"Bhairav Kunda" (a sanskrit phrase meaning holy lake), was named after a destructive aspect of Lord Shiva. The place "Bhairav Kunda" is located to the northeast of Kathmandu and right nex to Panch Pokhari but closer to the Nepal-Tibetan border. After 5 hours drive we arrive at the trek starting point called Jalbire. Jalbire is a traditional small town full of "Newari" culture. We are going to spend the first night of our outdoor adventure right nearby the small "newari" town of Jalbire. Bhairav Kunda trekking group has to be self-contained, as there are no lodges/tea houses. Due to this incredible latitudinal range and an unusual geographical and climatic mix, walking this area is a naturalist's dream.The last day we enjoy a scenic drive back to Kathmandu.
