Overview

In this Valley of Flowers trek, you'll embark on a journey from Rishikesh to Joshimath/Pipalkoti, with the latter located at an altitude of 6,200 ft. The scenic drive on the Badrinath Highway lets you witness the beauty of the Panch Prayags, along with the picturesque Chamoli and Srinagar districts of Uttarakhand unfolding with every turn.

You'll be spending a night in Joshimath/Pipalkoti before starting the trek. The next day, you'll drive to Pulna village, which is the starting point for the Valley of Flower trek. The gradual ascent on rocky paths will lead you to Ghangaria village after almost 5 hours of trekking, during which you will attain an altitude of 10,000ft. All along the Pushpawati River will be flowing alongside you on the 9-kilometer uphill route.

As this trek route has many shops and dhabas, you'll have plenty of resources to get refreshments from and rest between treks. There are stairs for convenience as many pilgrims take this route to go to the Hemkund Sahib. Upon reaching the village, you can stay at guest houses.

The distance from Ghangaria to the Valley of Flowers is 4 Kilometers, and this part of the trail in the Valley of Flowers trek is easy because of the flat walk towards and through the valley.

In this itinerary of the Valley Of Flowers trek, you'll attain an altitude of 15,200 ft spread across a stretch of 42 km. During the course of five days, your trekking hours last up to 6 hours, and you gain an average altitude of 2000ft every day.

The valley stretches like a colorful carpet that is a blend of different hues, with green, yellow, and pink being the most prominent ones. The mountains overlook the valley, adding more charm to the picturesque scenery in front of you. Colorful blossoms of more than 300 species spread across the valley, ending only after 5 kilometers at a glacial point.

The Valley of Flowers trek is an easy to moderate trek that offers rare access to the Himalayan ranges in Uttarakhand. The valley itself is about 2 km wide and 8 km long. The temperature on the Valley of Flowers trek usually stays somewhere between 5 to 20 degrees Celsius, with chances of rainfall while trekking as the clouds are almost thick over the valley.

The trek from Ghangaria to Hemkund Sahib is the hardest part of the trek, making the difficulty level of the Valley of Flower trek increase from easy to moderate because of the altitude gain and steep ascents. However, the peaceful chants at Hemkund Sahib make all the efforts more worth it.

The beauty of the Valley of Flowers treks lies not just in the flowers but also in the fact that it attracts women from all over the world. The best time to do the Valley of Flowers trek is when spring arrives because only then do you get to see most of the flowers that adorn the vast expanse of Greenlands, making the trekking experience worth it.
