    The agent Ramesh Sharma was very very good, he was very genuine and helpful and polite.. He helped us keep our luggage safely. The trek is definitely great but our guide was not so helpful but the trail was itself leading to the destination. Our guide left us on our way down and was not seen thereafter.. The lodging and food on kheerganga was quite good. The guide was giving us a twin share small tent but that could be easily wet if it rained, so we asked him to provide us a bigger tent and he did.. Kheerganga is astoundingly beautiful. Must visit..

    Was a great experience since this was my first trek. Would have enjoyed more if the guide was more co-operative. There were individuals in the team who took a lot of time to climb but the guide was nowhere to help

    We visited there in the month of November and it was covered with 4ft snow throughout the trek. We had done treks before so we’re able to reach till Kheerganga Top. The Parvathi Kund was spectacular and we didn’t believe to see hot water in such a cold temperature. It was beautiful and the views of snow-capped mountains are breathtaking.
