See millions of rare flowers including the Blue Poppy and Cobra Lily bloom amongst thousands of herbs and plants endemic to the area. Our ace naturalist who will be accompanying you on the trip will point these flowers out to you and explain their characteristics & significance in this incredible ecosystem.

The region is also home to some extremely rare and endangered species of animals like the Snow leopard, Asiatic black bear and the Blue sheep.

Valley of flowers was declared a national park in 1982 and is now a world heritage site. Every few days, in the months of July and August, the valley changes color. It takes after the predominant color of the flowers growing in the valley. The legend goes that the valley is inhabited by fairies, and why not, a place of such astounding beauty has to be the abode of fairies!
