If you have a thing for visiting places with religious value, this trek has to be on your list as the trek holds beautiful Parvati Kund, a holy hot spring that is just what you need to feel when it’s too cold outside.

At Parvati Kund, at Kheerganga highest point, there is a Shiva temple. Hinduism believes that after losing to Lord Ganesha, Kartikeya, Lord Ganesha’s brother, was known to meditate and pray in Kheerganga. While visiting her son, Parvati had the need to make rice pudding. Legends claim that because of the hot water spring nearby, Parvati actually cooked in the natural hot water itself. This holy, mystical tourist destination was given the name Kheerganga in honour of this significant legendary event.

Kheerganga, which is situated in Parvati Valley (Kullu Valley), is one of your best options if you’re travelling solo or as a couple. The journey starts from Kasol where you will spend your first day exploring Kasol and Chalal village. On the second day, the trek begins in the small village of Barshiani, which is located four kilometres before Tosh. Barshaini to Kheerganga is 12 kilometres away, and the trip takes 5 to 6 hours.
