Valley of Flowers National Park, Uttrakhand, India

This is the picture taken in Last week of September in 2015. Flowers are all gone but the view is clear with different shade of the valley.

Valley of Flowers is a vibrant and splendid national park reposing in West Himalayas. Nestled in Uttarakhand, this alluring place is famous for its charming meadows of alpine flowers. Endowed with a diverse range of endemic flora, it is picturesque in its beauty. This lush region is also home to some rare and endangered animal species. You may spot animals like Asiatic black deer, snow leopard, musk deer, red fox, brown bear and blue sheep. High in the lofty Himalayas of the Garhwal region sprawls this enchanting valley. Legends believe it to be the place from where Hanuman had collected the Sanjeevani buti for curing Lakshmana. This place has floral pastures, running streams and beautiful backdrop of the mountains.

VALLEY OF FLOWERS IS LOCATED 300 KMS NORTH OF RISHIKESH, NEAR BADRINATH

Pushpawati river bed is 6 kilometers in the Valley of Flowers. You can see the pink shade on the river bed . This pink shade is due to a colony of a beautiful flower Epilobium Latifolium or we can call it River Beauty also.

It’s a core zone of Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve. A colossal expanse of 87.5 sq kms and myriad alpine flowers makes this place a colorful paradise. Perched at an altitude of 3658 mts above sea level, Bhyundar Valley is the home to this surreal place. Historically, the beauty of the place was unknown to world until in 1931, three British mountaineers came here. They lost their way and happened to discover this alluring valley and named it Valley of Flowers. Later in the year 1939, Joan Margaret Legge, a botanist arrived here to study flowers. She was deputed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Krew but she lost her life by slipping from the rocky terrain. Her sister later came here and erected a memorial near the spot.

Valley of Flowers remains covered with a thick blanket of snow during the winter season. It is in full bloom during July, August and September. This is the best time to explore the splendor of this magnificent place. The aqua waters of Pushpawati River bifurcates the valley into two parts. Dew drops of flowers, the rhythmic sound of flowing water and the romantic breeze can be enjoyed by the visitors during the period of July to September.

    I have gone to Valley of Flowers and Hemkund sahib just few days back. Although i was not able see the flowers because of the off season, but the trekking was amazing. So close to the nature, all the ice covered mountains, waterfalls, the sound of water , all the different plants and their history aside. Taste different kinds of berries (only those which were supposed to be eaten). The beauty of Valley of Flowers is the path by which we go. We can feel everything, the running water, smell of different plants and soil and look over the beautiful sky and mountain. Next time i will be going in on season.

    I’m confused. I’ve read this section several times along with Trip Advisor and some other commercial websites. Most are saying that the Valley of Flowers will be closed this year but that Hem Kund is open. One site suggests that it may be possible to walk about 1km inside that Valley of Flowers.

    I was hoping to visit Valley of Flowers in the last week of July but will not do si if I can only see 1 km inside the park.

    Do you have any updated information or suggestions as to where I might find more recent reports? Thank you.

    Hi Devkant

    Sorry to bother you..But I have a query for or you can say an information for you…

    I have come to know that due to cloud burst on night of July 1-2 at Lambagar, the road connectivity between Govindghat- Badrinath has washed away. This is the same site where 3Km. road was totally vanished last year due to heavy floods. Although Border Road Organization have started work on the site but it will take atleast 45 days for completing the road, that to if weather permits.

    Further Director, Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve under which jurisdiction
    Valley Of Flowers falls have stopped all construction work in the entire area due to heavy rains and officially announced not to open Valley for tourist this season.

    Ïs this information true as I had a plan to go for Valley of Flowers trip on August 7, 2014 and was anxiously waiting for it.

    Since I found your website and your guidance very helpful, I thought of consulting you. Kindly look into it..

      I have been to Valley of Flowers in October 2013, the Valley of Flowers is totally intact except at some points the trek was damaged. Lot of reputed news sites have reported wrongly about the Valley of Flowers.
      Valley of Flowers is not yet open and it is highly possible that it will not be open by the June 25th also.
      Please read Will Valley of Flowers open in 2014? When does Valley of Flowers open ?.
      If you want I can arrange for hotels.

    Hi,
    we are couple. My wife is very much intrested to visit the place. She is been asking for me from long time. So, I decided to take her to this time, if everything goes well we are planning to visit in August. My priority question is, is it safe for couple to travel as I don’t want to take any chance with my wife’s safety, this was my main reason to delay the tour. As I now come across your website, I feel it will be fine to take her to her dream place. Please let me know is it safe. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Devkant, First of all, Thanks to make this wonderful website full of valuable information, pictures and your vision towards safeguarding the nature with various cautious and alarming inputs. I, Purushottam Oke, am from Pune and a big nature lover. This is one of the places along with Ladakh that is still on top of my must visit places list. I am sure I do find space this year to fulfill my dream to visit the valley atleast once in my lifetime. Considering all the articles published about Valley of Flowers and feedback seen about the best visit time, I hope this comes amongst the best period to visit the Valley of Flowers.

    Hi Devkant

    Thank you so much for the information. As we are planning to make d trip by own, I need some more information from you.

    Will we be able to catch a bus from Govindghat to Badrinath if we start from Ghangaria on same day on early morning.

    Actually I want to know the time of last bus depart from Govindghat to Badrinath.

    If we want to hire a car for Badrinath from Govindghat will be the cost for that.

    Thanking You

      Hello Mam,
      You can manage the trip on your own but they are few points that you need to consider…
      1. Public transport is not available from Govindghat to Badrinath.
      2. You can take a cab from Govindghat to Badrinath. It will be charging you around Rs. 2500.

      Char Dham is generally not recommended along with Valley of Flowers. Best season for Valley of Flowers is monsoon season and monsoon is not a good season for char Dham.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    I wanted to do a short trip in India from Oman. The Valley of Flowers seemed like an interesting take on India besides the typical tourist things.
    What is the cost? How long will the trek last? Are they fat people that go on this trip? I am 104 KG or 230lbs, but I have gone hiking while here in Oman. What are some things that I will need for a mid-July trek?
    At this stage I prefer to be contacted via email.

    Thanks,
    Tieshainfo

    • Avatar for Devkant Sangwan Devkant Sangwan says:

      Hi,
      Yes fat people can come for trek to Valley of Flowers, you should have good stamina. You can get a pony between Govindghat and Ghangaira and between Ghangaria and Hemkund Sahib. This will make your trip easier.

    Hello, Dear Explorer, Devkant Sangwan,
    While searching Valley of Flowers I found your page & I must admit till date regarding Valley of Flowers I haven’t seen such detailed information anywhere else. Congratulations for such a wonderful site. Now, I want to know what are the best dates to visit the valley from July last week to August first week or else what dates you recommend to visit within these two months. Is it also possible to join you from Govindghat & have a customized trip along with you, because I want to visit The Valley 3 consecutive days & like to stay a night in Hemkund Shahib. Going with my itinerary, I have also included Auli & Badrinath where there is a beautiful waterfall to see. Please share me the costs & other necessary information. It will be kind & helpful enough if you personally give me your valuable suggestion as I am considering you in high esteem more of a Co Explorer Friend who simply love & respect Mother Nature,Looking forward Friend for your reply, Stay happy & healthy, God bless you.

      Thanks dear for your compliments. Overnight stay is not possible as there is no hotel at Hemkund Sahib. Generally no tourist stay at Hemkund Sahib. Still we may camp somewhere near to Hemkund Sahib. But I have never done it. You will see lot of waterfalls even in the Valley of Flowers. If possible call me or send me your phone number.
