Valley of Flowers National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The valley is so beautiful and charming. This trek starts from Pulna. 10 kms trek from Pulna to Ghangaria. Then another 4kms from Ghangaria to the valley. The difficulty level of the trek is moderate. Always remember to stay hydrated. You have to be working out a little bit daily to complete the trek successfully. Because the view is breathtaking...not just the top view when you reach the valley...but also the trekking path... There are a lot of streams on the way from where you can fill your bottles with water. Not to worry, the streams are pure. And when you reach the top, make sure you visit Legge's grave too(there's a story behind it). The view from that point is also mind blowing. Remember to not pluck any flowers. Love nature and preserve it❤️❤️❤️
PS: You can find lichens during the trek. If you find lichens(symbiotic relationship between fungus and algae/cyanobacteria) in an area, it indicates that the area is pollution free and healthy.

Valley of flowers is approximately 12000+ feet above sea level, and home to more than 600 species of flowers!

As described by UNESCO:
Internationally important on account of its diverse alpine flora. An exceptionally beautiful high-altitude Himalayan landscape, with outstanding biodiversity.

It takes a 14 hour car drive, an overnight stay, a 4-6 hour trek, an overnight stay and a 4 hour trek to reach Valley of Flowers.

Another possibility is to visit Hemkund Sahib - highest Gurudwara in the world !
Stay in Ghangaria and take rest for 1 day before Hemkund Sahib.

This is an experience from August 2017

Phoolo ke Vaadi or VOF is heaven on Earth and like one needs to gather good karma to ascend to heaven one needs to trek on difficult terrain to reach here.
Your trekking starts from the small hamlet of Govindghat to Ghangria(10 km).Of course you have a choice of chopper,mule,palki or pithu .
The town of Ghangaria is base for trek to VOF or Hemkund sahib.In the small town of Ghangaria you can hire /buy all your needs for the trek but not of superior quality so better come prepared.
VOF can be accessed through hiking,palki or pithi. Mules are not allowed. There is almost 1.5 km of uphill neverending sort of trekking.But the views all around are mind-blowing.One is so full of gratitude to have the privlage of coming to this place.Its only after this difficult trek that the valleuy of flower will satrt although fkowers like birds know nothing about boundaries so you will see then much befre rather from Ghangaria itself.
VOF is open from June to August and you will see different flowers in different months.
You need to start descending before 1 pm to avoid getting stuck up in cold mountains.

Can you do it ?
Yes, even if you exercise for few minutes in preparation for this trek,it will help. People around you,your guide will encourage you. Pithu are available halfway too so if you feel you can't walk then hire them.
It is once in life time experience and make sure you experience it.

" Valley of Flowers" entrance gate opens at 0700 hrs and closes at 1200 hrs.The Ticket pass that costs Rs 150 is valid for 3 day's. We were a group of 5 trekkers who had joined "THE SEARCHING SOULS" trek company for this trek to the "VALLEY OF FLOWERS".At the ticket issuing booth we had to hand over our " Aadhar card" for registration .Finally after the registration formalities we finally entered the National Park of " Valley of Flowers". After a short walk along rough stones we heard the thundering roar of the gushing water of the Pushpawati River.Came across the first flower .The view of the mountains and the sound of the gushing Pushpawati river was a out of the world feeling. As we reached the summit of the mountain the view of the melting glaciers was the aphrodisiac that kept me walking.All along our walk could hear the gushing water of the stream flowing alongside the mountain.Came across numerous trekkers and realized at age 62 I was the eldest among the trekkers today.Finally after climbing partially towards the summit it was again a downhill walk into the valley which later turned into a slightly zig-zag up down walk.We finally reached the "VALLEY OF FLOWERS" nestled in the Pushpawati river valley which to my disappointment was just a green meadow akin to a beautiful manicured lawn and not a meadow of a array of exotic flowers as shown in pictures in different magazines or travelogue blogs. A ant-iclimax .The "Valley of Flowers" situated between altitudes of 3352 m(10,997 ft) and 3658 m( 12,000ft) above sea level lies completely in the temperate Alpine zone and was officially accidentally discovered in 1931by three Britisher mountaineers Mr Frank.S.Smythe, Mr Eric.Shipton and Mr R.L.Holdsworth. While returning from a successful expedition to Mt Kamet they had lost their way and walked into this valley of flowers.Seems we were at the right place at the wrong time and the mass blooming of flowers was yet to begin with the peak months being August/ September which is also heavy monsoon season in this locale of the Garhwal mountains.The "Valley of Flowers" has a total area of 87 Sq Km with a length of approximately 8 Km and width of 2 Km .Over 650 different species of flowers have been tabulated in the "Valley of Flowers" over various months of the Monsoon season. Rest of the months during winter the valley lies in a carpet of snow and hence closed to tourism. The thrill was in the trek and admiring nature and at last one of my ambitions of trekking in the Himalaya's was fulfilled.

