We were originally going to trek around the River Beas but went up to the Markha Valley in Ladakh to avoid monsoon rains. Our six day trek was organized by Tenzin Sopa from Himalayan Spirit based in Manali. His brother-in-law works out of Ladakh so he is capable of making arrangements in both places. The trek was terrific in all ways - guide, cook, equipment, itinerary. Tenzin was very thorough and thoughtful in all preparations from being sure that the food would suit our family's palate to providing prayer flags for our high pass summit. Himalayan Spirit is highly recommended for making trek and travel arrangements.

Contimous flow. refereshes your mind.
Ice cold water. Be careful not to venture into the water as it has great force

This is one furious river. In river rafting language this would be more than a class 4 and river rafting is going to be next to impossible here.

The river carries a lot of mud, so not recommended for a dip.

Undoubtedly it is the major attraction of Manali and Kullu region. Beas covers a long distance and while starting from Rohtang and seen pretty majestic in the beginning... while being quiet when it passes through Amritsar. I truly admire the beauty of this river. We could not enjoy so much options around it as we visited during end of Summers and water flow was pretty dangerous. Resorts/ restaurants on the bank of river which are at safe height and offers nice food is a good option to spend time.

Never recommended to step inside the river as it is risky due to cold water and sharp stones in the bank.

Check out rafting options carefully when you try... Winters or starting of summers is Ok option for rafting. At some points you see Hot Air baloons as well.

The river flows down through the terrain with great velocity and offers a great view from the valley
