Although it is tricky in many aspects, it still stands to be one of the easiest things to do in Kasol and one of the most daring things to do in Kasol as well. Kheer Ganga lies towards the extreme end of Parvati valley, and for the most part of the year, this place will be covered in snow and sparsely covered in other months, still making for a slippery cover and trail for anyone walking or trekking here.

    This hill is a magical haven for hippies from all over the world and over the past few years has successfully got in Indians to visit its soil. Once you reach the top of the Kheer Ganga, you will find yourself in the beautiful company of magical clouds, dense and moist due to the weather, pine and apple trees right out of fairy tales and snow-capped mountains that give an almost mesmerizing look to the sky. For the more religious and the fascinated by India folk, there is a beautiful and mystical temple of Lord Siva with hot spring baths here for you to see and enjoy.

    Kasol is the best idea for a holiday where you don’t need to do much, simply sit back, relax and let the mountains, pine trees, good food and amazing folk of the place transport you to a whole different world where there is the sound of music in the air from Mother Nature and get a chance to do the exciting things to do in Kasol that have made tourists flock towards the place in excited anticipation.
