Kheerganga trek, an ideal trek for novices, was my very first trek. And keeping in mind that it was a simple trek, there is a great deal that I had close to zero familiarity with before beginning the trek. Subsequently, I confronted a ton of issues however eventually, our objective was worth the effort.
We arranged our Kheerganga trek from Delhi and battled a ton while coming to because there weren’t many articles on Kheerganga 4 years back. Fortunately for you, assuming you are mulling over the off chance that you ought to go on this trek or not, this guide will assist you with arranging the trek.
In this aide, I have noted down all the data on this trek including the distance, temperature, convenience choices, etc.
Arranged at an elevation of roughly 3050m, Kheerganga is a little town settled amid the Parvati Valley.
As per the nearby legends, Lord Shiva lived here for close to 10,000 years, making it a significant site.
Likewise, Kasol Kheerganga was given the name in light of the smooth white Parvati waterway that streams close to the valley. You will find an old sanctuary devoted here to Lord Shiva as this spot is supposed to be the habitation of Lord Shiva and is viewed as a profound site.
One of the top treks in Himachal, aside from the Prashar Lake Trek, Kheerganga is especially well known for its natural aquifers. Indeed, truth be told! You will track down natural aquifers here toward the finishing of this trek (something an unquestionable requirement to loosen up those hurting muscles and joints).
The normal water from these underground aquifers is smooth white and a shower in it is viewed as reflective and consecrated.
There are isolated pools for ladies thus, you don’t need to stress over your security too while taking a plunge in it.
Many individuals even trek to kheerganga in December to partake in the snow-shrouded trails and the snow-covered mountain sees. Be that as it may, on the off chance that it is your most memorable trek, abstain from trekking in December or join a trekking bunch as it isn’t fitting to go on a snow trek alone.
What and Where to Eat on the Trek

On the Trek
You will find a few bistros and food slows down on the trek to Kheerganga’s highest point on each trekking course. You can get Maggi, Parathas, Fruits, Packaged Foods, and so on if these foods slow down. In any case, if it is a long end of the week, a large portion of this food slows down promptly in the day. In this way, it would be better to assume you buy snacks from the actual base and convey it to you.
You don’t need to stress over buying water bottles as there are a few clean waterway streams and cascades on the way. Simply convey a refillable water bottle with a carbon channel and you are good to go for the trek.
