A religious trip to Bhairav Kunda Lake
From: Spain | On: 16 Apr, 2019
Since my wife and I are really into Hindu religion we decided to go trekking to Bhairav Kunda Lake in Nepal. It was really a fruitful experience and I learned a lot about the religious importance of the lake and why people respected it so much.
Besides that we got to experience some unique villages of Sherpa and Tamang community. It was really inspiring seeing the hardworking people of the remote areas in Nepal. Also the mountain ranges of Langtang region looks stunning.
I would definitely love to visit the country again. If you are planning of trekking in Nepal then I would recommend that you book through CoreTreks as they are highly professional and experienced.
