Posted By : Team/ 410 0

One of the most beautiful and mesmerizing treks, Valley of Flowers is set at a height of 12,000 feet above sea level. Most trekkers prefer to club Hemkund Sahib Valley of Flowers treks. If you club these treks, you’re not only able to visit the sacred religious site, but also able to see hundreds of species of alpine flowers blooming in the valley.

Both Hemkund and Valley of Flowers remain open between May and September. From October to May, these destinations are cut-off from other parts of Uttarakhand due to heavy snowfall. In 1982, Valley of Flowers was declared a National Park, and since then it has been one of the most visited trekking destinations in the country. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
