Wow! I am just awestruck from the beauty of the trek still. The trek was so poignant and beautiful that it left me speechless for so long. This trek is a perfect amalgamation of fun, beauty, and thrill. To start with 8000-16000ft of hiking and trekking the snow-capped mountains was super thrilling; it was just the best experience ever. Then, the gurgling brooks nearby just was fun and fascinating. To finish it up the beauty of surroundings especially the snow filled places was sheer brilliance. If you have not taken this trek in your life, you are missing something great. This is must trip for everyone who is in to or who is interested in trekking. I totally loved this trek; what’s more the trek is quite inexpensive too.

One of the best things that the British gave us is this chanced discovery on a lost path called the Valley of Flowers. This was discovered by the British traveller Frank Smith in the early 1930s. I read his book titled Valley of Flowers. It quite created something inside me. I being a nature lover, this made me feel so nice, and I ended up taking this trek. The Valley Of Flowers Trekking is one of the most sought after and the best treks to take ever.

Wooo! what an amazing trip it was!!Thanks to the tour guide who explained all about the mysterious Roopkund lake. It was an amazing adventure to trek this huge mountains though it was tiring the spirit of the mountain kept us going and going. But after one point when I got fully immersed in the beauty of the lakes and mountain I forgot who I was , what I am doing? All I knew was that I have to trek all the way. That's the beauty of mountains.

A trek to the valley of flowers was something I have been looking forward to do for a long time. Finally, it happened in this July. I am a regular trekker, but Valley of Flowers was a new experience apart from every other trekking expeditions I have done. I went alone there. The most important thing I noticed here is the number of people who come to visit the valley. There were old age people also who were more energetic than the youngsters. Bikers were also there, mostly Royal Enfiled riders. I did not book through any tour operator but alone. I heard that going with a guide will help us very much to know more about the place but still I decided to go alone and I planned it for one week. Hence I visited some other places in the Himalayas. From different websites I understood the things to be taken during the tour. July was not that cold and the snow cover was comparatively less. Yet the wind was slightly cold so that I had to wear jackets throughout. Valley of Flowers was really beautiful. I have not seen so many flowers as in the pictures of it found somewhere online yet there were a lot of meadows with different flowers. The surrounding was actually soothing. I took hundreds of photos in my mobile phone. The names of flowers I saw there were unknown to me but I enjoyed the beauty very well. Since I have gone in my bike, some portions were difficult for me to cross but still I sought help from some of the people I met on the road to get the correct direction. I went to Leh also after the trip. But I got to know that many of the troupes coming to visit the Valley of Flowers seek the help of different tour organizers to make the tour easy. I am also thinking to do an extensive Himalayan trip next time with the help of some tour organizers. Also, I recommend Valley of Flowers from the bottom of my hearts to everyone.

No words to comment about the Valley of flowers. Except there was a situation when the tour was postponed the first time I booked, everything else regarding this trip was good. The group we joined was helpful. We shared water and food with each other. I found the food provided by the service providers not enough to conquer the challenges in front of us. Many of the times, we ate Maggi noodles which do not provide any nutrient. But we carried biscuits and energy bars. So, we were feeling better at the end of each day. To be true, Valley of Flowers is a must visit. During the season, we can see a lot of flowers even though the names are not familiar. Different colours will be all over the valley without showing the greenery. One of my friends who is a photographer clicked thousand photos I think. The tour organizers had one back up vehicle coming behind the trekking group. Anyway, continuously we could not climb the altitudes. We had to take several breaks in between. The seven day trip was full of energetic climbs and camping was also nice. Maggi, eggs, tea, rice and roti, dal etc were the food items provided by the service providers. At night, it was so cold and many of the team members fell sick and had to take medicines to continue the trip. Boots, jackets, warm clothes, altitude sickness preventive medicines etc should be carried any time you visit the Himalayas. And be fit before you head out to do trekking otherwise, you will be really tired. If you plan the trip according to your budget and time, Valley of Flowers trek can be the best team trip.
