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