The valley of flowers trek is something that any trekker would easily love to trek. I am a first time trekker, and I wanted to try a trek that was not so tough, yet a trek that was nice and beautiful to watch the surroundings. This trek was the best option. Firstly, I got to trek in the most nicest trails. Secondly, the trek was very much in budget. Finally, the trek was surrounded by beautiful flowers all over. If you go in the right season, then you would absolutely enjoy this trek. WOW! Amazing trek! Highly recommended for all.

A trek to the valley of flowers was something I have been looking forward to do for a long time. Finally, it happened in this July. I am a regular trekker, but Valley of Flowers was a new experience apart from every other trekking expeditions I have done. I went alone there. The most important thing I noticed here is the number of people who come to visit the valley. There were old age people also who were more energetic than the youngsters. Bikers were also there, mostly Royal Enfiled riders. I did not book through any tour operator but alone. I heard that going with a guide will help us very much to know more about the place but still I decided to go alone and I planned it for one week. Hence I visited some other places in the Himalayas. From different websites I understood the things to be taken during the tour. July was not that cold and the snow cover was comparatively less. Yet the wind was slightly cold so that I had to wear jackets throughout. Valley of Flowers was really beautiful. I have not seen so many flowers as in the pictures of it found somewhere online yet there were a lot of meadows with different flowers. The surrounding was actually soothing. I took hundreds of photos in my mobile phone. The names of flowers I saw there were unknown to me but I enjoyed the beauty very well. Since I have gone in my bike, some portions were difficult for me to cross but still I sought help from some of the people I met on the road to get the correct direction. I went to Leh also after the trip. But I got to know that many of the troupes coming to visit the Valley of Flowers seek the help of different tour organizers to make the tour easy. I am also thinking to do an extensive Himalayan trip next time with the help of some tour organizers. Also, I recommend Valley of Flowers from the bottom of my hearts to everyone.

No words to comment about the Valley of flowers. Except there was a situation when the tour was postponed the first time I booked, everything else regarding this trip was good. The group we joined was helpful. We shared water and food with each other. I found the food provided by the service providers not enough to conquer the challenges in front of us. Many of the times, we ate Maggi noodles which do not provide any nutrient. But we carried biscuits and energy bars. So, we were feeling better at the end of each day. To be true, Valley of Flowers is a must visit. During the season, we can see a lot of flowers even though the names are not familiar. Different colours will be all over the valley without showing the greenery. One of my friends who is a photographer clicked thousand photos I think. The tour organizers had one back up vehicle coming behind the trekking group. Anyway, continuously we could not climb the altitudes. We had to take several breaks in between. The seven day trip was full of energetic climbs and camping was also nice. Maggi, eggs, tea, rice and roti, dal etc were the food items provided by the service providers. At night, it was so cold and many of the team members fell sick and had to take medicines to continue the trip. Boots, jackets, warm clothes, altitude sickness preventive medicines etc should be carried any time you visit the Himalayas. And be fit before you head out to do trekking otherwise, you will be really tired. If you plan the trip according to your budget and time, Valley of Flowers trek can be the best team trip.

The trek to the valley of flowers was my first in the Himalayas although I had trekked a lot in the Western ghats. Overall it was easy as there was a well laid out path and lots of fellow trekkers of all ages although there were some minor problems in breathing and due to rain. The support provided by the organizers Hike to Himalayas was excellent. They advised on the outfits needed like shoes, ponchos and helped people shop for the missing items. The support provided by the guides was wonderful and we never felt lost or overcome by the situations. During our return from Badrinath to Joshimath, the road was blocked by landslide and we were forced to trek over a hill to reach the other side where vehicles were waiting for us. The only suggestion for improvement is to pre-allot the rooms at the hotels so that check-in formalities can be simplified. Also, the Himalaya Hotel at Ghangria may do well by cleaning the rooms in the evening. Overall, I was glad that I used their services rather than doing it on my own and it was worth it. Going through them also gave us several companions and our group was able to enjoy better together whereas going on our own would have been lonely and boring. The scenic views of the Himalayas and the valley of flowers were breathtaking. Some tourists complained that it was nothing like the unrealistic photoshopped images that you see on the internet/thrillophilia like advertisements but it is not the fault of the Himalayas !!.

This is a perfect trip for someone who is looking to spend good quality time, who wants to see a mix of Glaciers and lush green vegetation. It indeed is my guarantee that people will make a lifetime memories here. Valley of Flowers, Hemkund Sahib and Badrinath where the former one is a pristine beauty and the latter ones are holy shrines. All these with a mix of happiness, adventure and surprise filled tour makes it really a complete trip. And with the responsible and experienced guides, nice and decent hotel accommodation makes it worth each penny you pay towards the trip. People have to understand the fact that being a place where every facility cannot be available, we have to adjust with whatever is available because of lack of transportation facilities from GovindGhat to Ghangria. But still it was better than what i have expected atleast.

