Beas Kund, known as the origin of the Beas river, is a prominent tourist site in Manali. The place is considered sacred by people belonging to the Hindu religion. They believe that the Beas Kund was used by Rishi Vyas as a bathing place. According to locals, taking a dip in this sacred lake cures all kinds of skin ailments. The Beas Kund is sheltered by an igloo-like stone formation. This formation acts as the base for treks to the Friendship Peak, Shitidhar Peak, Hanuman Tibba Peak and Ladakhi Peak.
