Valley of Flowers Trek 

High in the mountains of Uttarakhand lies an alpine meadow that is best known for being a paradise on earth. Over 600 varieties of flowering plants bloom to their fullest in the rains, carpeting the valley in colourful hues as far as the eye can see. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Valley of Flowers National Park is spread across 87 sq. km, and is protected by the majestic Zanskar Range. It serves as the habitat for several rare and endangered animals including the Asiatic black bear, musk deer, red fox and snow leopard.

You can couple this trek with an arduous climb to the nearby Hemkund Sahib - one of the worlds highest gurudwaras housed in an alpine lake located 14300 feet above sea level.

A valley of panoramic flowers is located 36 km from Joshimath on Badrinath Marg. Located at an elevation of 3658 to 3962 meters above sea level, the Valley of Flowers spread over an area of about 20 square kilometers is surrounded by mountain ranges.

Many water streams from the Valley of Flowers mountain ranges fall into the Pushpavati river. One of these streams has been named Priyadarshini Dhara in the memory of Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Around this Priyadarshini stream, the most beautiful variety of flowers and rare brahmamal are visible.
