Closest Town to Kheerganga: Bharsheni
Kasol is famous place for Marijuana and you need to stay away from all the hippies who are there in huge numbers all throughout the year. No prizes for guessing ! It is cheaply available.
You can even enjoy hot springs at ‘Manikaran Gurdwara’ which is about 15 minutes walking distance from Kasol and do try the tasty “Langar” at the Gurudwara. KheerGanga (hot springs)is the best place for a hot bath after a day’s hike in the woods. Options of staying at KheerGanga for a night or two are definetly there. Soup, tea, noodles or a proper meal will keep you warm.
How to reach KheerGanga Hot Springs: Take a bus from Delhi and Reach “Bhuntar” —- 12-13 hours Take a local bus from Bhuntar to Kasol —– 30 minutes Take a local bus from Kasol to Bharsheni Village —- 30 minutes From the Barsheni Village your trek for Kheerganga would consume maximum 3 to 5 hours depending upon the conditions and your level of fitness.
