Day 1 - Govind Ghat to Ghangria (13Kms)

The trek traditionally starts from Govindghat but these days there is a possibility to reach Pulna and save a 3 Km hike from Govindaghat. However, the movement of taxis till Pulna is restricted and permits are given to an only limited number of vehicles. If you have a permit, then you can start from Pulna else start from Goindghat. The route from Govindghat to Pulna is on the tarmac and the gradient is easy. From here, take the well-marked cemented trail after crossing the bridge on river Alakhnanda. Govindghat has a Gurudwara & few hotels where one can stay.

The trail to Ghangaria is usually crowded with the pilgrims who are headed for Hemkund Sahib. There are trees of Apricot alongside the trail. The entire trail to Ghangaria winds along the river with cascading waterfalls & natural water springs which present a very refreshing sight. It takes about 6 hours to reach Ghangaria which is a small village lined with food joints & a Gurudwara. Stay overnight in Guest house/hotel in Ghangaria.

Day 2 - Ghangria to Valley of Flowers and back (10 Kms)

After breakfast trek to Valley of Flowers from Ghangaria. Start early to have more time at hand when you are in the Valley. After walking on the relatively flat trail till the bridge where we cross Pushpawati, the climb to the valley is steep. Fortunately, the climb is only around 1.5 Kms long before the valley dawns upon you. The valley is an enchanting sight with an impressive array of rare wildflowers. Some of the technical names of flowers found here are : Geranium, Marsh marigold, Prinula, Potentilla, Geum, Asters, Lilium, Ranunculus, Corydalis, Inula, Braham kamal, Campanula, Pedicularis, Arisaema, Morina, Impatiens, Bistorta, Ligularia, Anaphalis, Saxifrages, Sibbaldia, Thermo- psis, Trollius, Codonopsis, Dactylorhiza, Cypripedium, Strawberry, Epilobium, Rhododendrons and numerous others. Most of the flowers have medicinal values too.

We will walk for about 10 Kms in the Valley. The valley is normally carpeted with flowers of an array of colors: Green, Blue, Yellow, Red. In the far distance, you can see snow clad peaks. One of the attractions of the valley is a refreshing stream named Pushpawati, into which several tiny streams and waterfalls merge. Since the trek is fairly easy you will have sufficient time to relax & absorb the beauty of this wonderful place. Soak your feet in the stream & enjoy the sight. Camping in the Valley is not permitted so you will have to trek back to Ghangaria retracing the same route. Stay overnight at your hotel in Ghangaria.
