What happens after you book?
Changes in pre-defined tour program:
The trek to Kheerganga encompasses everything- walking through rivers, waterfalls, holding on to dear life on narrow walkways, apple orchards - you name it. If you're a regular hiker then this one is a dream to do. One of the most beautiful treks, so picturesque that you feel an impulse to reach for your camera or pinch yourself hard to make sure it’s real.
The amazing landscapes, waterfalls and the alpine meadows are bound to make you stop and feel it and soak it in! Trek from Barshaini to Kheer Ganga is 12km. The first cafe comes after 7 Km which will indicate half battle won! Literally. Then comes Rudra Naag cafe in another 3 to 5 km. If you're calling it quits at this point then I'd highly recommend that you carry on the climb - heaven awaits you at the end of it. All your tiredness will be washed away with a sight of the mystical hot springs of Kheerganga. 10 minutes into the pool and you'll be tripping because of the sulphur fumes.
Do not be surprised if you hear Dholak and groups singing and beating some Shiv Natraj Music. It is one of a kind experience! Later, we will gather around the bonfire, have our tummies full and spend the night under a beautiful blanket of stars
Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful morning. It seems like a spectrum painted on the canvas. Spend some time doing nothing at all. There's joy in doing nothing at all. Just laze around in the grass under towering pine trees with the sun filtering through the foliage. While coming back be prepared to leave a part of yourself behind.
