Day 2 : Barshaini : Barshaini is a small town with a few staying options, and has basic dhabas, a taxi stand and a wine shop. The road passes through the Sikh and Hindu pilgrimage town of Manikaran and terminates at Pulga, where the construction of the Parbadti Hydro Project, a hydroelectric dam, dominates the landscape. If you have to buy any supplies, it is recommended that you buy them from here. A small road from here diverges to go to Tosh village, which is around 3 kms from Barshaini.
Someone has told me the bus arrive at 05:00am in the morning at kasol but that isn't true, i got the bus at 7:30am in the morning, one of the best thing about backpacking is no one will judge you, where you came from, where you will go, just be in the present moment & feel alive, local bus fare is only 40rs it drop me at Barshani after 90min ride, i purchase the items i need because on the way things will going higher and higher water bottle of 20rs you will get at 50rs, buy things you need before start trek, i had a rucksack 20L small bag with me, so it won't hurt me while trekking.
Kheerganga has become so popular that these days a small supermarket store has opened there; it has a reasonable collection of essential products and packaged eatables that may be required. It is advised to carry a power bank to recharge your electronic devices. ATM services in Parvati Valley can sometimes not work, so it is best to carry the required cash or withdraw from Bhuntar/Kasol. Try to carry as less weight with you in the backpack as possible, and leave the excess stuff either at Barshaini/Tosh/Kalga or the homestay you are staying at.
