Set amidst majestic snow –clad mountains that stand in bold relief against the skyline, the Valley of Flowers is nearly 10 km in length, 2km in width and concave in shape. It is divided along its length by a small river called the Pushpawati and several tiny streams and waterfalls rush down from the glacial deposits to merge with it. The Pushpawati joins the Laxman Ganga, flowing from Hemkund Sahib at Ghangria. This combined stream retains the name Laxman Ganga till it meets Alaknanda at Govind Ghat.

A massive mountain mantled with snow and called Ghoradhungi , blocks the valley at the other end. There is however, a traditional route which passes across a glacial pass at an altitude Valley and eventually leads to Niti, the last Indian village on the border with Tibet.

Trail Overview

Valley of Flowers National Park

Lying  in the deep and higher rechers of the Pushpawati valley in Joshimath Garhwal Himalayas, Uttarakhand, India is this UNESCO World Heritage Site. A place which  is internationally renowned for its richly diverse alpine flora (including many species of medicinal plants), outstanding biodiversity and exquisite natural beauty.
Known in India as ‘Nandan Kanan’ since ancient times, Frank S. Smythe, a British mountaineer, reached this virgin landscape by chance, during his return from Kamet expedition. Awestruck by its pristine beauty and blooming meadows of alpine flowers, he named it as ‘Valley of Flowers’.
