    Arrive at Haridwar railway station at 07:00 am and then board a vehicle to Auli.

    A long yet interesting drive is awaiting.

    Enjoy the mind blowing drive along the Ganga and Alakananda rivers on your side.

    On the way, cross the holy towns of Rishikesh, Dev Prayag and Rudra Prayag.

    Check-in to the lodge set up in an apple orchard.

    Stay overnight in Auli.

  • Day 2 - AULI (2450M) - GOVINDGHAT - GHANGARIA (3050M) (DRIVE / 1 HR) (TREK / 4 - 5 HRS)

    Start early morning with a drive about an hour to reach Govindghat. It is the starting point of the trek.

    Start trekking by crossing the river Alakananda first over a bridge and then continue walking toward the Bhundar Valley. Cross the thick forested areas and a few villages en route.

    On the way, you will see a number of refreshing waterfalls and the lush green landscapes as well.

    After the moderate 14 km long trail, you will reach Ghangria in 5 hours.

    Stay overnight in Ghangria.

  • Day 3 - GHANGARIA (3050M) - VALLEY OF FLOWERS (3600M) - GHANGARIA (3050M) (TREK / 4 - 5 HRS)

    A short ascent to the valley is the highlight of the day.

    Indulge in a moderate trek which would take around 2 hours to reach the valley of flowers where unending meadows blanketed by the rare Himalayan flowers.

    At the entrance of the Valley stands the snow-clad peak of Ratban Parvat, towards the left is Nar Parvat, which separates the Badrinath valley from this valley, and to the right is dense Birch forest on the hillsides.

    Spend three to four hours exploring the different corners of the valley and by late afternoon, head back to the hotel at Ghangria.

  • Day 4 - Ghangaria (3050m) - Hemkund Sahib (4329m) - Ghangaria (3050m) (Trek / 6 - 7 Hrs) or Ghangaria (3050m) - Valley Of Flowers (3600m) - Ghangaria (3050m) (Trek / 4 - 5 Hrs)

    Choose either option 1 or option 2 for the day.

    Climb to Hemkund Sahib which has many steeps at places and will take about 3 - 4 hours.

    Hemkund Sahib is a popular Sikh Shrine built next to the beautiful lake. The lake is surrounded by wild flowers with Brahmkamal being the most popular.

    Pilgrims take a dip in the freezing cold waters of the lake, not an easy task. The hot tea served in the Gurudwara (shrine) is divine to say the least. Also, visit the Laxman mandir next to the Gurudwara. Towards afternoon head back to Ghangria. Stay overnight in the hotel at Ghangharia.
