My Kasol & Kheerganga Trek in 2020 as a Trip Manager

Kasol ; ;Kheerganga

2020 has already marked its place in history because of the reason known to all COVID-19. The flip side of the same is people started adapting to the new norm. I being a passionate travel and trip organizer was under tremendous pressure to organize a trip.  It was not only to gratify my soul but for the solo travelers in my group who wanted to fly from the prison of work from home and other restrictions too.

I believe in the miracle, and since Kheerganga was on top of my mind I finally made it happen on the night of 29th October i.e. Thursday. This article will share the detailed itinerary of what all you can explore and how you can plan your trip. Read the article till the end and share the comments.

I consider myself a smart solo traveler. That’s how I came up with the concept of travel solo and smart. Further, how I leveraged this smartness by  convincing  eight more solo souls besides me to make it happen. So we were a group of  9 people who started our journey from Gurgaon through a Tempo Traveller.

We started around 9 pm. With 2-3 pitstops, we were able to reach Kasol by 2 pm. It usually takes 15-16 hours to reach the city. We were more or less on time, a little delayed because of the more than one stops.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1

We were in Kasol. Checked in our camps. It was triple sharing. Took tea, freshen up, and took a walk to the city. Our stay was in the heart of  Kasol, so everything was available within walking distance. We had our lunch at the evergreen café. While walking on the streets , we tried momos and other local cuisines too.

After lunch, It was time to explore the local trek at chalal. The picturesque site at the riverside was not only breathtaking but equally rejuvenating.

In the night, we were all set to explore the local cafes. The travelers were all set to try every bit of Kasol. From a live concert at Panchtara to the trout fish with bonfire is what made our first day out of the world.

It was a much-needed break from coronavirus blue in Delhi.

After having a fulfilling first day, we were all set to the trek for the next day to Kheerganga.

Day 2

After awakening to the fresh morning, we were all set to take trek  to  Kheerganga. We had our breakfast at camps and started at 930 am. Our tempo traveler dropped us at barshaini. It took us 1 hour to reach there from Kasol.

Kheerganga is a 12 km trek. We were planning to stay there, so we were carrying our backpacks. The expedition was beautiful yet rocky so you need to watch your every step at every threshold.

Another thing not to be missed is to have a sip of water whenever you feel tired.

The route we choose to start the trek was through Cagra village, which was best route to climb up .

In between, there were many cafes, but the one that was best was Raasta. We had our energy drinks and had great clicks with some fun by dancing to the tunes of some pepe numbers . So it was a good kick start of the trek.

After taking many challenging and easy terrain, we finally checked-in to our camps in Kheerganga. It was 31st  Oct Halloween night too and blue moon as well.

Bonfire is what you need for some candid conversations, and it was all set on the top. After playing musical jingle and candid conversations, we had a great sleep.

Day 3

One thing that Kheerganga is famous for is its hot water spring. So the morning, we pack our stuff and left early in the morning to enjoy the healing hot water spring.

Post that, you can visit the Shiva temple on the top. Though I missed because of time crunch.

After that, we came back to our camp, had breakfast, and left ago to Barshaini. This time we choose to take Nathan village route.

The view was different and as splendid as the  route we choose while starting the trek.  

It took us 4 to 6 hours to reach back.

From Barshini to Kasol, it was around a 1-hour distance. We stopped at Kasol for dinner and then started back to Delhi. In between, there was just one more stop after few hours, and then it was a non-stop journey. We were able to enter Delhi within 12-13 hours, which couldn’t be better.

Our journey came to an end with lots of sweet memories and many learning experiences, especially for me as a Trip organizer.

Key Learnings:-

So on this trip, I sponsored a Youtuber who helped me in creating two of my videos, as you can see below:- Yes, the video came out good, but then I learned that before approaching any of an Influencer, your product should be established as end of the journey its there call if they would like to give a shout out to you or not.

I  picked a  cohost who paid me just 50% of the amount; however, during the trip, she was literally dictating the things on her terms rather than consulting me. So my learning before choosing any assistance set very clear expectations.

Since both the above were through reference, so was aniticipating better support. Neverthless such experiences makes you learn better and your trip complete.

Last but not least, as a Trip organizer, people don’t care where you are coming from. All they expect is you should be on your toes to facilitate them.

Though all travelers went back making lifetime friends. But I can’t forget that one incidence when they expected me to ensure them to have everything.  It was about the additional blanket and pillow in the camp in Kheerganga. However, it was briefed before the journey that the camps will be available with basic amenities.

I was also relaxed as I thought the cohost would manage, but she was too lost giggling, and all of them started jumping on me.  So morning, Day 3 was memorable as it ended in good fight. It was also driven by one of the other female of the cohost who want to quench her ego . She got some skill in influencing the members. So was the other businessman in the group who became friends with these two females.

However, at the end of the journey, I realized that all this makes you smarter, so I aptly named my venture Travel Solo and Smart .

Anyways as is said, all well that ends well; I am happy the journey came to an end on a good note and all got sorted there and then. There are lots of takeaways for me as well. All the feedback I plan to take constructively and I am more clear about what my Brand Travel Solo and Smart stand for now.

If you wish to join in future journey, than first you must be part of the meetup group and then closed WhatsApp group .

Hope you enjoyed the article and soon plan a trip to Kasol and Kheerganga .
