    had been to VOF in aug 12 with some other group, but now i feel it should be done by a local person who has studied this place before we could see only 50% of the flowers without its knowledge, i feel i should visit this year with you, hope to plan acco and book at an earliest.

      Hello Sudhir Sheth ji,

      Yes I remember you met me on the trip. Your comment is a lesson to those who do not plan well and go to this wonderland. But you are lucky that you at least know what you have missed. Most of the guys coming to the valley are happy even after not seeing the real beauty because they does not know what they have missed.
