We visited Valley of Flowers with 4 of family members in July 2016 with Global Connect Hospitality. We arrived at Haridwar by train & stayed in pre-booked hotel, the hotel was good enough for one night stay. Next day early morning, we left hotel for Joshimath. Almost full day travel by Innova.
We got drop from Joshimath to Govind Ghat to start the trek for Ghangharia, which is moderate and can be done comfortably by anyone with normal fitness, the best thing was that entry ticket was pre-booked for us, it enables us to start early morning for the Valley. It took just 4 hours to reach the valley. Surrounding was amazing. At few points, the trek was wet and slippery. So, better to take walking sticks during the trekking.
We enjoyed there the beauty of the valley which was beyond our expectation & since none can stay at the valley in the night so we had returned back to Ghangharia at 4:30 PM.
It was certainly a whole life experience……thanks for everything arranged for the amazing trip!!
