2/12/2017 to 7/12/2017

A 6 days trek in lap of nature

Uttrakhand, India !

Land of rivers and himalayas

People have fallen unconscious due to the heady scent of flowers, we do not know how much of that is true however the valley of flowers has a beauty which is unparalleled, and colours are straight out of a fantasy. It is said that in 1931, three British mountaineers lost their way from their expedition and happened upon a valley full of flowers, mesmerized by the beauty of it, they named it the ‘valley of flowers’.

These flowers bloom everywhere creating a colourful riot. Such is the beauty of the scene that on one side are these flower decked valley while on the other side are the snow clad mountains and a clear river runs through the middle of the valley. If perfect land does exist, then I am sure this must be it.

This blanket of flowers is beautifully visible in monsoons. Also, this well defined trek does not require any prior high altitude trek experience and therefore no age limit. The charming trek takes you along the lush green mountains and meadows of alpine endemic flowers. The trek can be tiresome but once you see the riot of blooming flowers, you know it’s worth the wait.

Hemkund sahib is an alpine clear water lake situated at 14,300ft. A clear water lake at such high altitude will give you an instant adrenaline rush. Not to mention the majestic mountain which surrounds this lake looks right out of a fantasy land.
