The Valley of Flowers is situated in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district, around 300 kilometers north of Rishikesh (and close to Badrinath). The Valley of Flowers, with its untamed wildflowers surrounded by white peaks, is a World Heritage Site. Every year, it is open from June until September.
The valley of flowers, found by mountaineer Frank S. Smith in 1931, at the meeting point of the Western and Eastern Himalayas, Zanskar, and the Himalayas, has been designated a world heritage site for its wild, untamed blooming surrounded by snowy peaks. It is also said that Sanjivani was delivered to the sick Lakshmana by Hanuman from the valley of flowers, which is known for its diverse types of medicinal herbs. A perfect place to laze around the umpteen number of Himalayan waterfalls, streams, and paddocks and let the beauty of the place sink in.
