Valley of Flower Trek, It is rare to find a valley so full of flowers. The flowers are everywhere in myriad of colors: purple, yellow and white. They envelope the valley floor like a carpet so much that there are times when you cant see the valley at all. Yet, to see the flowers you need to time the trek right. In July and August when the monsoon is active is the best time to do the trek. There would be a day or two of rains on the trek but the sight of the flowers make up for any discomfort.


The most beautiful of all Himalayan flowers, the blue Primula can be seen blooming in thousands in the valley. The best time to see the valley in full bloom is from mid July to mid August.To reach the valley one has to trek from Govind Ghat, on the route to Hemkund Sahib, upto Ghangaria, 12 kms ahead.Few furlongs ahead of Ghangaria the trek route to the valley takes a detour towards left. The valley is about 5 kms from Ghangaria. The high altitude serine lake, known as Hemkund ( 4329 mts.) lies in heavenly environs. A steep trek from Ghangharia leads one to this spot in about four to six hours. It is an important pilgrimage for both Hindus and Sikhs, as well as for people from other faiths. There is a Sikh Gurudwara and a Lakshman temple built on the bank of the lake. Encircled by seven snow clad peaks and their associated glaciers, it reflects its surroundings enchantingly on its crystal clear serene waters. The glaciers from Hathi Parvat and Saptrishi peaks feed the lake and a small stream called Himganga flows out of this lake.

Max Altitude : 15,696 Feet.

Approx Trekking : 38 kms.
