Day 1

It was the first day of the year. As i always wanted to visit kheerganga as this is my second home . When i was 17 kheerganga and Malana was the first 2 treks i had done solo . So moving on my trip . I took an Hrtc bus from delhi ISBT that cost me around 790 as i had booked it prior.it takes 10 hours to reach Bhuntar.

Day 2

I reached bhuntar around 8 Am and i took a shared taxi to kasol that took me around 200 per person. You need to wait for the fellow passengers to go towards kasol if you wanted a shared can otherwise a taxi cost you 1250.from bhuntar to kasol is about n hour . As a solo traveler you need to make sure you spend less money with more places. So i normally take share taxi or hitch hike sometimes when in higher altitude in himalayas. I reached kasol and took a walk towards tosh and as i had carried my own tent so i had to find a place to pitch. So i went a last till village and asked a owner to pitch a tent in their premises . They took 100 rs a day and 50 rs if you need a blanket.

Day 3

The day has arrived where i had to take a walk towards kheerganga. I woke up around 6 am and started packing up. Basically i do not wakeup till its 10 but when in himalayas i barely able to sleep because everytime i visit himalayas i see diffrent things and get diffrent vibes. It's not always a same feeling!

I walked from tosh to chalal ,then to kasol. Waited for the bus to arrive while i was waiting i took some snacks with me . Bus from kasol to barshaini takes 36 rs . And it takes around 25 - 35mins to reach  barshaini. As from barshaini to kheerganga trek it takes 7 hours for a walk so i suggest travellers to visit early morning if you guys wanna visit kheerganga .

I did not able to take a picture in nakthan as i halted there for a charge to my phone and potable too. You can get many food points on the way to kheerganga.

I started my trek around 12 noon as i was wandering nearby places before going to kheerhanga.i reached kheerganga at evening 9 as this was a snow season and barely travellers visit kheerganga at the month of january . I found the place but as i could not able to take out my tent because i was freezing and was dam tired as i had to cross snow mountains and had to walk without lights . I was just trekking up with my mobile light . While walking up at moment i saw a way where trees were falling down and road got blocked ,i had to go in the same way crossing those trees. There was just a fellow dog with me who was foloowing me and sometimes when i forget the way in the dark he takes me to the right path.

Well taking about the trek you should rember that kheerganga trek is an easy trek but sometimes in snow it gets difficult to walk in the fresh snow .

Also tent cost around 800 for a tent . Travellers fellow can share but i was solo and prefer to stay alone so i took the whole tent for a day and cooked my own food .

I asked a picture for me because i wanted my moments to be captured with the rock heart???? . Oh theses dreadlocks i have done in overnight as i wished to do it in winters.

Day 4

The next day early morning as i woke up i saw a really wonderful snow mountain in front of me . My tent was placed in a spectacular place where i did not thought at night that when i will be waking up i could see such a mesmerising mountain .
I also visited the parvati kund for sin wash.
I can never forget the moment when i take a dip to the holy water . It is the most herbal water as it said that ot takes all the bad vibes and medically its good to take a dip to the water. It was around -15 in the aftrnoon and when i took a dip i felt like its warm inside.

As it was going to be eveining so i decide to pack my bags and get back to kasol. I packedup everything and started my trek at 4 pm and i reached barshaini at 9.30 night as this trek will be the most memorable trekking ever because i solo has trekked at night and seriously love it .. its just safe .. This mountain took a care of me as a women we all feel unsafe but trekking up in himalayas is always safe for women solo traveller..
