We are a few friends planning to go for a winter trek around Dec 11. After a lot of discussion, we boiled down to take up Kheerganga in dec as this is our vacation time. We will be a group of 5-6 friends (boys and girls), some of us have done serious expeditions, but this is the first time we are moving to himalayas in winters. Here, I wish to know how suitable will the trail be? I know its gonna be terribly cold but we are fine with that. Also, what difficulties are we likely to face? will the buses ply from manikaran to the base in that month? will there be accommodation and food available or should we carry or own tents and fuel etc? With that, if someone can direct me to some link or person who has previously embarked this journey in mid-dec. And, I wish to ask whether there's a possibility of climbing any peak in the vicinity of that area.
