Of all the Himalayan meadows and flower valleys, nothing compares to Garhwal's unique rock garden, the Valley of Flowers, full of the most fascinating, fabulous, and rich variety of flowering herbs. According to the legends, the Valley of Flowers has been associated spiritually with the name of 'Hanuman',  the legendary hero of Ramayana, the great Indian epic.

First bought to limelight in 1931 when Frank Smythe, a British naturalist and mountaineer, who after scaling Kamet peak, stumbled upon it by chance. Later on, Smythe , assisted by  England’s eminent botanist R.L.Holdsworth, explored the valley extensively. Now, to restore the natural balance and conserve this natural heritage, the Valley of Flowers and its environs are declared as Pushpavati National Park. 

Enjoy 5 nights trip exploring the famous Valley of Flowers and Hemkund, one of the finest high altitude Himalayan lakes in the region.
