Experience the true beauty of the Himalayas on a 6-day adventure from Manali to Kheerganga, via Kasol. The journey, which starts and ends in Delhi, will leave you yearning for more as you take in the views, culture, and natural wonders of Kasol.

From one of the most popular hill stations of our country, Manali, to the small captivating village Kasol which is situated in the Kullu district, this trip is a perfect blend of popular tourist attractions and a peaceful getaway to undiscovered locations.  Manali, popularly known as Lover’s Paradise has earned this reputation because of its beautiful views, cool climate, and tons of activities that it provides to people to keep things lively and fun.

On this trip, we explore some of the best places to visit in Manali, where we take you on a sightseeing tour to Hadimba Temple, Vashisht Temple, Mall Road, and Cafe hopping in Old Manali to give you a glimpse of what life is like in this township.

The main attraction of the trip is Kheerganga. Kheerganga trek is one of the most well-known destinations for trekking and is located at an altitude of 9,700 ft. Nestled deep in the Parvati Valley, it’s considered nature’s paradise as the beauty is almost spellbinding. The Kheerganga trek reveals stunning terrains and provides an invigorating experience when one keeps walking on its enchanting trails. Here, you get to enjoy the lush green valleys in their purest form, hear the chirping of birds that has faded with time in metropolitan cities, and experience peace like no other.

You’ll also get a chance to learn about the culture of Kheerganga while camping there. The history of Kheerganga dates back thousands of years and the place is considered the abode of Lord Shiva.

The best time to do the Kheerganga trek is from September to June as the weather is pleasant and you can experience the true essence of this Himalayan trek with crystal clear skies and breathtaking vistas.

If you prefer a warmer climate and want to witness the spring flowers blooming all across the vast expanse of land, then March to June are the best months to do the Kheerganga trek. If you wish to trek on snow-laden trails where the entire landscape is covered in ivory white, then the months from November to February would be ideal for doing the Kheerganga trek in winter.

Hot water springs and breathtaking views are a few things that make the Kheerganga trek a truly beautiful experience. The phenomenon of hot water springs in the midst of such cold weather fascinates a lot of travelers and adds a certain boost to the tourism of Kasol and Kheerganga.

The Kheerganga trek is a beginner-level trek as there is a gentle incline and it only gets steep at some patches in the trail making it easier for novice trekkers who don’t have a lot of experience to get the feel of walking on the mountains. You can rejuvenate yourself by dipping your feet in the cold water as there are many sparkling waterfalls on the trek route.

Get ready to satisfy your travel quest, and explore the hidden gems of this picturesque destination.
