They amalgamate together and is called as Alaknanada. Meeting Bhagirathi at Dev Prayag, its journey is completed.

It’s DevPrayag. The left side is River Bhagirathi which comes from Gangotri. The other is Alaknanda coming from Badrinath.
Alaknanda glides towards DevPrayag and blends with River Bhagirathi to give us the Pious Ganga. Ganga symbolizes devotion and faith.

The trek to Valley of Flowers begins at Haridwar, the holy city. You will be picked from one point in a convenient conveyance. We will drive towards our starting point which is Govind Ghat. It’s a full day ride alongside river Alaknanda. There may be prospects to see Rudrprayag and Devprayag along the way. It depends on the punctuality of the group and the feasibility of time.

Alaknanda further flows down to DevPrayag and meets River Bhagirathi to form river Ganga.

Along the journey are beautiful sights of the emerald rivers. Lunch is arranged on the way and we finally reach Govind Ghat by evening. Positioned at the bank of River Alaknanada, Govind Ghat is the embarking point of the trek. Relish the splendid scenes around and relax for the journey next morning.

    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.

      Hello Ajay,
      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.
