Trekking Route to Kheer Ganga : There are two trekking routes in Kheerganga, crossing through a rich and enchanting forest. There are numerous small pitch stops with tea and Maggi points. A lot of travellers prefer to climb up from one side and come down from the other.

1. Kalga – Kheer Ganga Route : Kalga-Kheer Ganga is 9 KM long and this route crosses from the more densely thick forest. Travellers prefer this route to climb up as it is shorter in distance.

2. Nagthan-Rudrath- Kheer Ganga Route : This route is 11 km long and crosses Nagthan Village. Which is a small Himalayan village with traditional houses. On the route is a snake like waterfall called Rudranath. A small bridge connects Rudranath with the Kalga-Kheer Ganga Route. This Route is more rocky in terrain and is easier to climb down then to climb up.
