Take a chance to do a once in a lifetime trek . The Valley of Flowers national park, part of the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, spreads over an area of 87.5 sq.km, with an altitude of 3,250 - 6750 m.

After the snows melt, over 300 species of flowers bloom, from mid July to September, changing almost daily. Apart from flowers, the valley is also the home of certain species of butterlies, the blue sheep, Himalayan bear, the Himalayan mouse hare and the snow leopard.The Valley of Flowers national park appeared on the tourist map only as early as 1931 when Frank Smythe a British tourist stumbled accross this valley when he lost his way, while returing back after sucessfully climbing Mt. Kamet. Thenational park starts from Ghanghria, but one reaches the main valley only after crossing the gorge and the stream starting from the Nar Parvat, 3kms from Ganghria.
