Valley Of Flowers Trek – Renok Adventures

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 448 72

The snow on the Himalayas adds majesty to the mountains and the innumerable flower patches of vivid colors add to its beauty. When the sun shines hot on this field, thousands of flowers bloom here. This valley was unknown till a British mountaineer Frank Smythe first discovered this place. In 1931,  Smythe wanted to scale a peak in Garhwal called Kamet. While returning after successfully completing his mission he took the western pass and lost his way and reached this valley after many difficulties. Thus, was born the Valley Of Flowers Trek.

    The plan for Day 1 seems a bit unclear to me.

    “Arrive at Joshimath by the evening and check into a hotel. Dinner & overnight stay. Get a good night’s sleep as tomorrow our Valley Of Flowers trek starts. We will also try and reach Govindghat and stay in Hotel Bhagat Govindghat or similar to start the valley of flowers trek next morning.”

    So, either the group checks into a hotel in Joshimath, or drive a bit ahead to Govindghat? What is the distance between the two?

    Also, what is the elevation we will cover, as part of the trek on Day 2, and esp on Day 3 and Day 4?

    Thanks

      Our Valley of flowers base is Joshimath or Govindghat and distance between Joshimath and Govindghat is around 20 Kms and take around 1 hour to travel.
      Ghangaria altitude is around 3000 Meters and trekking distance between Govindghat to Ghangaria is around 14 Kms.
