A trip to Kheerganga makes sense for a future vacation, whether you are a beginner or an adventurer looking to climb deep into the Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh. This is one of the most popular treks for visitors to Parvati Valley.
Kheeganga has a long history as a place of pilgrimage for Hindus and Sikhs. Before we get into the travel guide, let’s take a closer look.
The Story of Kalyug
When Shivji and Parvati Ji went here on Satyug, Kheer appeared from nowhere. However, Parvati Ji tells Purushotam to change the kheer and throw himself into the river, knowing that the Kalyugs (meaning us!) will fight for him.
Guru Nanak visits Kheeganga. During Udasi, Guru Nanak Singh Ji visited his disciple, Bhai Mardana, at Kheeganga. Bhai Mardana was hungry during one of these visits, but there was no food. Bhai Mardana went to Langar to get aata (flour) from Guru Nanak Ji. However, there is no fire nearby to cook the chapatis. Guru Nanak ji asked Mardana to remove a big stone, which caused hot water to come out. Rotis fell when Mardana threw it into the water. Mardana prayed to God, on the advice of Guru Nanak Ji, for the rotis to rise again, and when this happened, he paid his dues by giving food to others. Rotis come back to the surface after they are cooked well.
Therefore, anyone who gives a gift in the name of God with good intentions will always have significant karma attached to him.
