  • Trip introduction

    The Kasol-Kheerganga trek is one of the most iconic treks in Himachal Pradesh. It offers a short 2-day trek that beginners will enjoy (although it can be a bit steep), and takes you through gorgeous pine forests and along the Parvati river. You'll stop at the famous serpent-shaped Rudra Nag waterfall, and walk through the quaint villages of Kalga and Pulga, and finally arrive in the meadows of Kheerganga. After a long 7 hour climb, the natural hot springs of Kheerganga are the perfect way to spend the evening. After that, it's time for a bonfire and a hot dinner, before heading to your tent for the night.


    Kasol, also known as 'little Amsterdam,' is lively with Israeli cafes and small souvenir shops. The hippie culture here is evident, from the groovy clothing to the trance parties that are held here. You'll start your trek to Kheerganga from here, but as you ascend, you'll leave civilization far behind. Kheerganga is the last village in the Parvati Valley, and one of the most beautiful too. It lies high in the hills, and you'll be walking through forests of pine, oak, and conifer. You'll be camping up here, with views of the mountains all around.
