I’m sure most of us have travelled to Manali quite a lot if you love mountains. One single river that you will always notice is Beas river. It keeps flowing just next to the road that takes you to Manali. Have you ever wondered if this river were the same if you go up to its origin?
And the answer is IT IS NOT!!!
This picture is from Vyas Kund base camps which is around 30 kilometres from Manali and establishes the origin of Beas river as Vyas Kund. The lake was named after Rishi Vyas who wrote The epic Hindu mythology Mahabharat. He was the son of rishi Prashar who is known as the father of Hindu Astrology. Local stories like this make more curious to travel and explore more and find out even interesting stories. During the trail, somehow I feel connected to the story and could imagine living it too. In this picture, you can also see the hanuman tibba glacier range. Hanuman tibba is the highest peak of Dhauladhar mountain range in Himalayas. .
In the last couple of months, I have travelled to Manali around three times already but it’s disheartening to see so much pollution in Beas river that Is crystal clear when you do this trek. We are harming our nature in all ways possible. THIS MUST STOP ✋
before we ruin for my future generations.
I know we can’t change it at once but we can always try to do our bit. Say No to plastic when travelling to mountains..
That’s my resolution for this year!! Follow @_trave_lo_ for more travel and food posts.
