  • Trip introduction

    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.

    Destination

    Located at an altitude of 15,200 feet, the Valley of Flowers trek is one of the most beautiful valleys in Uttarakhand.
