We now begin our Beas Kund trek, and in its first leg, trek to Bakartach. It is a gradual and long climb through the mountains to this picturesque camping site. You will absolutely love camping by the river, and listening to the sound of the water splashing on the rocks.
This is the longest, toughest and the most important section of the Beas Kund trekking as it will take you near the origin of the river and then back to Dhundi. Just as you reach a little higher from the starting point, amazing views start appearing. The place has a heap of boulders and makes an excellent photography spo; velvety slopes; easily distinguishable spruce trees. As gradually grasslands take over, admire the views, resume your hike, and after a while, you will reach another viewpoint. In the distance, you will see the glacier along with the river emerging from it and beyond the glaciers, barren mountains will be visible.
Continue your Beas Kund trekking tour and arrive at yet another bewitching spot. The mountains surrounding this spot have certain landslide marks, which are full of rocks and visible snow. We reach Beas Kund after 4 hrs of walk where you will find a small alpine lake with bright blue water. The numerous small streams together making up the main river will be clearly distinguishable to you; some arise from the nearby glaciers while others have their origin in the pond itself.
