Kheerganga - Sunshine Himalayan Camp
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.
