Kheerganga trek is not too difficult but for a beginner it is not easy also as it is 14 km long trek and last 1 kilometer is really steep uphill climb. It takes most people about 6-7 hours to reach Kheerganga from starting point of trek.

The experience was amazing. Accommodation and food provided was good. The guides were very helpful. The time management could have been better. They relied on public transport till barsheni which took few hours from our trek time. Overall it was a good experience.

Having a place to rest and freshen-up after a long tiring journey from Delhi was a relief. Since we were just two girls we are concerned about safety during the whole trek but evrything was great.