How to Reach: Dehradun/Haridwar/Rishikesh to Govindghat via Joshimath, by
road. The distance is around 300 km and takes around 10-12 hours
depending on road and traffic conditions. One can take night halt at
Joshimath or Govindghat. From Govindghat to Pulna village is nearly 5
km and shared sumo is available which costs Rs. 200 per head or
Rs.500/600 for full vehicle. From Pulna village it is around 10 km on foot
or one can take horse ride which costs between Rs. 1500 to Rs. 1800
per person or one can go by pitthu (man carrying you on back).
Depending on the mode of Travel it takes 2 hours to six hours. The last
4 and half kilometer is too steep. So one need to be mentally prepared
for the same and the road is paved with stone which tends to slip
during rain. Then you reach Ghangria. Night halt at Ghangria. From
Ghangria one can leave in the morning for Valley of flowers ( Phoolon
Ki Ghati). The gate opens at 7 in the morning and the entry fee is Rs.
150 per head. This entry pass is valid for three days. Thus one can
enter the park three consecutive days by buying one pass of Rs.150.
From the gate the valley is 3 km trek and once again it is a steep trek.

Altitude : Govindghat is at 6000 feet, Ghangria is at 10000 feet and valley of
flowers is at around 12000 feet and Hemkund Shahib is at 15000 feet.
Valley of flowers is over two and half kilometer spread.

Time to Visit: The best time to visit valley of flowers is in the month of July. Though it
will be raining but one can get to see the valley at its best. From mid
August the flowers will start dropping and by September middle, it will
be all over.

What to carry: As the time to visit is peak monsoon, so one must have a good rain
coat, a good trekking shoe, cap rather a hat will be better, sunscreen
lotion is must otherwise skin will burn due to strong UV rays. One should
preferably carry mosquito/insect repellent cream as all hotels are
infested with insects. Ghangria is normally warm during day time but
after evening the temperature starts falling rapidly. So one should
carry warm cloths accordingly. Day temperature hovers around 12-
18/19 but the night temperature goes down to even 5/6 degree
centigrade.

Mobile Connection: Only Jio has a mobile tower, rest no other service provider has
any tower. Hence except Jio and on rare occasion one can get Airtel
connectivity. Rest no other mobile network is available there. Secondly,
only two/three hotels provide Wi-Fi connection, rest majority of the
hotels do not provide Wi-Fi facility.

Guide: Valley of flowers has over 520 types of plants and of those nearly 500
are flowering plants. So it is always advisable to have a proper good
guide who knows the flowers and its characteristics. Though there are
many but hardly few who are from Ghangria. I was lucky to come
across two such local guides who are exceptionally good in their
knowledge and equally good companion. One is Eshwar
(+91 9458927294) and the other one is Rupesh (+91 7579000228).

