  • Trip introduction

    This 6-day trek to Valley of Flowers is not just a treat to the eyes but also a balm to the heart. Rich in biodiversity, this high altitude Himalayan valley is picturesque to say the least. The sight of a valley full of colourful flowers of various hues and shades, nestled between rugged Himalayan slopes, is one that you will cherish forever.

    Starting from Govindghat, a small town located at the confluence of the Alakananda and the Lakshman Ganga rivers, you'll trek to Ghangaria, the last human settlement in the Bhyundar Valley. You also visit Hemkund Sahib, a Gurdwara on the shores of a glacial lake. Depending on weather and road conditions, you may also get to visit Badrinath, home of the holy temple of Badrinath.

    This is a moderately challenging trek to Valley of Flowers and is perfect for newcomers. The best time to undertake the Valley of Flowers trek is between June and October.

    Destination

    Located at a height of 12,000 feet above sea level, the undulating meadows of the Valley of Flowers is home to a wide variety of indigenous alpine flowers. Orchids, marigolds, primulas, poppies and many other such flowers carpet the floor of the valley.

    This picturesque landscape is also the habitat of several endangered species of animals such as the Asiatic black bear, snow leopards and musk deer. Largely unknown to the outside world until 1931, today the Valley of Flowers trek is not only a great attraction for trekkers but also has tremendous ecological significance.

    Destination highlights

    • Explore the wee Himalayan village of Ghangaria and its surroundings.
    • Absorb the enchanting beauty of the Valley of Flowers.
    • Trek up steep slopes to the icy Hemkund Sahib.
    • Walk around the picturesque town of Joshimath.
