The valley of flowers of uttrakhand is spread in an area of 87.5 sq. kms , so large covering area and crowded by thousands of different flowers. People consider uttrakhand for its himalayan mountains but actual appreciation should be given to these sites. It is absolute heaven and athe land of paradise for nature lovers. The valley is surrounded by mighty mountains and is well maintained by authorities. It will be great to spend a day staring at the flowers, buds and butterflies.

    Valley of flowers is a world famous ltourists destination and is crowded by foreigner and domestic tourists. Especially during the beginning of monsoon when almost all the flowers boom, it appears as a complete heaven. Different flower species each of different colors looks awesome. Not only flowers, there are butterflies all around adds extra charm to the valley. On this site the book called valley pf flowers has been written by its discoverer Frank smith. Awesome place.

    we were out in a six day trekking trip in the mountains of Rishikesh and got an opportunity to discover the valley of flowers in our trip, qhich made the trip memorable. Starting from the Rishikesh mountains we visited joshimath and crossed the Devprayag which is where the Bhagirathi and alaknanda rivers meet and ganga starts its journey . it was an amazing feeling for me to see ganga being originated.. we stayed in a hotel where we were informed about the valley of flowers. Then we were excited to see the valley and indeed it is super gorgeous. Every trekker who is trekking in uttrakhand must arrange some time to see this valley of flowers.

    This valley has perhaps all colors,of the world. bottom,is green and top is colorful. This enchanting beauty is home to thousands of flowers new and old, local and wild all types. Ghanvria is the point where the valley is situated and apart from valley there are small streams and waterfalls which will make you feel like a movie location. The valley of flowers is so well maintained that you will not find any sort of dirt in the entire premise. Moreover it is not possible to explore the entire area by walking. Flowers you see are some kind of herbs also having medicinal values. Incredible place to visit.

    Valley of flowers trek is a very renowned tourist destination covering a large collection of flowers of all kinds. Some flowers are even wild and very rarely found. People from all over the world and from all generations come to see this awesome location. There is a Rabtan peak from where the entire peak looks awesome, the site is such well maintained that it becomes the best one day holiday destination for the families. And the best time to explore the valley would be during the month of July & August since that time alot of flowers bloom and it just looks wonderful.

    Well unless you area nature lover, i wont recommend you this site beacuse the valley is speard over a large area which might make you feel bored or something so better to focus on other parts of the region. In ghangaria where the valley is located, there is also a valley called Bhyundar valley and next to it is Laxman Ganga River. There are two beautiful villages to explore like the villages Pulna and Bhyundar . The valley of flowers appears as a large flower plantaion but indeed looks adorable.

We were quite delighted to be a part of this awesome destination and hope to visit the site soon.

    On our trip we spent time on many tourist destination but i loved being in the valley of flowers and the hemkund saheb. we had a moderate trekking from rishikesh to ghangaria and the the spectacular mountains kept us going further. On other side hemkund saheb have its own importance because in the Sikh holy book. The small waterfalls are also there, where you can spend some time. In Hemkund sahib there is a small lake surrounded by seven snow covered mountains looking even more beautiful.
