A peaceful trip to Kheerganga
Walking to the magical Parvati valley still seems like a dream. You will fall in love with this majestic valley, goats, lush green mountains, and tranquil oak forests.
My journey to Kheerganga started when I took my little sister and a taxi from Paharganj in Delhi to Kasol. After 12 hours of arduous travel and 550 kilometers, we finally reached the Castle. But we prefer to move to the nearby town of Tosh, which is one of the favorite destinations for young people.
At the restaurant in Sasi, we ate Aaloo parathas and then moved on. We passed through the countryside and reached the beautiful town of Tosh, but we had no way.
We want to rest as much as possible on the first day. At the nearby Amsterdam cafe, you can enjoy the local bazaar, local food, and coffee in the evening. We played badminton with local girls, gave girls chocolates, and clicked on various photos. Finally, after a day of hard work and shaking in Tosh’s smoke, the villagers sat together.
The exciting Kheerganga trek, surrounded by dense greenery, began the next day in Barshaini. The Parvati River and the Tosh River converge. They are also a meeting point. Finally, we arrived at base camp. At Prem Cafe, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. From there, we walk through the beautiful scenery and enjoy the incredible natural view. We passed several wooden bridges, small waterfalls, and villages.
On our DSLR, we all took some fantastic photos. After two hours of moderate walking, we reached Rudra Nag and stopped to admire the beauty of nature. It is considered one of the main tourist attractions in the Parvati Valley. This meandering waterfall. Here we met a local who told us that other towns like Calga, Pulga, and Turga have it. He said that a mighty demon, Tadkasura, defeated Deva thousands of years ago. Then the gods visited Brahma and asked Mahdwi to praise them. It was Mahadev who told them, “I will reincarnate and marry Lord Shiva soon, and the offspring will be the losers of the devil.”
Then we continued our ascent for 3 hours. This trail is quite a challenging climb. We follow the marks on the tree. At least five times, my sister asked me the same question: “How long do we have to walk a day?” Surprisingly, before he asked the same question again, we suddenly saw one that said “Welcome to Kheerganga,” symbols. The green grass of
Kheerganga is right in front of us. Unexpectedly, we stored the bags in the tent and then went to the hot spring for a refreshing bath. Finally, the fatigue was over. Men and women separated the pool.
Later we visited the cave of Kartikeya and prayed to Lord Kartikeya. The excellent climate, magnificent picturesque landscapes, green forests, friendly people, and healing water from the hot springs made our trip worthwhile. We stayed one night at Kheerganga camp.
We woke up the following day and saw a beautiful sunrise. Then, after bathing again in the sacred thermal pool, we followed the same path towards Kheerganga to Kasol. For me, this was a mysterious hike, which brought a lot of excitement and enthusiasm.
