A easy trek for nature lovers and people who like to hike
The beautiful Valley of Flowers at an altitude of 3300 m to 3650 m, is a paradise for nature lovers and those interested in flowers. It starts about 6 km from the village of Bhuindhar and covers an area of about 87 km². The valley is exceptionally rich in flowers and has the largest collection of wildflower species in India. The pushpawati river flows through the green valley. The valley blooms with exotic flowers from June, July to early September. There are about 520 species of flowering plants, and the area was declared a national park in 1982. Animals such as Himalayan black bears, musk deer, brown bears, bharal and a rich variety of birds and butterflies can be found in this national park. Here is also the holy Sikh shrine, which we will also visit.
This trek is ideal in the monsoon season from July to September, when the entire valley is in bloom. It is a easy trek in the Himalayan region, where we spend three nights in Ghangaria at the hotel and from here we do star-shaped day hikes.

This tour is not a trek in the true sense of the word with camping in tents, but rather a 6 days trip with star-shaped day hikes and overnight stays in the same hotel for three nights.
Ideal for those who are not camping fans but still want to enjoy the Himalayas in the form of hikes.
Also one of the few treks that is ideal in the monsoon season. That’s why a hotel accommodation makes sense. So you don’t have to camp in the rain.
