About Kheerganga

Kheerganga is located in the iconic Parvati Valley in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh. The Kheerganga trek is perfect for beginners as it not an arduous trek and the region is achingly beautiful with pristine views of the Parvati and Tosh Rivers, the glacier of Lahaul Spiti and lofty mountains for company.

About the Kheerganga trek:

There are plenty of trekking trails in this region and travellers flock here for its hot sulphur springs and relaxed vibe. The Kheerganga trek starts from Barsheni village which is where the Parvati and Tosh rivers meet. On this Kheerganga trek you will be walking along the top of a ridge and you can expect to spend some time negotiating tricky descents, crossing a gorge, and walking beside the gushing Beas river. The trek has lots of interesting sights enroute such as a Shiv Temple, Rudra Naag waterfall which is a waterfall that looks like a snake and an interesting variety of flora and fauna.

The Kheerganga Malana trek will take you past ancient shrines, rocky outcrops and quaint tribal villages with traditional wooden homes. Kheerganga is infamous for cannabis production and on the Kheerganga Malana trek you will be sure to see lots of marijuana fields. At night, you'll camp out in tents, amidst terraced green fields and picturesque meadows. The beauty of nature here will leave you in a stupor as you advance on your Kheerganga Malana trek.

About Malana

The highlight of this trek however, is the Himachali village of Malana. If you’re curious about this legendary village, where the locals run their own democracy, speak a language known only to themselves (and believed to be the devil’s language), and fiercely guard their culture against outsiders, this Kheerganga trek will gives you a glimpse into their lives.

Malana is the oldest village in the state of Himachal and is surrounded by the peaks of Chandrakhani and Deo Tibba. Apart from the cannabis-related taboo surrounding the village, there are ancient temples and structures to admire, and plenty to learn on your Kheerganga Malana trek. The village itself lies in the midst of beautiful forests at a height of 9500 feet, so you’ll have gorgeous views all along your Kheerganga trek.

You'll get to see a lifestyle and a belief system that is different from anything you've seen before and you will cross Manikaran which lies in Punjab. Located in the Parvati Valley, Manikaran is as beautiful as it is holy and you will get a chance to swim in the Manikaran Sahib (Gurudwara) hot sulphur springs.

Best season for Kheerganga Malana treks

The summer months are beautiful on the Kheerganga Malana route. The skies are clear, the streams and rivers sparkle in the sunlight, and wildflowers dot the slopes. The weather is pleasant during the day, and can get chilly at night.
