Kheer Ganga (3050 meters) lies at the extreme end of Parvati valley and the last inhabited village while trekking to pin valley via Pin-Parvati pass. Kheerganga's panoramic skies and vast greenery are a much-needed delight to the trekker's eyes and especially the tired legs. It is a holy place with a hot water spring, a small temple of Lord Shiva and a bathing tank. It makes a rare combination for any trekker to bath in hot spring water when everything is covered by snow.

Day 1 | Start your trek from Barshaini to Kheerganga - 12 KM

From here you will start the 12 km long trek to Kheerganga. The estimated time to cover this trek is 5-6 hours.
The beginning of the trek is a gentle incline, the path lined with beautiful apple orchards. You can hear the constant roar of the river Parvati flowing nearby, easily visible from Barshaini.
Upon reaching, you can relax for a while at the camp set up at Kheerganga.
Once you’ve uploaded your backpacks, you can jump into the Parvati Kund, the hot water spring - a highlight of the trip. The sight of the snow-capped mountains, easily visible in the distance, are almost comical in their direct contrast to the warm water flowing around you.
After your tiredness from the trek has been washed away, you are welcome to enjoy the scrumptious meal prepared for you, before retiring to your tents for the night.
