Can we do the Kasol Kheerganga trek by ourselves? This is the first question that comes to our mind when we know about the Kheerganga for the first time and want to visit there.
I have been to Kheerganga for one time, and as of my experience, yes, you can do the Kheerganga trek by yourself if you can hike for around 4 to 5 hours.
The one thing you have to keep in your mind is the season, during summer you can find pre-installed tents on the Kheerganga which you can rent, and you can also find food there. But during winter, due to the snow, you have to book a tent in advance, or have to book a camping package.
So the main question is that can you do Kheerganga by yourself throughout the year? Absolutely not. Below I am going to tell you why and explain the things in detail.
Kheerganga Trek In Summer
Summer is the best time for the Kheerganga trek, but you find no snow. You can see the snow-covered mountains around, but there will be no snow on the Kheerganga.
During summer you can do this trek by yourself without any help, whether you are alone, or with one friend, or in a group.
During this time you will find pre-installed tents which you can rent for the night. You can also place your own camp after the permission.
Most of the camps also serve food too, so you don’t need to worry about that. Also, there are some dedicated food points where you can eat things like Maggi, chips, paratha, daal roti, etc.
There is no snow on the trek to Kheerganga in summer, so you can trek without much trouble.
Kheerganga Trek In Winter
In winter, when it’s the time of the snowfall, there is no sense that you will find pre-installed tents on the Kheerganga. Even you also can’t trek the Kheerganga while snowing, so you have to wait for the right time when to get the path a little bit clear.
So during winter, you have to book a tent and all of the essentials in advance from a local service provider.
Or you can also find many camping packages online where they will provide you everything, a tent, food, guide, etc.
If you are solo, then I will not recommend going for Kheerganga alone until you are an experienced trekker and well aware of these kinds of weather conditions.
The best option will be for you to go in a group, or at least pay a local guy who is well aware of those conditions.
You can meet many local guys in Barshini or Kalga, who are used to with those conditions, so they can take you to Kheerganga with proper guidance for some money.
