BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM:

 

A sprawling expanse of 87 square kilometres in the Chamoli District of Uttrakhand, Valley of Flowers is set in the backdrop of the majestic Himalayan Ranges. This virtual paradise on earth has been unknown to the outside world till the great Mountaineer Frank S Smith discovered it in the year 1931

 

A world heritage site, the valley is situated at a very remarkable area, which is the conversion point of Himalayan ranges of Western and Eastern Himalayas. This fairyland located in the high altitudes of Himalayas is protected by snowy mountains. Bounded by the magnificent mountain ranges and glittering glaciers, this place unfolds the charisma and charm of nature at its best.

 

Also witness the wildlife in national park: Lime Butterfly, gray langur, flying squirrel, Himalayan black bear, red fox, and Himalayan weasel.

 

The bloom starts immediately after the melting of snow. Different flowers bloom in different months but the peak blooming period is from mid-July to mid-August. Almost 300 species of wildflowers bloom here unhindered by mankind. The prominent species are Blue poppy, Brahmakamal, Campanula latifolia, Geranium, Morina long folio, Potentilla agrophylla, Potentilla cuneifolia, Saxifraga brunonis, Taraxacum officinale, Cremanthodium Arnicoides etc.
