Kheer Ganga is not just a trek in the Himalayas, it is more of a spiritual journey!
Don’t believe us? Have a look at the photographs.
The place remains open for about 7 months in a year and is not permanently inhabited. The Great Pin-Parbati trek actually starts from Kheer Ganga on the Kullu side.
The starting point of the trek is another 19 kilometers from Manikaran, the first hot water spring enroute Kheer Ganga. A place called Barshaini. This is where the trail starts as you walk past the machinery and walk into the sparse jungle up into the forests of the beautiful Parbati Valley.
[…] Kheer Ganga is one of the most refreshing treks that you can go on anywhere. The hot spring experience is something that you will remember for a lifetime and beyond. Most people who reach this place always come back for seconds as there you can simply not get enough of such a place. The place is open for about 7 months in a year and is not permanently inhabited. There are two small villages that offer a resting place for travelers and even food and many other unexpected supplies. The first village is at around a couple of hours walk and offers the trekkers a place where you get delicious food cheaper than it is in nearby places. Believe it or not here in Kalga, there’s even a pool table thrown out in the open where you’ll find local kids from the village kill time. Remember that we left the road at Barshaini and all goods here are brought by either people or mules. […]
I would like to join the next batch if planning.
Can I get more details ?
It’s almost winters and the place might get covered in snow anytime soon. You may go there after Feb next year. There might be some snow on the road in Feb (depending upon how much it snows in January or Feb), but generally, there are enough people at the place. So it’s safe and comfortable.
Trek to Kheerganga is really great and I wish to be there again. For now I would like to share my experience of the trek to kheerganga along with some great views which we witnessed with you all. http://www.indianjaunt.com/trek-to-kheerganga-and-a-trip-to-kasol-mini-israel/
