Himachal Pardesh Best Short Tricks:

Kheerganga Trek

Length: 2 days

Challenge: Easy

High: 13,050 ft.

Start and finish: Via Kasol Barshaini village

In the lovely paradise of the Parvati Valley, Kheerganga is among the most popular routes from Kasol. Kheerganga and the route that leads to it has an incredible natural beauty, in essence, a place of spirituality. 

Barshaini may be reached by bus or taxi from Kasol or Manikaran or directly from the Bhuntar airport, whichever fits best. It’s an easy walk upwards from 11-12 kilometres from there. 

Even with brief rest periods in the centre of several local coffee bars with colourful roofs that point the way, it may be reached within 5-6 hours comfortably.

The tiny Nakthan hamlet and Shiva temple will be crossed by you on your route at the Rudranag Temple. You can stop either up or down. 

You can stop at them. You will also find lush green fields, interrupted by rough cliffs, with bubbling hot springs. 

At the Kheerganga peak, there is the Parvati Kund nature pool, a natural hot water pool where trekkers may soak in and recuperate after a tiresome trip. 

Place a camp at Kheerganga and enjoy the starry evening. Return to Barshaini the next day and catch the coach to Kasol.



Beas Kund Trek

Length: 3 days

Beas Kund is a beautiful glacial green lake that comes from the Beas River. It is thought to be the bathhouse of the Sage Veda Vyas as the Hindu Mahabharata was pondered and written.

The next day, go through the Deodar woods of ancient ages, pine and maple. With the exception of rare cicadas, the quiet amid the woods is fascinating. 

The trees fade as you near the lake, making way for uncut mountain rocks and patches of snow.

The lake itself, with its bright blooms blossoming in the pastures, has a lovely dazzling blue body. You will be accompanied on your trip up by views from highlights such as Hanuman Tibba, Seven Sisters and Friendship Peak. 

Following the grandeur of the peak, continue walking over rocks and rocks to Bakarthach for another 4-5 hours, then return to Dhundi. Walk down to Solang Nallah the next day to finish your journey.
