Trek Overview

Blessed with the extraordinary and exquisite Himalayan flora, the Valley of Flowers is a beautiful bouquet of nature, tranquilly snuggled in the West Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. The trek to valley of flowers passes through thick forests, glaciers, and waterfalls on the way, along with Pushpawati River. Until 1931, the presence of this awe-inspiring valley was unknown to the world. Three British mountaineers Frank S. Smythe, Eric Shipton, and R.L. Holdsworth while returning from an outstanding expedition of Mt. Kamet stumbled upon this fascinating valley full with blooming flowers. Captivated by the astonishing beauty of this place, they named it as the ‘Valley of Flowers’. Later on, Frank S. Smythe also wrote a book about this valley with the same title.
