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.

Skiing Basic Course, Auli: This is a paradise for the avid skiers. While you are an avid skier like me, go ahead and take it, you will not regret it. However, if you are new to skiing the if might be a little tough although this is a basic course. The Auli skiing course centre is located in Garhwal range of Himalays. This is almost about a 250km drive away from Haridwar. We reached here from Rishikesh which was 320km from here. The best part about Auli is that it offered us with immense opportunities to indulge in skiing. Thanks to its high altitude ranging between 2500m to around 3000m! The Skii trip overlooks the majestic peaks of Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dronagiri.

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.
