Giri Ganga

The 6km trail to Giri Ganga goes through breathtaking Deodar woods. It is off the Theog Road which goes towards Rohru.

There is an interesting story behind the name ‘Giri Ganga’. Long ago a sage toppled his ‘Ganga Jal’ pot while carrying it from Haridwar. Hence the name ‘Giri – Ganga’.

Certain sections of the trail have been paved with flagstones. I remember spending a boatload when we paved our backyard with flagstones. Out here one can find ’em all over the place!

    Lovely work in showcasing this destination. It is a unique trek and once you reach Giriganga the more adventurous ones can climb further tot he plateau on the top from where the snow melt starts.. It is a tough climb though. I myself did not venture further as it was ranining.

    Lovely photos too.
