Valley of Flowers Trek

Amongst all the exhilarating trekking in Uttaranchal or Uttarakhand, the trek to the Valley of Flowers is known to be the most enchanting and mesmeric.

Uttrrakhand is the perfect destination for trekkers and skiers like me, And Auli is a stunning hill-station and quite challenging as well.Plus its a chilly and moderate difficulty level trek.
