Legends say he was here for a thousand years, Shiva and Parvathy occasionally came to see him and she used to make Khir for them (rice pudding) and hence the greyish colour of the Parvathy River is because of this fact....

kheerganga parvati valley -tosh village, Sosan, Himachal Pradesh 175134, India
There are two ways to reach the top. Either you take Barsheni-Rudranaga route or Kalga route. If you are looking for more of the wild scenery then you gotta choose Kalga. Also, Kalga route is 2kms shorter the former one. It started with a walk in to the forest to climbing rocks and it got a little tougher after 6 kms. There is a waterfall cafe halfway to kheerganga(6kms) and i will advice you not to miss vegetable maggi, its extremely windy and cold because of the waterfall and you will enjoy your maggi well.

About Khir Ganga

Another 30 minutes of trekking through beautiful landscapes and we finally reached Kheerganga. We were a little slow and stopped at quite a lot of places to cover the distance and hence we reached Kheerganga around 4 PM. We were there just in time to see the setting sun and catch it's last rays. The hot water spring is open only from sunrise till sunset so we decided to go for it the next day in morning. After this we pitched our tents and set up our stuff for the night to follow. In the hurry of finding a place for pitching the tents we forgot to notice the beautiful landscapes all around us. Once we were set up, we just sat in our tent facing the mountain in front and enjoying the views of nature. On the mountain in the front, if one looks carefully you can easily spot about 10 waterfalls coming from the snow clad peak. the vastness of this mountain covering the Kheerganga valley is a sight to relish.
