When we going to describe this Amazing and the Mysterious land only one word comes to mind "God's own land!" No other word can aptly to describe the wonderful Valley of Folowers. Hidden from the outside world and know only to some mountain inhabitants of the Bhyundar Valley, it was traditionally avoided by the sheopherds of the hills, believing it to be the celestial playground of the Gods, nymphs and fairies!
The mysterious valley was discovered by the British explorer , Botanist and mountaineer Frank S.Smythe, in 1931 while returing from Mt. Kamet expedition. His book "The Valley of Flowers" lifted the veil of this hidden beauty for the outside world.
An alpine valley formed by retreating by glaciers, whose movements through millions of years have shaken the hard roks beneath, forming a unique u-shapped valley. It houses some of the rarest flora and fauna, that have gone through the wonderful evolutionary process to adapt to the harsh georaphical and climatic conditions. It's one of India's most coveted national Natural Parks.
The Valley of Flowers really an irresistable wonder for nature loverls, botanists, ecologists, zoologists, ornithologist and trekkers.
