This was my first treking experience and I enjoyed it fully. Its been year now but still can’t forget the week we have spent in Himalayas, Hemkund and the Valley of Flowers .
It was not a well planned trip but sometimes unplanned trips are the most unforgetable ones. Me and friends enjoyed it a lot.
The view is beyond words. Flowers all around with mighty glaciers surrounding. Super amazing views , had our packed lunch sitting in the center of flower beds , truly an unforgettable experience
One should visit Valley of Flower Trek to enjoy never had before kind of experience

We actually went for trekking in the Hemkund Sahib Trek but eventually on the recommendation of some fellow trekkers we decided to make a visit to the flower of valley also. While visiting the valley of flowers i was quite excited to see the different flowers, we even captured photos in my camera. Our hemkund sahib trekking was also commendable, since we got to see different historical points having enchanting views. The valley of flowers added an extra amount of value in the trekking expedition.

“I went to Valley of flowers with Aahvan. We went to the deeper parts of valley of flowers . It was well managed trip and people managing it have love for the valley. The long but amazing trek to Valley of Flowers is very colorful.
First you begin with blue waters of Haridwar and Govindghat and see the rich greenery along the way. The snow white mountains and rainbow colored flowers in the valley completes the trip to perfection. Very interesting locations and some have rich historic background. I just loved the trekking part. The crew was very helpful and gave lots of information which you might miss if you go alone.”

The UNESCO recognized world heritage centre is the loved point of many nature lovers. The valley of flowers ia not like any small park but it is a large flower national park of the country. Since its inception in 1937 it has received many recognition for the facilities of tourists there are many low budet hotels offering good service accomodation. Moreover it is an ideal family stay.
