Kheerganga trek offers a Journey to the great Himalayan snow capped peaks, through the lush green, mystical pine forest. It might just be the antidote we need for the dissatisfaction caused by our monotonous, repetitive and almost mechanical modern lifestyle.
let “Wild Hike Adventures” take you on an expedition to one of the oldest and most beloved trekking destinations in the entire valley.
The trail to Kheerganga takes you across Deep Pine forests laid with mesmerizing waterfalls, into the heart of the Parvati Valley (or as the locals call it “The valley of many mysteries”). Few famous old and remote villages along the isolated Kheerganga trail offer a glimpse into the harmonious local pahari culture or as we call it “the Pahadi way of life”. Overall this trek has some of the most stunning views the valley has to offer.
A key highlight of the trek is a natural sulphur hot water spring in the lap of the snow covered mountains. The overwhelming feeling of joy, once you take a dip in the natural hot spring, while gazing into the vast open meadows can change anyone’s perception of life.

Kheer Ganga Mythology
It’s believed that Lord Shiva’s elder son Karthikey meditated here after losing a race to lord Ganesha, his younger brother. It was During this time that Devi Parvati out of love for her son had a river of milk flow from the mountain, with her goddess powers. Hence, the place was named Kheer Ganga.
Lord Shiva also is believed to have meditated in the valley in the form of a Naga Sadhu for more than 3000 years.
