Kasol & Kheerganga Trek Itinerary
DAY 1: KASOL TO CHALAAL (2km | 1hour)
Misty morning, tall trees, untouched hills, and a breath of fresh air - this is exactly what Kasol is! Upon reaching Kasol and a bit of walking, reach your campsite. Enjoy the greener and happier space by the riverside. Take some rest and have your fill of breakfast. Once you are up and ready, it will be time to explore the ‘Little Amsterdam’ while making our way to Chalal. While a walk through the lanes of Kasol, you will notice many Israeli cafes and shops to buy your souvenirs from. Gradually, we will walk towards, what is known as Trance and Psychedelic party village- Chalaal. This little village is tucked in the conifer dense forest. The walk doesn’t take more than 2 hours hyphenated with breaks. One can sit at the end of the village admiring the beauty of the fiercely flowing Parvati river. Later in the evening, we will come back to the camping site; dance the night away around a bonfire while having taste buds teasing dinner.
DAY 02 KASOL-BARSHAINI-RUDRANAG-KHEERGANGA(12km | 3-4hrs)
The thrilling Kheerganga trek begins from the small village of Kasol, situated on the banks of the serene Parvati River. After pickup, move to Barshaini, the point of confluence of Parvati and Tosh Rivers, to start hiking. Report at base camp before 10 AM to start the trek. While strolling through the magnificent landscape of Himachal Pradesh, you will be treated to majestic sights of nature. On the trail, pass a few wooden bridges and some slippery sections. During this part of the Kheerganga trek from Kasol, your eyes also feast on many picturesque waterfalls; remember to take pictures of every single one of these. Later, arrive at Rudra Nag, and take a small halt to admire the beauty of the landform. The serpent-shaped waterfall has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Parvati Valley and a popular stop for trekkers. The approximately 12-km hike along the gushing Parvati River also takes you to the villages of Kalga and Pulga. This is a great time to learn about the local way of life and see how people survive here.

After reaching the green meadow of Kheerganga, take a refreshing dip in the hot springs to wash off the fatigue of the journey. The cool weather and vistas of the mighty peaks of the Himalayas, and the therapeutic water of the hot springs is unique combination; an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. Later, enjoy a good night’s sleep in your camp to gather energy for the next day.
DAY 03 CHECK OUT
