Thrillophilia Team(The Booking Platform) : *****(5 Stars) The Valley Of Flowers(The Destination) : *****(5 Stars) Trip date: 8th Sep 2018 So I decided to heed "The Mountain Calling" I have had from last year by gifting myself a trek on my birthday. The main obstacle at that moment was where and how do I start zeroing in on a location and planning. With little effort as a word of mouth I came to know about Thrillophilia platform and half of the job was done in no time. It was very easy and convenient to browse through the trekking locations sorted based on different parameters, packages with detailed information, itinerary and user reviews to make up my mind and choose from. Whatever doubts I had Devashish from the Thrillophilia team was very patient and thorough in helping me through my booking. So Thank you Thrillophilia team for providing people seeking adventure a one-stop solution to book. Happy and proud to say: The Valley of Flowers - Been There Done That! Next, my experience was riding on the logistics and the operator took me by surprise as they swiftly eased me through my apprehensions(i had many being my first solo trip in many many years) right from the time they were assigned as the tour operator for my trek. I found them prompt and precise in sending welcome mail and briefing about the trek and the decorum we needed to maintain in mountains, quick and responsive in every query I had regarding the trek and preparation. I liked their approach of keeping shorter groups and making one to one connection with the whole group to be able to cater to everybody's need to the max of their capacity. A personalised call from trek leader is what I don't expect in this digital age having all the information in the mail or some form but since it was about ensuring that we followed every instruction and didn't miss on anything it felt like a special treatment. We were accompanied by Mr. Narendra Baharwan(Trek Leader) and Samiksha Khanduri (Trek Guide) from the team. I found them very professional yet friendly. After a point, it looked like it wasn't their job but their passion and that's what helped to take their services to next level. I was impressed with their regional associations and tie-ups which helped us to get an essence of the Pahadi culture throughout our trip. I found Mr. Narender as cool, calm and composed leader exactly the kind of person who can get us through challenging and panic situations in mountains. And I could almost call our guide Samiksha "The Trekkipedia" and at times I thought she knew too much (maybe I was jealous ;D). The hotel stays were comfy exactly what you need to rest and recharge yourself for another day challenge. Being a fitness freak I'm very particular about food that I eat. And I was surprised with the food we were served and especially the quality. It was very close to what I eat at home. Also, I would like to use the opportunity to thank the team for a kind and surprise gesture on my birthday improvising on the cake and a flaunting gift. One of the highlights of the trip was responsible and eco-tourism. It felt good to do our bit in maintaining the ecology of mountains. It was equally inspiring to see our host's and Pahadi people's conscious effort to preserve and conserve the nature. And not to forget mentioning meeting some very like-minded and dynamic people in the group was a life fulfilling experience and icing on the cake. And by the end of the tour, everybody appeared almost like long lost friends and it became a party for us. Trek Leader: Mr Narendra Baharwan Trek Guide: Samiksha Khanduri Pilot for the Rides: Mr. Mukesh Auli Lodge Manager: Mr. Bhuvan Ghangaria Home(accommodation) and Food minister: Mr. Shamsher Thank you operator team for your exceptional services!! :) The Valley of Flowers Trek: Being a nature lover I always feel attracted towards nature's wonders. And while browsing on Thrillophilia it didn't take me too long to select the destination as it mentions a blanket of flowers covering a valley in a few km stretches. What a sight would that be was my question to which I had to find an answer. Although there's a peak season catch to be able to see full blossom. Since I visited the valley almost end of the season I saw fewer flowers but I wouldn't say I was disappointed as the mountains standing tall and the waterfalls were mesmerising enough and we could enjoy them totally to ourself as the valley was less crowded at this time. So that's a tradeoff which a person has to decide from but it worked well for me. Sitting beside a waterfall in the lap of nature and drinking mineral right from the source was like unfolding nature's secret. So I do list the location as must visit for whoever seeking nature's blessing and adventure and it's both challenging and soul soothing.

All the arrangements, food, logistics, and support was superb. Both our trek guides especially Mr. Narendra supported and took very good care, continuously motivating and helping throughout the journey. This trek requires good fitness and endurance, it would have been good if we were given a heads up about the steep trails and low oxygen. Other than that I loved and enjoyed the experience. Happy with Thrillophillia team. Devashish was also very patient and helpful.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

There was a lot of buzz at my work about this valley at my workplace, before we set off. After we finished with the weekend, I was wondering if there was enough buzz.

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.

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.

Arguably the best time to explore this heavenly treasure of nature is post monsoon, when it's sight - locking beauty is at it's best. One thing is for certain - you can not die until you've seen this valley. You just don't.

Two words : Holy Shit! I might as well move in Garhwal, so I can practically live in the valley.

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.

We took this hike through the valley in the monsoon season. According to me it's the best period to watch this valley, as it's youth is at it's brim during monsoon. It was a genuinly memorable experience.

It was like we were reading a story book and this valley was painted in that book. Even the trek to the main valley was a memorable one. Not so much problem we faced, our guides were so helpful, and the arrangements were also wonderful.

Starting off at Govindghat, I had slight doubts about the whole thing, but as the trek unfolded and we went further and further, I had no doubts whatsoever. Definitely worth a visit.

When I was booking tickets, I was thinking about why was it called the valley of flowers, such cliché name. With the first full sight of it, I knew why. Worth spending a weekend exploring it.

Our first step onto the Valley Of Flowers in Uttarakhand made us a bit unbelievable. I mean, it was pretty tough for us to believe such an amazing place do really exist in real life. The colours all around, some of them I saw for the first time in my life. Even the flowers were also pretty much rare and not found everywhere. And yeah, the trek was really breath-taking. The beautiful views all around, the high peaks, the snows and the feeling of the trek; everything was so beautiful.
