About

The Valley of flowers, recognized as a National Park, is located in Chamoli, Uttarakhand. Situated around 16 km from Govindghat, the last motorable road, this valley of flowers is spread over 87 sq km. Visitors can find various types of flora, some of them are on the verge of extinction.

Nestled amidst lush green mountains and sprawling meadows, the valley offers an ethereal and enchanting view. Additionally, visitors may spot some wild species, including the snow leopard, black bear, blue sheep, Himalayan monal, flying squirrel and many more. However, entry of such wild animals into this valley is prohibited.

The valley remained undiscovered until 1931, when three British mountaineers unearthed this paradise after losing their way. Later, it gained recognition as a National Park by the Indian government, and in 2002, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. The park remains open for six months a year, from May to October, but visitors throng the place during July to September when various species bloom, especially Saussurea Obvallata (known as Brahma Kamal).

To reach the site, visitors need to trek a distance of 13 km from Govindghat to Ghangaria and another 4 km trek from Ghangaria to Valley of flowers. Along the way, tourists may encounter waterfalls, wild rivers and breathtaking views of the Himalayas.
