Overview

The Valley of flowers is a must do trek for all. It is situated in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. At a colossal expanse of 87 sq. km. Blessed with innumerable flowers patches adds majesty to the mountains. When the sun shines hot on this field, thousands of flowers bloom here The Valley was also declared as a national park in 1982. This valley was unknown till three British mountaineers discovered it.  Frank Smythe with Eric Shipton and R.L. Holdsworth first discovered this place. In 1931, they wanted to scale a peak in Garhwal called Kamet. While returning after successfully completing the mission they took the western pass and lost their way and reached this valley. Fascinating by the beauty of the place, they dubbed it as the ‘Valley of Flowers’.

Day 01: Drive from Haridwar to Govindghat / Pandukeshwar.

We begin the journey from Haridwar in a reserved jeep/tempo traveller. No doubt, the panoramic view of the Himalayas is going to be enchanting for the next few days, but still you can have a last look at the plains of Rishikesh. We pass through the lush green mountains and deep down the slopes the Alaknanda river follows us all the way. We reach Govindghat by evening and halt for the night in a guest house and gear up for the next day. 

Day 02: Trek from Govindghat / Pandukeshwar to Ghangaria

On a chilly morning we leave the comfort of Govindghat and trek to Ghangharia. We begin our gradual ascent towards Ghangharia which is the base for VOF and Hemkund and Hemkund Sahib. As we climb up, the river Lakshman Ganga, flows down below and comes closer to the level at which it flows. After steep climb, reaching Ghangaria feels like an achievement. After arrival at Ghangaria, before you retire for the night, gorge in some special dinner at the guest house.

Day 03: Trek from Ghangaria to Valley of Flowers

We start the trail and pass gently through a coniferous forest, before descending to a bridge, climbing up a rocky trail, with the forest behind us, the sight of the first flowers begin to appear.The valley is beautiful, and there are meadows of flowers as if it’s a dream locale. Himalayan Balsam, is the most predominant flower of the valley and a thick blanket of these flowers can be seen everywhere. After viewing the God’s natural beauty we start descending to Ghangaria. We spend the night in a guest house at Ghangaria.

Day 04: Trek from Ghangaria to Hemkund Sahib

Today's climb to Hemkund Sahib is steep at places and will take about 3 - 4 hrs. Hemkund Sahib is a popular Sikh Shrine built next to the beautiful lake. The lake is surrounded by wild flowers with Brahmkamal being the most popular. Pilgrims take a dip in the freezing cold waters of the lake, not an easy task. The hot tea served in the Gurudwara (shrine) is divine to say the least. We will also visit the Laxman mandir next to the Gurudwara. Towards late afternoon head back to Ghangria. Overnight stay in Guest house.

Day 05: Trek from Ghangaria to Govindghat / 

Next day in the morning, we start our downhill trek, back to Govindghat. The climb down is much easier. If at all you arrive at Govindghat on time, then you may visit Badrinath temple(at an extra cost) and come back to the guest house by evening. We would advise you to check the weather and road condition before heading to Badrinath. Overnight stay in Guest house.



Day 06: Drive from Govindghat / Pandukeshwar to Haridwar.

Leave from Govindghat hotel by early morning for your return journey. Arrive at Haridwar by evening and say goodbye to your trek mates. Valley of flower trek ends here.

Take back unbelievable memories of the picturesque valley and admire the different colors and fragrances spread by the bloom of the flowers.
