What’s the Route from Rishikesh to Valley of Flowers?

Posted By : Team/ 447 0

Since Rishikesh is the nearest railway station, most trekkers prefer to plan a visit from Rishikesh to Valley of Flowers. Set at a height of 3,658 metres, Valley of Flowers is surrounded by snowy mountains, which keep the valley cut off during winter season due to a thick blanket of snow. The backdrop of white, snow clad glaciers makes the brightly coloured flowers look even more scenic. An amazing sight with a contrasting backdrop takes your breath away instantly.

 

It won’t be wrong to say that Valley of Flowers is a surreal paradise, or probably a fairyland, completely covered by bright alpine flowers throughout the summer season. Hundreds of trekkers visit this beautiful destination every year. The 18 km trek starts from Govindghat, which is well-connected to Haridwar, Dehradun and Rishikesh via road.
