Event Information :A place of historic significance, Beas Kund is one of the most beautiful places in the Dhauladhar range (literally ‘the white range’) of the mighty Himalayas. Besides being regarded as sacred, Beas Kund is where the river Beas originates from and offer spectacular views of the nearby located Shitidhar, Ladakhi, Friendship and Hanuman Tibba peaks. One of the most alluring treks in the Kullu region, the trail offers panoramic views of the Pir Pangal range as well, and follows the banks of the river Beas. This is one of the most popular short treks through the Solang valley and takes you through an expanse of picturesque mountain landscapes.
This trek is suitable for people for all age groups, and no prior trekking experience is required to join in.
7 October: Manali – Solang – Dhundi (9,000 ft)
Reach Manali early in the morning and drive to the Solang valley up to the Dhundi road-link to being the first leg of the trek. Solang boasts of some of the best skiing slopes of India and is the starting point of many treks in Himachal Pradesh.
Gradually ascending from the valley for around 8 km, the trail follows river Beas, many times crossing the stream from one side to the other, getting us to Dhundi. The quaint little mountain hamlet that has nothing to offer save scenic beauty and resonating silence, Dhundi is another alpine meadow full of wild flowers. Set up camp for overnight stay.
8 October: Dhundi – Bakarthach (10,800 ft)
Today 6 km long trek takes us over loosely held boulders and moraines of a dying glacier at places. We continue up to a scenic campsite at the pastures of Bakarthach which is a high-altitude meadow and literally means ‘shepherd’s field’. These enchanting meadows are very popular pastures for the Gaddis – a hardy nomadic tribe of shepherds, and it’s easy to find flocks of sheep grazing peacefully in this pastoral idyll. These sun and wind swept meadows will be a feast for your senses. Overnight stay in tents.
9 October: Bakarthach – Beas Kund (11,600 ft) – Bakarthach
An early start to the day and a short climb up the ridge through Bhoj Patr will get us to Beas Kund. Bhoj Patr gets its name from the fact that the area has a lot of Bhoj Patr (birch) trees. We will spend time here at the glacial tarn of Beas Kund – the source of one of the major rivers of north India. The legend is that Sage Vyas, the author of the great epic Mahabharata, meditated here. After a full day of excursion in the Beas Kund plateau, we will come back to Bakarthach in the evening.
10 October: Bakarthach – Solang – Manali
After breakfast we start our return trek to Solang; we will take the same route through Dhundi. On getting down, we’ll board the vehicle waiting for us which will get us to Manali. End of the trek. From here, one can either catch a bus back home the same day or spend some more time in Manali and explore the town and nearby places.

About Us : Intrigued, as you might be, as to why we call ourselves JANUARY THE FOURTEENTH, there is no simple answer to this question, rather none at all.
Redefining adventure, travel and leisure is all we know and we know it well. Our programmes offer an unmatched and unconventional holiday experience for that (not-so) hard-earned vacation from your school, college or workplace with friends and family.
JANUARY THE FOURTEENTH is run by a bunch of avid mountain climbers and travellers with an aim of introducing more and more people to the mountains like they’ve never seen before. Far from the madding crowd, we take people out on treks and hikes (apart from the many other outdoor activities that we have to offer) to the many ranges of the mighty Himalayas, still unpolluted by man. We encourage that explorer in you to come out and take the road less travelled. Well beyond mere outdoor recreation, we deliver inspirational holiday experiences too.
Our unique tailor-made getaways have a mesmerizing lure to them which might draw you into the unknown – searching for lost treasures, questing for mysterious artifacts, rescuing a princess, or making a heroic journey back to a soul mate.
Here are just a few of the many outdoor activities that we organize:
White Water Rafting
Yoga in the Himalayas
School and College Trips
