Nestled in the Parvati Valley of Himachal Pradesh, India, this trek offers a unique experience, allowing you to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life and immerse yourself in the serene embrace of the mountains.

**Beginning the Adventure:**

To embark on the Kheerganga Trek is to embark on a voyage of discovery. The journey commences at the quaint village of Barshaini, a starting point for various treks in the region. The trail gradually unfolds, winding through dense forests, rustic villages, and picturesque meadows. As you set foot on the trail, a sense of excitement and anticipation takes over, propelling you into the heart of this natural wonderland.

**Transition of Kheerganga trek:**

Transitioning into the heart of the trek, the path meanders through dense pine forests, the scent of pine needles infusing the air with a refreshing aroma. The rustling leaves and chirping birds provide a soothing symphony that resonates with the rhythm of the mountains.

**A Cultural Sojourn:**

One of the unique aspects of the Kheerganga Trek is its opportunity to interact with the local culture. Along the way, you’ll encounter the indigenous people of the region. Engaging in conversations with them, you’ll gain insights into their traditions, stories, and daily routines. The seamless blend of cultural exploration with physical exertion adds a layer of depth to the trek, making it an experience that nourishes both the body and the soul.

Transitioning from the realm of human connections to the ethereal beauty of nature, the trail opens up to reveal a series of enchanting waterfalls. These cascades, like nature’s own artwork, create a tranquil atmosphere that rejuvenates weary trekkers.

**The Spiritual Oasis:**

As the journey progresses, the landscape undergoes a transformation, leading you to the spiritual haven of Kheerganga. Nestled amidst towering peaks, this serene meadow is home to the revered hot springs that lend the place its name. Legend has it that Lord Shiva meditated here for thousands of years, sanctifying the land with his presence. Taking a dip in the natural hot springs is not only a therapeutic experience for your tired muscles but also a moment to connect with the spiritual energy that permeates the surroundings.

**Transition of the trek:**
Transitioning from the physical relaxation of the hot springs to the contemplative aspect of the trek. The sight of snow-capped peaks against the backdrop of a clear blue sky is a sight that etches itself into your memory.

Setting up your tent amidst the tranquility of the meadow is an experience that reconnects you with the primal rhythms of nature. The crackling of the campfire, the hushed conversations, and the twinkling stars above create an atmosphere of camaraderie and wonder. Transitioning from the camaraderie of the campsite to the final leg of the trek, the descent back to Barshaini offers a chance to reflect on the journey. The memories created, the challenges overcome, and the beauty witnessed all culminate in a sense of accomplishment and fulfilment.

Kasol – Chalal – Kasol Campsite

Misty morning, tall trees, untouched hills and a breath of fresh air – this exactly what Kasol is! Upon reaching Kasol and a bit of walking, reach your campsite. Enjoy the greener and a happier space by the riverside. Take some rest. Once you are up and ready, it will be time to explore the ‘Little Amsterdam’ while making our way to Chalal. While a walk through the lanes of Kasol, you will notice many Israeli cafes and shops to buy your souvenirs from. Gradually, we will walk towards, what is known as
Trance and Psychedelic party village- Chalaal. This little village is tucked in the conifer dense forest. The walk doesn’t take more than 2 hours hyphenated with breaks.
One can sit at the end of the village admiring the beauty of fiercely flowing Parvati river. Later in the evening, we will come back to the camping site; dance the night away around a bonfire while having taste-buds teasing dinner


Leave for Kheergnaga after Brekfast(Trasnportation is not incuded form Kasol- Barsheni).Walking through rivers, waterfalls, holding on to dear life on narrow walkways, apple orchards – you name it. If you’re a regular hiker then this one is a dream to do. One of the most beautiful treks, so picturesque that you feel an impulse to reach for your camera or pinch yourself hard to make sure it’s real. The amazing landscapes, waterfalls and the alpine meadows are bound to make you stop and feel it and soak it in! Trek from Tosh to Kheer Ganga is 15km. The first cafe comes after 7 Km which will indicate half battle won! Literally. Then comes Rudra Naag cafe in another 3 to 5 km. If you’re calling it quits at this point then we’d highly recommend that you carry on the climb – heaven awaits you at the end of it. All your tiredness will be washed away with a sight of the mystical hot springs of Kheerganga. 10 minutes into the pool and you’ll be tripping because of the sulphur fumes.
Later, we will gather around the bonfire, have our tummies full and spend the night under a beautiful blanket of stars.


It seems like a spectrum painted on the canvas. Spend some time doing nothing atall.
There’s joy in doing nothing at all. Just laze around in the grass under towering pine trees with the sun filtering through the foliage.While coming back be prepared to leave a part of yourself behind. Once you reach Barshaini, you will be driven to Kasol. And then it’s time to bid adieu.

Kheerganga: Swargwasnu!
Kheerganga saade roz da daud-dhup toh vakhra chhidkaav si. Parvati nad di sair naal mera mann vich shanti aa gayi. Garam pani di jhilmil ne taan saanu navi zindagi di raah dikhayi. Sitaron wale aasmaan de neeche camp karke taan akhan cho pani aa gaya. Yaar beliyan naal hoya saanu apne Punjabi jazbaat da ehsaas.

Oye hoye! Kheerganga da trek te maza aa gaya! Panjabi gabruan layi eh ek anokhi yaatra ae. Rasta de vich hirniya da jhund, snow-capped pahaadan te saheliyaan diyan batein ne dil nu khush kar ditta. Chota saffar baad chon hot springs vich dubki laayi, taan maan aa gaya. Local khana taan vi kamaal di swaad laayi. Kheerganga aake taan pata laga ke sachmuch “Pahaadan Di Shaan” ae!
