    Wake early in the morning. Freshen Up, have breakfast and make your move to Barshaini which is the trekking point to Kheerganga. Kheer Ganga lies at the extreme end of Parvati valley and the last inhibited village while trekking to pin valley via Pin-Parvati pass. The place has spiritual vibes to it. It is said that lord Shiva meditated here for nearly 3000 years. The place Kheerganga got its name from the view it allows for its trekkers, of “kheer” flowing down. Kheerganga's panoramic skies and vast greenery are a much-needed delight to the trekker's eyes and especially the tired legs. It is a holy place with a hot water spring, a small temple of Lord Shiva and a bathing tank. It makes a rare combination for any trekker to bath in hot spring water when its too cold there.

    We keep making our way up, stopping at cafes to rejuvenating yourself. After reaching the highest point of your trip, slip into our camps and freshen up. As the evening light fades away making its way for a sky full of stars. Having our dinner and sharing our travel stories and experiences, bonfire to toast you up.
