Kheerganga Trek– Kheerganga is one of the most refreshing treks near manali. It lies in the beautiful Parvati valley. The natural hot water spring experience is something that you will remember for a lifetime. The trek is very pleasant and offers some exhilarating views. You will visit plenty of villages, and there will be enough opportunities for you to click pictures of the snow-capped peaks in the background.

Kheerganga’s vast greenery, panoramic skies, and the hot water spring is a much-needed delight to the eyes and especially the tired legs. It’s not just the destination though, en route Kheerganga you will cross many waterfalls, the tremendous river flow and its thunderous sound do instill some fear into one’s heart about how strong Mother Nature really is. The vegetation changes dramatically and opens up into a flat land that is graced by the occasional tents, few guest houses and cafes and the temple premises which also comprises of the hot water spring. After the climb, you are rewarded with release from all your pains during the day and get to bathe in the hot spring and rejuvenate yourself. Visiting the temple at early dawn before you proceed to the pool is customary. The biting cold is forgotten once your body is in that sulfur heated water. The night sky that gives you a panoramic view of the outer Milky Way is a treat you must not miss. Trekatribe’s Kheerganga trek cost is reasonable for travelers. It is one of the most beautiful treks near Manali in Parvati Valley.

    One of the most memorable experience of my life was the decision to vanish to parvati valley in district kullu and trek towards kheerganga .i can never forget the mental and physical relief i experienced in the hot water away from crowd and into the mother natures lap.if you want to take a break from the stressful life,kheerganga is a must go. Shoutout to Mr. Vaibhav Thakur (trek leader)for convincing me to join him in this trek,i must admit it i was speechless and am indebted to him for experience he provided to our batch.
    thank you again Mr.Vaibhav thakur
