Kasol is around 30km from Bhuntar, so we boarded a local bus and reached Kasol in another two hours....

Parvati Valley, Kasol, Kullu
After a 14 km trek from Tosh, part of it being a walk in the park and part of it making me realise that getting my rucksack along for the trek was huge mistake. Kheerganga has panoramic skies and vast greenery, which is a much needed delight to the eyes and especially the tired legs. It's not just the destination though, en route to Kheerganga you will cross many waterfalls and bridges that might be your last step ever, the tremendous river flow and its thunderous sound do instil some fear into your heart about how strong mother nature really is. Once you get to the top though, there is nothing that feels better than a hot spring bath after walking 14 km, trust me, nothing. Take in everything that Kheerganga has to offer!Getting There:The Kheerganga trek starts from Barshaini and Tosh. You first need to get to Bhunter and then from the to Tosh Getting to Bhunter:From Delhi getting to Bhunter takes 14 hours approx. Start from the ISBT Kashmere Gate, you can reach the ISBT via metro, auto, bus or taxi from pretty much anywhere in Delhi.Getting to Tosh :From Bhuntar it is a 4 hour bumpy bus ride that shouldn't cost more that 100+ Rs or a Taxi that should take 1000 to 1200 Rs. Now when you take the bus it will only take you up to Barshaini (Bar-che-ni) from where you will have 2 options, take a cab that will cost 200 Rs or walk for around an hour across the hills to get to Tosh. Walk, trust me, walk. There is no better way to explore the Kheerganga trek. The trek:The kheerganga trek is 14-15 km long and is an easy walk in the park for the first 7 km but after you cross the first dhaba the Kheerganga trek can become a little more demanding especially if you are carrying a bag or if it rains, which in my case was both.One can finish the Kheerganga trek in 5-6 hours and there in no need for a porter or a guide on this trek. There's so many places on the way you'd want to just 'chill' for a while though and it might just take you a little more time if you stop at each one of those.Staying There:Kheerganga has plenty of places to stay and accommodation is rarely a problem.The rates may vary from 500 Rs a night to a mere 100 Rs a night at the 'Ashram' built on top.You can chose from brick or wooden houses to tents depending upon how much time you want to spend inside a room in beautiful valley and how comfortable you want to sleep at night.One can even carry there own tents and set them where ever they wish to which would save a lot on accommodation expenses, only if you're there for more than a week though.Food:As it is in most of Himachal, there's many foreign tourist in Kheerganga and one can find a variety of cuisines over there.Moderate price and alright taste would give the cafe's of Kheerganga 3 out of 5 stars.The one thing you'd love to do there is just sit and sip hot drinks, tea, coffee and other things people prefer consuming hot are the biggest sellers at all the cafes.Places to visit around:Many people travel to Kheerganga as it has a temple of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and the hot water spring there is considered to have medicinal properties. The night sky that gives you a panoramic view of the outer milky way a treat you must not miss.

Kasol, Himachal Pradesh 175105, India
Trail from Kasol. 20-30 Minute walk. Climb down to the river for the Hot spring right after crossing the bridge from Kasol. 11th October: Getting around Kasol Next morning we woke up at 7 and with packaged food and some fruits in our bags decided to take the trails around Kasol. The first one led us from back of the German Bakery (oh, the truffles!), by the stream that flows through Kasol and into an open field. This is where the much talked about Trance festivals happen, though when we walked past through it was completely clear with hardly one or two people strolling down the little field, as we moved further in, the greens got greener as the it started to drizzle, completely unprepared we put our caps on and kept walking down the trail the banks of the stream, lush with mosses and algae. After taking a quick dip (and almost freezing) we moved further in, finding it hard to take in so much of nature all at once, we halted further upstream and stared at the mountains (typical, we know.) as we kept moving further away from the village, the variety and colors of birds went on increasing. Unfortunately, lacking a telephoto and the know-how of bord watching, we merely awed at their beauty and after around 11:00 decided to turn back and after lunch at Kasol took the trail towards the Chhalal. Meeting a Sadhu by a hot water spring on our way to Chhalal we decided to accompany him into his cave which was surprisingly warm (courtesy: hot water spring). We reached Chhalal around 20-30minutes later and walked down to Kasol through the main road after pit-stopping for Chai. We stayed up late into the night following Dinner and Bon Fire by the River at the hotel.