Valley of Flowers is in full bloom from mid August to Early September. So when I arrived Ghangharia on August I was told that the valley needs at leaset two visits interspread with a visit to Hemkund. I have been there at a very early age and the vibrant colours still ring a bell in my mind.

If you're a nature lover, then valley of flowers is one place you certainly cannot miss. The trek isn't really easy though its a short one. The paths were destroyed during the floods two years back. They have been temporarily fixed using rocks. Great experience, beautiful place, lovely company and hell lot of pictures.

If there is any place that can be called as paradise on earth then it is certainly Valley of Flowers. Nature unlimited. Fresh Air, colorful flowers, clear white water streams and rivers, result of melting glaciers, chilled river water off-course. Trails with flowers both the sides. Would definitely like to visit again sometime.

All the pains and struggles in this trek is totally worth! After the feel and experience we had in this trek, we completely forgot everything. So amazing and so appealing it was. The valley is a must visit destination at least once in a lifetime. Thanks team Thrillophilia for making this wonder happen!

Is the Valley of Flowers as beautiful as it claims to be? Yes it actually is! I discovered all this and more during the trek to the National Park. My friends and I actually tried to count the number of types of flowers, but there were just so many!

I booked this package through Thrillophilia last year but I was delayed to write something about it on the site due to several reasons. But I think, it is the right time to write about that trip which helped to escape into the pure form of nature except the daily city life. It was a great revelation for me. I booked the join a group tour package and was really excited to be a part of the team. I was communicated well by the organizers and the service providers. Hence there was no confusion regarding the tour. But still, I continued to contact the team guides and officials on a regular basis till the date of my tour arrived. Valley of Flowers offered a lot of perks in terms of sights. I went during October-November season and the cold climate was started to spread around the valley. Since the organizers have given me a proper list of things to be carried, I was prepared to prevent the cold. The road trip through Haridwar to Devprayag was quite long and finally, I was really tired. And when I got to know that the next day onward the trekking will be happening, I became really excited. If you keep your body hydrated throughout the routes, you will be able to stop getting tired to certain extent. The trek to Valley of Flowers was the most exciting. The altitude was really great and the flower bed in the valley makes our eyes glitter. Nature lovers and photographers can enjoy the beauty of this place thoroughly. People were really eager to take selfies and photographs with the flowers in the background. I was also not different. By the end of the last day, my feet were really paining and I was tired. But the images of the valley of flowers were roaming around my head. So I was feeling quite happy. If you have a group of friends to do the trekking, the adventure level will be less I guess.

I and my family planned a trip to the Valley of Flowers when I found it interesting and beautiful from different photos and websites. I got more information from one of my friends who visited the valley and other regions in the Himalayas before. With the confidence he gave me, I told my family also that we were going. With the help of that friend, I booked the tour for 6 days. The organizers helped a lot from the start to the end. Since my kids were of 12 years and 14 years, I did not want them to exert a lot while trekking so that I asked the organizers to let them travel in the car given by them. But they were happy to trek along with us. We went to the Valley of Flowers through Devprayag and Ghangria. Such a beauty. My wife liked the natural beauty. In between we found a confluence of two rivers. We spend some time watching it. A refreshing place. Valley of flowers is amazing. We were at a height of 3858 meters. The views from the top of the valley was really stunning. My family was experiencing something like that for the first time, hence I was also happy. The guides were giving us some snacks and water during the trekking time. They were really co-operative. In the group there was an old couple too. They were taking care of them very well. I am thankful to my friend for arranging this trip. We are planning to do another trip to the Himalayas when my kids get vacation.

[sales pitch]If you miss this trek, you will definitely miss a fantabulous experience in your life. I and our group were all excited about the scenic valley and once we reach the spot, we all were dumbstruck with wonder. The routes were not so challenging and can be passed easily. Trust me, the flowers in this valley speaks volume and you cannot resist yourself from taking this trek for the second time.

Overall, it as a fantastic experience and probably one of the best decisions that I joined this tour. Starting from a height of around 1874 metre, we finally reached more than 4784m and were feeling on top of the world. It is one sight which I will remember for the rest of my life. The Valley of the Flowers was the most memorable site.

Nature at its best – snow-capped mountains, lush green valleys, water streams, glaciers, roar of river flowing down through the rocks, crude treks, variety of trees and much more diversity of beautiful flowers is what I enjoyed the most during our trek to the Valley of Flowers.
