My first legit trek, quite arduous but end is worth the hype, under the star lit sky and hot water spring.

This isn't a particularly stenurous hike, but is definitely very unsafe, dangerous and treacherous. The trail is not kept in a good condition, resulting in places where a slip of the foot will result in a drop into the ravine. There are spots where the trail has been washed out. Hikers don't tend to stick to the trail and take several shortcuts resulting in divergent trails that are more dangerous. There have even been numerous deaths in the last 2 months. Do not go here when it starts raining. The mud makes it even more dangerous. https://www.ndtv.com/cities/kheer-ganga-to-barshaini-trek-himachal-pradesh-woman-trekker-dies-after-being-hit-by-falling-rocks-2046627 https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/shimla/tourist-dies-while-trekking-in-kullu/articleshow/69016581.cms

Amazing hike! Wouldn’t say it’s particularly easy, but not hard. Steady incline for about 5 hours. Climbed up to a rainbow gathering and stayed for a few days. The chai shops are wonderful and sitting in the hot springs under the stars is sooo worth it. Stunning place.
