  1. Day1 Drive from Haridwar to Govindghat(6300ft)

    We begin the journey from Haridwar in a reserved jeep. No doubt, the panoramic view of the Himalayas are going to be enchanting for the next few days, but still you can have a last look at the plains of Rishikesh. We pass through the lush green mountains and deep down the slopes the Alaknanda river follows us all the way. We reach Joshimath by evening and halt for the night in a guest house and gear up for the next day.

  2. Day2 Trek from Govindghat to Ghangaria(9600ft)

    On a chilly morning we leave the comfort of Govindghat and we will begin our climb for Ghangaria. As we climb up, the river Lakshman Ganga, flows down below and comes closer to the level at which it flows. After steep climb, reaching Ghangaria feels like an achievement. After arrival at Ghangaria, explore the surroundings in the evening followed by dinner. Overnight stay in Ghangaria.

  3. Day3 Trek from Ghangaria to Valley of Flowers(11500ft)

    We start the trail and pass gently through a coniferous forest, before descending to a bridge, climbing up a rocky trail, with the forest behind us, the sight of the first flowers begin to appear. The valley is beautiful, and there are meadows of flowers as if it’s a dream locale. Himalayan Balsam, is the most predominant flower of the valley and a thick blanket of these flowers can be seen everywhere. After viewing the God’s natural beauty we start descending to Ghangaria. We spend the night in a guest house at Ghangaria.

  4. Day4 Trek from Ghangaria to Hemkund Sahib(15190ft)

    Today’s climb to Hemkund Sahib is steep at places and will take about 3 – 4 hrs. Hemkund Sahib is a popular Sikh Shrine built next to the beautiful lake. The lake is surrounded by wild flowers with Brahmkamal being the most popular. Pilgrims take a dip in the freezing cold waters of the lake, not an easy task. The hot tea served in the Gurudwara (shrine) is divine to say the least. We will also visit the Laxmanmandir next to the Gurudwara. Towards late afternoon head back to Ghangria. Overnight stay in Guest house.

  5. Day5 Trek from Ghangaria to Govindghat(6300ft)

    Next day in the morning, we start our downhill trek, back to Govindghat. The climb down is much easier. From Govindghat, drive to Joshimath and check into the guest house for some deserved rest and relaxation.If you desire, you can tour Auli in the evening.

  6. Day6 Drive from Govindghat to Haridwar

    Leave Govindghat early for your return journey. Arrive at Haridwar by evening and say goodbye to your trek mates. Valley of flower trek ends here.
