After going through many orange fields and banana plantations on the mountains, one reaches Arunachal. If you ever want to disconnect from the world and regain your inner peace, this is the place. A few kilometres into Arunachal ,one reaches Parshuram Kund.
Parshuram Kund has many mythologies associated with it. It is located on the Lohit river on the Brahmaputra plateau. There are many beleifs related to this river. It is beleived that taking a dip in this river cleanses away your sins. Many people visit it during Makar Sakranti. People all the way from Nepal also visit the place in huge numbers .One of the most known legend is that Lord Parashurama came to this place to this place to wash away his sins after killing his mother on the order of his father. Lord Parashurama killed his mother with an axe which got stuck to his hand The axe got stuck to his hand as he had committed a horendous crime. He came to this river to wash away his sin. As soon as he put his hand in water, the axe detached from his hand.
Since then ,the place has become a significant place for Hindu pilgrimage. To reach the kund you have to climb around 320 steps as no vehicles are allowed there. The whole trail to the Kund is like going through a jungle with mini waterfalls within. The cool breeze from the water is something to look forward to. The trail is much more beautiful than the mini treks done before. You can look at the photos itself and take a guess for yourself
