The Valley of Flowers, being a snow-clad valley almost throughout the year, is accessible to tourists only in the monsoon season, between the months of June & September. The best time to visit Valley of Flowers National Park to witness its exquisite lush green cover is in the months of July, August and September. During this time, valley has just begun to bloom, and hence not worth visiting, while the snowfall in winters makes the site not only hostile but also defeats the purpose of visiting this valley altogether. Keep in mind that entrance to the Valley is restricted to daytime - you can enter the Valley only between 7:00 AM and 2:00 PM, and you will have to leave before 5:00 PM. Overnight camping is prohibited.
