    Hello Devkant,
    We seriously considering a trip/trek to Valley of Flowers in early June as a family of adults. We are particular about dates and will be starting from Delhi. It is possible to have this trip start on June 2 and be back to Delhi by June 7 or 8th?
    If possible, please suggest us the itinerary and associated costs.
    Thanks a lot.

      Yes it is very much possible but I think June first week would not be the best time to visit the valley. You can visit our Best Time to Visit Valley of Flowers page for more info. You can call me for more information. My phone numbers are given on every page of the website.
