The Nehru Kund is a spring that was named after the first Prime Minister of India, the Late Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru. The quietude of this environment will thrill any humans.
 The Late Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru simply loved this spot. He would drink the water of this stream whenever he visited Manali. It was the clean sparkling water that enticed the Late Punditji.

The refined clean water of the Nehru Kund actually has its starting point at the Bhrigu Lake.  The sound of bubbles made by the water of the spring is serene music played in the placid quietness of this spot.
