About khirganga trek
This trek leads through hilly terrain. This is the place where ‘Kartik Ji’, the elder son of ‘Lord Shiva’ remained in ‘samadhi’ for thousands of years. Khirganga is one of the most refreshing treks that you can go on anywhere. The natural hot-water-spring experience is something that you’ll remember for lifetime. Most people who reach this place always come back for second time as you can simply not get enough of such a place. The place is open for about 6-7 months in a year and is not permanently inhabited.
If you have heard of Parvati Valley, Kasol or Khirganga, there is no need to describe how amazing this 7-day trekking trip will be. We offer you a one-in-a-life-time adrenaline-rush experience and take you to the most beautiful places in the Himalayas including Kasol, Barsheni, Nakthan and the show-stopper Khirganga.
