My spouse and I, signed up for this Trek during July 16’ 2017. This is our first trek and experience of the Himalayas. While I agree that I did get carried away by the images on the site, but apparently the valley is not always in full bloom. There are meadows with variety of flowers but if you go with the pictures in the site, you would be a bit disappointed. Instead I would recommend you carry the expectation to view green meadows as far as your eyes can see, with patches of purple, blue, red, pink flowers across and occasionally streams flowing in your pathway. Yes, you can drink water from these fresh water mountain stream! Is’nt this an amazing experience! ? ? I just loved every bit of this trek, starting from the Trek Leaders obsession to ensure we are all fit and fine, the small Ghangharia village which bustles with life only during the season of June – Oct, occasional small pitstops selling hot chai and maggi enroute the trek, the glaciers that we got a chance to see and step on, the never ending view of mountains, the beautiful flora (pics inset), the still ‘reflection’ lake atop the Hemkund Sahib, a helicopter ride (my bucket list) , Badrinath, a chance to visit the last village of the Indian Territory – Mana (wow!!), and last but not the least, have hot chai from the last teashop of the Indian Territory. I never expected to get the opportunity to see this village nor interact with the people there. Thank you so much to the Trek Organizers. Overall we did ~47 km of trek on this rugged terrain with steep ascents. We never expected that we could push ourselves so much, but Himalayan range is so magical and serene that you end up getting your strength from nature to push yourselves. I would highly recommend folks to take one chance to visit this land of the mystics! It is a life time experience!

You simply cannot imagine landing up on a place that seems like a fairly land. To my wonder, this came true on the fourth day of our Valley of Flowers trek in Uttaranchal. Loved each & every bit of the trek. There are several packages for this trek, but I would recommend the 6 days’ package. It is easy, short and equally beautiful.

We usually relate the Himalayas with high peaks, snows, glaciers and lot of other things. But if you join this trek, you will get to discover the colourful side of this great mountain range. The valley was so filled with different colourful flowers and appeared like someone has painted them with so many colours.

Why don't I just move to the mountains already? The peace we work for our whole lives, without finding it, is up there. This valley is off the hook; what meets the eyes in this valley is just so soothing and inviting and so not earthly. This is going to be one of my favourite holiday destinations of all time.

I never knew such a place existed out of fairytales, until I took in every speck of beauty the valley of flowers had in store. Indegenous flora, sweet chirping of birds, misty weather, clean, cold streams gurgling amidst rocks. One will be concinved, for sure, they're dreaming all this.

One of best weekends I've spent on a holiday destination. I exhausted my camera's memory within an hour of walking in the valley. I mean, there's so much to look at, so much to admire. I'm definitely coming back here. No one can enough of this valley in one trek.

Best holiday ever. I've never, and I mean never, had a day that came close to the one I spent strolling through the valley and taking in all it's unforgettable essence, so full of life and magically calming. There's no chance I'm getting over this anytime soon.

So I came across a picture of ‘Valley of Flowers’ on Facebook couple of months ago. But, trust me it’s like those pictures of flowers that you come across on various calendars. Beautiful, mesmerizing, running short of words… hell of a trip man.

Take it from me - the valley of flowers has got to be one of the most beautiful places on this planet. The meadows, the unreal - looking stone deserts, unforgettable weather, a spell - binding view. Another visit is just round the corner.
