Temp was -7°, but we were riding continues. Finally we reached our hotel.
Good Morning at Kheerganga with the most famous and sacred place over here the Holy 'Parvati Kund' or in other words Natural Hot Water Spring. Interesting fact about it is the Water is hot naturally but then some white sediments come out along with the water, which led to turn the place to be called as KHEER GANGA. After breakfast we trekked down and back to Kalga. But after a patch of 3 kms I went alone through the long way of Nagthan instead of going with my cousins. It was a long and tiring stretch but it was bliss and I got to know my limits and pushed myself hard to keep walking through those mountains for 15 kms under direct sunlight. It's all in your brain guys. Stay hydrated throughout the trek and always have GINGER LEMON HONEY TEA in the morning to give it a kickstart.
So the day came! Kheerganga on mind! Motivated, Relaxed, Chilled and full on excited. As they say- "How's the Josh? High Sir" Kheerganga is 12 kms from Kalga Village, the trek is challenging and people take around 5 hours to trek up to Kheerganga. We TRIPPLIN did it in 3 hours and 40 minutes. First 2 hours we trekked 8 kms but the last 4 kms patch was deadly and exhausting. It was slippery from Kalga. People can trek from Barshaini to Kheerganga via Nagthan Village, which will be 15kms of trek. I came back this way though!
KHEERGANGAKheerganga lies at the extreme end of Parvati valley and the last inhibited village while trekking to pin valley via Pin-Parvati pass. Kheerganga's panoramic skies and greenery are a much-needed delight to a trekker's eyes and especially the tired legs. It is a holy place with a small temple of Lord Shiva, the place tells you the story of Lord Shiva meditating on these hills and incidents related to him. We took a cab from tosh village nala to kheerganga trekking point , the DAM. this route is a little difficult as we were supposed to trek through the forest. Complete journey is accompanied by the Parvati river.
Some tented accommodation may also be available on the green meadows that is a short distance away from the other cafés. It is also possible to pitch your own tent by paying a small fee in Kheerganga. A few companies offer weekend trek packages to Kheerganga – with prices from Delhi, which may be a good idea for group travellers. Their common eating space is nice, and with an evening bonfire a packaged deal for Kheerganga may not be a bad idea.Basic idea of the costs for trek to Kheerganga : Volvo tickets from Delhi to Bhuntar & back – 2200/-. Bhuntar to Barshaini (to & fro) – 200/-. Stay at Kheerganga (or other villages) – 500 per day. Food is expensive – Rs. 800 per day.So for a 2-3 day trip, the expenses can worked to be roughly around 4500-55000 Rupees.
