1It’s a sin to leave without trekking to Kheer Ganga
It’s a sin to leave without trekking to Kheer Ganga

Trek to Kheer Ganga is a nine kilometer, four hour steep climb on narrow trails.

Amit:  The trek to kheerganga is very exciting and adventurous. It was a two days trek. After reaching the top the feeling was really amazing. There is a hot water spring at the top was beautiful.

A base camp!

Bhuntar serves as a major city and as a base camp for the people going to kheer Ganga and pin parvati trek. There is nothing much to do in town but it is the only place from where you can get connecting buses for other states. From bhuntar you can go to manikaran, Kasol, tosh, kheerganga and many other adjoining small destination . There are hot water springs in manikaran and kheerganga. Both of the places are religious while you can reach manikaran by road on the other hand you have to trek 13km to kheerganga. The trek is rewarding!

Bhuntar Overview

Bhuntar is one of the main towns and a nagar panchayat in Kullu district of the state of Himachal Pradesh, situated on the confluence of the Parbati and Beas rivers. Located 10 km south of Kullu, this town serves as the gateway for travelling to major tourist destinations in the state, Kullu and Manali. The lofty mountains surrounding Bhuntar further offer ample opportunities to explore the natural wilderness, and indulge in varied adventure activities like white water rafting and camping.

This gateway to Kullu Valley has a mythological history that bears resemblance to Noah in The Bible. Legends reveal that Manu, the founder of civilisation, arrived in Bhuntar and set up a democratic counsel here for the Hindu gods that embarked upon the responsibility of governing the society. Much like the 'Valley of Gods', Kullu, Bhuntar is characteristic of two main religions, Hinduism and Sikhism. River Satluj flowing across the town offers healing to many sicknesses here.

Located at 31° 52' N 77° 09' E, Bhuntar is dotted with several pilgrimage centres in close proximity, most famous of which is the Bushweshwar Temple. Other places of interest in the vicinity of Bhuntar are Jagannath Temple and Bijli Mahadev Temple. Besides luring tourists willing to explore the Indian heritage, Bhuntar is often frequented by visitors travelling to Manikaran, as an en route site. River Beas flowing near Bajaura village is another major attraction of the town of Bhuntar.

Situated at an altitude of about 2050 m, Bhuntar is a major centre in Himachal Pradesh for activities like fishing, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking and even skiing. Another major attraction of this town is the Bhuntar Fair, a popular fair in North India, which is held on 1st Ashad (June to July) for 3 days as a celebration of newly harvested crops. Himachali, Hindi, Mahasui, Urdu, Punjabi and English are the major languages spoken by the populous of the region, which amounts to 5000.

Bhuntar has its own airport that serves daily flights operated by Archana Airways and Jagson Airways, from Delhi and Shimla to Kullu. The nearest railhead to Bhuntar is situated 320 km away, in Chandigarh. Another railway station serving tourists travelling to Bhuntar is the Pathankot Railway Station. Buses, coaches and taxis are also available from Delhi and Chandigarh to travel to Bhuntar, via NH 21. The best time to visit the town of Bhuntar is from September through March.
