Khirganga is a well-known tourist destination located at Manikaran. It is said that the white water of the hot springs has medicinal properties. Etymologically, the name ‘khirganga’ came from the white water of the Hot Springs. The spring water gets its creamy white colour from the sulphur present in it, which floats up to the surface.
Mantalai, famous for its scenic naturalistic beauty, located at a short distance of 2 km from Khirganga, also attracts visitors to the place. Pulga, which features a stunning view of river Parvati and snow white mountains is also linked with Khirganga via a trekking route.
