About Khir Ganga
Situated in the Parvathi Valley, this is a famous trekking point with the beautiful hot springs and mesmerizing grrenery. You have to drive till an extent and then start your trek. This is also the place where the elder son of Lord Shiva, Karthik Ji laid in Samadhi for around a 1000 years. The Kheer Ganga waterfall is a sight to behold and nothing less. The waters of this fall are said to have therapeutic values. To trek here you need a good pair of shoes and a bagpack with water, light food, torch, medicines, camera and some other things as well. There are good options for accomodation too after you climb up to the top.

Kheerganga - Sunshine Himalayan Camp
What started of as small talk, the next morning, formed into a bond that none of us three could really understand. I was convinced enough to change my path and travel to Kheerganga with them instead of Old Manali. What awaited was a dangerous rainy trek. After crossing almost impossible patches of a landslide, walking through nerve freezing water, falling down gazillion times(that was just me), an ankle sprain, breathtaking views, and not to forget the 14 kilometre tiring trek, we only hoped to reach the peak before sunset. Meanwhile, P: Yaar, Tu English mein achi hai? Me: Hai? Kyu? P: Tu na iss trip ke baad ek blog likhio. When a person with a more than decent experience in trekking, tells you that, you just know this one trek is different. Well, my plans weren't any different. That one night of pure bliss, the hot water spring, Israeli food, old monk, and two people who made the trip what it was. कभी कभी साथ रहने से बेहतर है, की अलग रहकर उस कुछ वक़्त को अपने पास क़ैद रखा जाए. And we parted ways the following day. Without exchanging numbers, email addresses or Facebook IDs. With that, I left a part of myself at that place, with those people. They made me realise that happiness is not that hard to find as we think it is. Thank you, for introducing to me a new kind of human affection.This post was originally published on Live.
Kheer Ganga Hot Water Spring
A little trekking through the dense forests of the Kullu District will lead you to the amazing Kheerganga hot springs. The temperature of the springs here is lower than at Manikaran, but this is exactly what makes it worthy of a natural Jacuzzi. Just what you need after a long trek, it’s a natural spa. It attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world. Maybe it will attract you too..
