Kasol to Kheerganga Trek

Kasol to Kheerganga Trek

About


Kasol is a quaint little village in Himachal situated along the banks of the river Parvati. Colloquially known as the 'Amsterdam of India', Kasol is a tourist attraction that is rapidly gaining fame as a popular hub for trekkers, backpackers, and nature lovers.

Kasol is situated 23 km from Bhuntar and next to the religious town of Manikaran and is one of the best places in the country just to sit back and chill in the panorama of snow-clad mountains, pine trees, and gurgling river.

Kasol is inhabited by a huge number of people from Israel, which is discernible from the plenteously available Israeli food, and the street signpost inscribed in Hebrew. Kasol has quite a few streetside cafes which serve delicious food, and the experience of sitting and enjoying a meal amidst the dark green forests and the awe-inspiring mountains make the meals even more enjoyable.

Kasol is famous for its trekking trails, which include a trek to Kheerganga. Kheerganga (3050 m) lies at the extreme end of Parvati valley and the last inhabited village while trekking to pin valley via Pin-Parvati pass. Kheerganga's panoramic skies and vast greenery are a much-needed delight to the trekker's eyes and especially the tired legs. It is a holy place with a hot water spring, a small temple of Lord Shiva, and a bathing tank. It makes a rare combination for any trekker to bathe in the hot spring water when everything is covered by snow.

A stay in the mountains is a memorable one indeed!
