About the Valley of Flowers, India

The beautiful Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand, India is a must-see world heritage site and is located within the Nanda Devi National Park in the far interiors of Garhwal Himalayas. It covers 87 sq kms and rises to an elevation of 3250 metres or 11,980 feet.

The Valley of Flowers in India opens for tourists between June to September, and peak blooming season is from mid-July to mid-August. During this season, over 300 species of wild flowers such as orchids, poppies, Cobra Lily Anemones as well as the elusive and rare Blue Poppy, and Brahmakamal bloom here. Besides this, the Valley of Flowers is also home to animals such as the snow leopard and the endangered Asiatic black bear, amongst others.

About the Valley of Flowers trek

The Valley of Flowers trek is a moderate trek and is great for both first timers as well as experienced trekkers looking to visit. Despite the ease and popularity of this trek, the beauty of the valley remains pure and untouched. Every few days, some blooms fade, while new buds open up, creating a rainbow of perpetually changing colour. The sight of the Valley of Flowers, full of colourful blossoms of various hues and shades, nestled between rugged Himalayan slopes, is one that you will cherish forever. Apart from this, there are waterfalls, glaciers, towering mountains, mighty rivers and quaint villages to be explored.

Itinerary for Valley of Flowers trek

The Valley of Flowers trek has a bouquet of itineraries, allowing you to customise your trek to suit your preferences. Nature-lovers can choose to spend more time in the valley, soaking up its breath-taking beauty and taking photographs or trekking through to beautiful vantage points with sweeping, panoramic views of the Garhwal Himalayan mountain range.

For the more adventurous, you can extend your trek and visit the serene Hemkund lake, with its emerald green waters, and the Hemkund Sahib Gurudwara on the banks. This is an important pilgrimage spot for Sikhs, and you’ll be awed to see ageing and frail devotees breaking the ice on the lake to take a holy dip in the freezing water.

Valley of Flowers Weather

The climate in the Valley of Flowers is what makes it so special. The valley receives heavy rainfall during the monsoon, and freezes almost immediately afterwards, when the snow begins. The valley remains snowbound for at least six months. After this, once the snow melts, the flowers burst forth in successive stages, eager to be out of the cold ground.

During the Valley of Flowers trekking season, the temperatures are mild, with cooler nights and chances of rain.

Trip Description
The Valley of Flowers trek is arguably one of the most gorgeous treks in India, if visited in the right season. There are carpets of flowers to walk on, in a riot of colours, all releasing their delicate fragrance into the cool air around you. From geraniums to marigolds to rhododendron, this adventure is real floral festival. The best time to visit is after the snow has melted, when the valley springs to life. It's not just the flowers; you'll see streams trickling down from the slopes all around, creating small waterfalls all around. There's a fine mist in the air, and you'll be walking along cobbled paths that lead you through lush greenery. In the distance, you can see snow-capped peaks.

This itinerary gives you a full day to explore the valley, and also takes you to Hemkund Sahib, the holy pilgrimage spot for the Sikh community. The gurudwara stands beside a lake that has ice floating in it, but the freezing water doesn't deter devotees from taking a dip. You'll also visit Rudraprayag and Devprayag, to see the glorious river confluences that these riverside towns are famous for.
    Inclusions
  • Accommodation in twin or triple sharing tents
  • Sleeping bags and roll-on mattresses
