  • Kheer Ganga Trek is well-known for its hot springs and picturesque vistas of the Himalayan highlands. It is located in the Himachal Pradesh region of Kullu. Trekking through the deep woodlands and bathing in its hot springs are relaxing experiences located around 22 kilometers from the pilgrimage destination of Manikaran. During your stay at the Kheer Ganga trek, you can go trekking, camping in the jungle, and take nature photographs. The sunset view and trekking through the Kheer Ganga trees are both great experiences. The final remarkable point is Barshaini. It is best to hire a guide to get to Kheerganga. Walking from Barshaini to Kheer Ganga takes 4 hours.
  • While trekking from Barshaini, you will pass through the settlement and various tourist opportunities, including the serpent-shaped waterfall Rudra-Nag. The trail becomes steep after Rudra Nag crosses the Parvati River bridge. The path includes a mix of steep and moderate terrain. Then we arrive at the Kheer Ganga slope, from which the food tents and temple may be seen. This temple is devoted to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and features a hot spring with healing effects. One might take a soak in this hot spring to relieve fatigue from the walk. The greatest time to visit Kheer Ganga is between the months of May and November when the weather is mild and pleasant.
  • The hike is avoided during the winter months since the snow makes the trail difficult to walk on and the rocks slippery. A few restaurants along the road near Kheer Ganga serve vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian, Chinese, and Continental cuisine. There is an ashram near the Shiva temple that provides basic lodging and other facilities. According to mythology, Kartikeya, Lord Shiva's younger son, pondered for a thousand years in Kheerganga, making it a particularly important devotional site for Hindus.

Preparation for Kheer Ganga Trek

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.

So here are some aspects regarding Hampta Pass Trek preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program. Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.

Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho, flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).
