Overview

The trek starts from the village of Barshaini, the road-head in the Parvati valley. A moderate ascent of around 5 hrs brings one to Khirganga, which is a hot spring where Lord Shiva is said to have meditated. The difference between the springs here and in Manikaran is that after a bath in Khirganga, your skin will feel greasy whereas after a bath in the spring at Manikaran, your skin will feel dry.

This trek is said to be one of the most spectacular treks in the region that takes one up the lush green Parvati valley to the source of the sacred Parvati River, which is the high-altitude Mantalai Lake, nestled at the foot of majestic high peaks of the Himalaya. Most portion of the trek passes through the outskirts of the Great Himalayan national park and there are quite a few opportunities on this trail to explore myriad flora & fauna of the Indian Western Himalaya.  This is the perfect trek for nature lovers and people who have an interest in the spiritual & natural history of the Kullu Himalaya.
