Tour Detail

Valley of flowers & Hemkund Sahib combined Trek.- A Colorful Rendezvous with Nature.

Highlights – Meadows of endemic alpine flowers and the variety of flora. Almost 300 species of wild flowers bloom here unhindered by mankind. The prominent species are Brahma Kamal, Blue Poppy, Cobra Lily Anemone, Geranium, Marsh Marigold & Frenula. Also the valley has to offer much more than flowers. There are waterfalls, glaciers, towering mountains, big rivers and quaint villages. And Hemkunt Sahib, a Sikh place of worship and pilgrimage site with its setting of a glacial lake surrounded by seven mountain peaks.

The Valley Of Flowers covers only 8,950 hectares, is encircled by snow capped peaks from three sides and nestled in expanse of Gori peak and The Bhyundar Khal (Pass), at the juncture of The Great Himalayan Range and the tail of Zaskar Range from the west. In 1931 Frank visited here the sublime beauty and a myriad collection of wild flowers and eventually inspired to write a book ‘Smyth a mountaineer, botanist and a great nature enthusiast, who accidently fumbled down into this wonder land while coming from his successful Kamet expedition. He found dumb himself by the sheer beauty of it’.

Before the exploration and popularization of it the local people were frequently visiting the valley for their daily need of precious medicinal herbs and other life supporting elements. In September 1982 the Government of India declared it as national park to preserve its precious flora and fauna because some of the species were found endangered. In July 2005 VOKF figured in the list of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.

This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. The gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park to the east.10% DISCOUNT (if booked 90 days in advance with full payment) per person on Twin Sharing basis subject to minimum 2 pax travelling together.