The Valley: If one wants to see maximum no of flowers then one day is not
enough. In any way the entry-pass allows one to enter three
consecutive days inside the valley. Though it may be physically
strenuous to trek three days continuously but it can be cherishing
experience if one can do. I could do two days. Secondly, the more one
goes higher altitude from valley one can see more rare flowers. The
higher the altitude the more beautiful and rare flowers. Like
Bramhakamal and Blue Poppy can be seen more, near Hemkund
Shahib. Kunth Khal which is in the range of 3700 – 4500 mtr, has to be
trekked further from Valley of Flowers. The flowers which can be seen
in Kunth Khal are not available in the valley nor around Hemkund
Shahib. So if anyone really wants to enjoy and feel the beauty of this
heaven in earth then one must go between mid July to first week of
August and spend 7/8 days based at Ghangria and trek different
routes to explore the entire valley in totality. But I must say, every
nature lover must go once in his life to see this beautiful gift of mother
nature to India. Please don’t miss it.

Rains had taken a break and hence the trek was relatively easy for the first 5–6 kms. We did finally reach our destination Ghangria at 7:30pm which was our base camp. Ghangaria is the last human habitation in Bhyundar Valley, and a base camp to visit Hemkund and the Valley of Flowers. However, it remains snowbound during winters, and remains accessible only between the months of May and September. The beds in the tent (Swiss tent style) was comfortable and had an attached bath with running water. We were given hot soup, tea and hot water in a bucket to get fresh. The camp was very cozy, we had 2 blankets to keep us warm with temperatures hovering around 5 degrees centigrade with the rain. After having a nice dinner we hit the bed and were fast asleep dreaming about what’s in store for the next day.

It was a bit chilly and there was just a bit of drizzle that wasn’t too bothersome. We learnt how to share a bucket of hot water while we got ready for our trek to Valley of flowers which is around 6 kms one way from our camp. We left after having breakfast and getting packed lunch. We were accompanied by Pankaj who was normal by now. Pradeep was still fast asleep as we started the trek at around 8 am. The first stop was the small town of Ganghria where there were many places to stay, places to eat and purchase some emergency supplies.

We continued our trek past the town and slowly started climbing as we passed the forest check-post where we had to pay entry fees. The Valley of Flowers is a bouquet of nature peacefully snuggled in the West Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. The trek of Valley of flowers goes through dense forests, along with Pushpawati river and can be reached by crossing many bridges, glaciers and waterfalls on the way. The trek here would be considered a medium trek since there is some climb but the landscape keeps changing and every 10 minutes you see something more fascinating that the next. We did reach the spot from where the entire valley could be seen around 4 hours after we started the hike. Though the flowers were a bit less, the valley looked very majestic with its lush green abundant land, mountains and numerous waterfalls. We had the packed lunch at the top, spent an hour more just admiring the scene and then decided to trek back. The valley is located at around 3600 meters above sea level but we didn’t find it too difficult to breathe while walking. The weather was perfect.

Although categorised as a ‘moderate’ trek, the trek to the Valley of Flowers (and Hemkund Sahib, which is on the same route) is reasonably steep and difficult in parts. Having said that, it is worth exploring Valley of Flowers, Mana & Badrinath.

Valley of Flowers. The very phrase conjures up images of undulating meadows, carpeted with flowers of different colours and hues, going up the side of a gentle mountain. Once you get to THE Valley of Flowers, it’s not exactly that! Firstly, getting there is a 3.5Km trek from Ghangaria through some stunningly beautiful ruggedly wooded mountains. You cross over from one mountain face to the other. Finally, you exit from a heavily wooded thicket to emerge into the valley. And yes, it is carpeted with flowers, making exploring Valley of Flowers an immensely joyful experience.

You have to see the valley to believe it. It’s not just a meadow. It is hectare upon hectare of heart – achingly beautiful flora. The valley is stretched over mountains, dotted with gurgling streams and even a glacier!

Amazingly, once we got INTO the Valley of Flowers, it wasn’t cold. On the contrary, with the protection that the surrounding mountains offered, it was quite pleasant. So much so, that all the time we were exploring the Valley of Flowers, we’d removed our jackets altogether.

I haven’t ever come across such a surfeit of orchids. As far as the eye could see, they stretched away creating an unbelievable carpet of riotous colour. It was like something out of a fantasy, too beautiful to be real! To this day, I don’t know which emotion is stronger. Was it the joy that I could see something so magnificent in my life? Or the nagging sadness that nothing one sees from hereon can ever live up to this?!
