So on 21st July, Sunday, I woke up at around 6:30 Am, freshened up and checked out from the hotel room. The shops in the early morning were closed but luckily I found a cafe and I had tea over there and it was a fresh hot ginger tea from the hills. And in the cafe, I met Udai, a 3 year old kid who was really cute but unfortunately he refused to get a photo clicked.
My next stop was Barshaini, so I took a bus at around 8:00 am from Manikaran to Barshaini and reached Barshaini at around 9:00 am. I found a Cafe named Rock view Cafe where I put my Bag and ordered An Egg parantha with Ginger Honey Lemon Tea. Nice Food, I must say.
So I left the cafe for the Parvati dam near Kalga from where the 9-10 km trek to kheerganga starts.
I was alone and a bit confused whether I should start the trek or not but to my good fortune I started. These are good steep mountains with lush green vicinity and Parvati river flowing by side.
I walked up for around a Km and besides me there were 5 guys all the way from UK (Uttrakhand). I talked to them and started trekking along with them. I was Solo and now were a team of six. We walked slowly and steadily along the hills, trees, greenery, waterfalls and beautiful nature.
We took a hault at some places to click pictures and make videos. But we kept moving since our destination was at the top Kheerganga.
So at around 1:30 pm on 21st July we reached KheerGanga and I could feel that I was at the top of the world, such a beauty this place is.
We took a bath in the hot water springs of kheerganga in shiva temple, and all the pain went gone. And finally we got the darshan in the shiva temple, har har mahadev.
It was evening now, we moved to the camps where we could listen to the music of the nature. There was calm music and Bonefire in the night following a good sleep in the tents under the Sky.
