Experience Details

Valley of flowers is a place of great significance from time immemorial. Legends believe it to be the place from where Hanuman (from Ramayana Era) had collected the Sanjeevani Buti for curing Lakshmana in the Hindu Epic Ramayana. A world heritage site, the valley is situated at the convergence point of Himalayan ranges, Zanskar and Western and Eastern Himalayas. Bounded by the mountain ranges and glaciers, this place unfolds the charisma and charm of nature at its best. This bio-diversity hotspot is known for its scenic beauty comprising alpine shrubs and meadows, milky white streams, snow-clad peaks and pristine air.

More than 650 species of flowers grow in the valley. This richly diverse area is home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. The valley is also home to several fauna like Himalayan musk deer, yellow-throated marten, snow leopard, blue sheep, black and brown bears. In the words of P G Wodehouse “flowers are happy things”. This experience is also about soaking up; all the stories, the spiritual side of India and igniting your happiness quotient at the Valley of flowers.
