Valley of flowers, discovered in 1931 is a World Heritage Site for its wild untamed blooms surrounded by white peaks.
At the meeting point of the Himalayan ranges, Zanskar and Western and Eastern Himalayas, the valley of flowers discovered by Mountaineer Frank S Smith in 1931 has been declared a world heritage site for its wild untamed blooms surrounded by white peaks. Famous for its exotic varieties of medicinal herbs, it is also believed that Hanuman brought Sanjivani to the ailing Lakshmana from the valley of flowers. A perfect place to laze around the umpteen number of Himalayan water-falls, streams and paddocks and let the beauty of the place sink in.
The area does not offer many choices in food and hence it is best to pack some food for your trip here or make personal arrangements. Some hotels and lodges nearby might serve typical Indian food.
Visitors need to find accommodation in Ghangari only as staying back in not allowed in neither Valley of Flowers nor Hemkund Sahib.
Walking is the only option here.
Best Place in uttrakhand. Scene changes in every 10 minutes. Its 16 km trek from govind ghat. 13 km ghagria village than 3 km from there.

The Valley Of Flowers Trek is on. Will it be very difficult for me considering that I've never trekked before?
