Wao What a view it was!!!!! Can you imagine millions of species of flowers such as saxifrags, sediams, lilies, poppy, calendular, daisies, geranium, zinnia and petunia all at one place!!! sounds exciting right??? Thats exactly hw i felt when i first heared about the place, i was very desperate to make a visit there. we went there with my best friend,clicked hundreds of photos, wao it was so nice to be there. in could feel the aroma of the enchanting place, its wonderful. The place is surrounded by the Himalayas mountains, like someone is trying to protect those beautiful flowers. Its the most attractive place i had ever seen.
