Fitness Required for Beas Kund Trek
At high altitude as the air gets thinner oxygen becomes less abundant.The percentage saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen determines the content of oxygen in our blood. After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the level of oxygen in our hemoglobin begins to plummet. However, the human body has both short-term and long-term adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen.

    Beas Kund Trek a short but Beas Kund height above 4000 meters makes it a moderate & short trek near Manali Trek. Beas Kund Temperature remain in the range of 20 degree to 2 degrees Celsius.
