About the Destination:

The Valley of Flower is a National Park located in the West Himalaya, in the state of Uttarakhand famous for its meadows of alpine flowers. This gentle landscape complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park to the east. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004.

The Valley of Flowers is nestled in the upper expanses of Bhyundar Ganga near Joshimath in Garhwal region. The lower reaches of Bhyundar Ganga near Gobindghat are known as Bhyundar Valley. The Valley of Flowers is in the Pushpawati valley 23 km north-northwest of Nanda Devi Park. The Valley is 20 km northwest of Nanda Devi National Park across the wide valley of the Bhyundar Ganga. It is one of two hanging valleys lying at the head of the Bhyundar valley, the other being the shorter Hemkund valley, which runs parallel some 10 km south. It runs east west approximately 15 km by an average of 6 km wide, in the basin of the Pushpawati River, a small tributary flowing from the Tipra glacier, which descends from Gauri Parbat in the east.

Situated at a height of over 15,000 feet above the sea level in the Himalayan ranges of northern India, Sri Hemkund Sahib has emerged as a popular Centre of Sikh Pilgrimage that is visited by thousands of devotees from all over the world every summer. According to Bachitra Natak, the autobiographical account of the tenth Guru, Gobind Singh, it was at Hemkund 'adorned with seven snow peaks' that he meditated in his previous birth.
