Introduction of Valley of Flowers Trek

Myths and legends encountered reality when British mountaineers, Eric Shipton, Romilly Holdsworth, and Frank Smythe, got lost and reached the Valley of Flowers – a true paradise. They went for the famous Mount Kamet expedition and entered the Bhyundar Valley during their sensational descent. The trio discovered this particular valley instead of arriving in the Mana Village.

According to the Hindu folklore, the Valley of Flowers is believed to be the garden of Lord Indra. It is, therefore, often called Nandan Kanan. A high valley sculpted due to the glacial action of Pushpawati River, and running in the east-west direction along the river. The Pandavas named the river Pushpawati when they caught sight of flowers moving on the waters.
