kund where we trekked through rivers,snow and mountains and believe me it was difficult. Travelling through moraines and making way to the beas kund through the mountains rock was thrilling and dangerous, but to reach the beas kund was so satisfying. We were out of breath,water and energy but still it was awesome.
