Description

The trek is one of the most well-known destinations for trekking and is located at a height of 2950m. Deep in the Parvati Valley, it’s considered as nature’s paradise as the beauty is almost spellbinding.

The Itinerary for the Kasol and Kheerganga Trek starts with a drive from Delhi to Kasol. 

Then, the trek starts at Kasol, a small village in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu district. This spot is emerging as a popular tourist location best for budget traveling. 

You’ll get to enjoy one night spent at Kasol before you move on to Kheerganga.

All you need are two days to explore the landscape and all the picturesque places. The trek reveals stunning terrains and provides an invigorating journey.

You’ll also get a chance to learn about the culture of Kasol and Kheerganga while staying there. And don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to click pictures with snow-capped peaks behind you.

The history of Kheerganga has dated thousands of years back and is considered as the abode of Lord Shiva. 

The best time to visit Kasol and Kheerganga is from September to June as the weather is pleasant and you can fully experience everything. But, it’ll also depend on your preference as a traveler or as a trekker.

If you prefer a warmer climate and want to witness the spring, March to June are the best months to visit. If you want colder weather in Kasol and Kheerganga and wish to trek in snow, November till Jan-Feb would be best.

Hot water spring and a splendid view are guaranteed here. These become much more attractive destinations during the winter and have added to the tourism of Kasol and Kheerganga.

The trek is a beginner level trek as there is a gentle incline and it only gets steep for short parts. In fact, you can take a dip in the water as there are beautiful waterfalls on the way to the trek route.

Just a bit after Rudranag waterfall, trekkers get to witness a dense pine forest that has a good stretch of a flat, plain area. This old-world feel can be utilized to the maximum as a picnic spot mid-trek.

Additionally, the Rudranag temple is also very popular amongst many pilgrims. This is also located along the way to Kheerganga.

The total distance covered is 25km making it ideal for novice trekkers.

There are plenty of things to do in Kheerganga. While you’re on the trek, there are plenty of lovely villages that will offer the option of a homestay.

The most important options are Barshaini and Tosh. Don’t miss out on these cheap options that’ll allow you to experience the amazing hospitality of the people there!

Another famous place to visit in Kasol and Kheerganga is Naktan. This is the most ideal pit stop and one of the most colorful villages throughout the trail.

An interesting fact about Kasol and Kheerganga is that Kasol is the last stop for an ATM.

People can relax in Naktan for one to two hours easily and then continue the trek. And the second, most important reason in our opinion, is the delicious duo of watermelon juice and noodles.

The reasons you need to check the Kasol and Kheerganga Trek in 2020 are far more than many. But, if you still have doubts then let us clear them up while you are on the Kasol and Kheerganga Trek with JustWravel.
