  • Trip introduction

    The Valley of Flowers trek is one of the most beloved treks in India. It takes you through the most gorgeous valley, filled with rare flowers, birds, waterfalls and streams, and misty views. You will spend six days in the fresh mountain air, walking along easy trails, and exploring the many viewpoints in the valley. This Valley of Flowers trek also includes a visit to Badrinath and to Hemkund Sahib, which is the world's highest gurudwara, at 14,200 feet. The gurudwara lies along the banks of an ice-covered lake, with snow-capped mountains all around, yet you'll see aged pilgrims taking dips in the freezing water.

    IMPORTANT: Travellers are required to carry a lunch box for packed food during the trek.

    Destination

    The Valley of Flowers lies deep in the Garhwal Himalayas, and is covered with snow for at least six months of the year. When the summer heat melts the snow, the ground soaks up all the water, and puts forth glorious blooms in the months afterwards. The best time to visit is in July and August, when the rains have begun. During this time, new flowers blossom every few days covering the slopes in flowers, and the waterfalls and streams are full.

    Destination highlights

    • Visit the iconic Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand.
    • See a variety of colourful blossoms across the slopes of the valley.
    • Cross streams and stop at waterfalls.
    • Do an easy trek that takes you deep into the natural beauty of the Himalayas.
