I am always fascinated by the mighty mountains and especially find the Himalayas to be mystical. Then one day while chatting up with my trek mates, we suddenly decided to travel to the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand. I had heard so much about it and was thrilled to trek in the fabled garden of gods. Valley of Flowers is an alpine valley in the Nandadevi National Park in Uttarakhand. The park is a part of Nandadevi Biosphere Reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The richly diverse valley is home to rare and exquisite flowers. At least 500 studied varieties of wild flowers bloom here.
The Biosphere itself is a home to many elusive and endangered animal species including snow leopard, musk deer, red fox, and blue sheep.
