After a lot of introspection on which trek to go on from Delhi in just 3 days, I was left with few options to be chosen. To make this one my most memorable experience Kheerganga was the one which I chose to explore.
Kheerganga is located in Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of approximately 3000m. It starts from a small village called Barshaini.
From Barshaini – the base to Rudra Nag, Kalga and Pulga, opt from two routes:
Rudra Nag (13 km): It’s a steep climb, laced with stunning views; perfect for photography enthusiasts and easier to descend.
Kalga (17 km): Easy climb with longer descends, suited for occasional trekkers and those low on stamina. Not a good option for photographers looking for beautiful landscape.
I took Rudra Nag route while ascent and kalga route while coming back.
One can reach Barshaini via Kasol( also famous by the name Israel of Himachal) and Manikaran (Famous sikh Pilgrimage) by de-boarding any bus going to Manali from Delhi at a small town called Bhuntar.
So I took HPTDC volvo at 6PM from Delhi and reached Bhunter around 6 AM next day. From Bhunter one can easily reach Kasol by frequent local buses or shared cabs which will charge you around Rs200/ person.
