What to enjoy there:- 

You are in the beautiful valley and that too which is surrounded by flowers from all sides is itself a piece of ice on the cake.

          However, this is not just what people come to trek here. The famous gurudwara of Hemkund Sahib is near this valley.

          Surrounded by the Garhwal Himalayas from all around, this is not a place on the earth but a real picture of heaven.

           The different colors of flowers give a resemblance to a rainbow and the soothing wind from the mountains fills the whole atmosphere with its fragrance.

           However, this place does not remain free from restrictions as it is a national park and UNESCO heritage site.

Prohibition to some activities in the valley of flowers:-

  • Camping is completely restricted as authorities fear that people will tamper with the floral variety that exists in this national park.
  • No animals are allowed in the valley as they will ruin the horticulture.
  • Roaming here and there without permission is also not allowed.
  • There is a strong check of authorities over you so don’t pluck the flowers.
  • Littering here is not allowed.

  There are restrictions by the authorities but people hardly follow them. Littering is a big menace in this beautiful valley and there should be a penalty system introduced by the authorities to stop this nuisance.

   The valley of flowers has its charm and thus the Uttarakhand government takes various steps to maintain its glory. Being responsible tourists and trekkers we should follow all the guidelines and rules to make our visit a memorable one.

   One thing should be kept in mind: the guide can only guide you the way but the beautiful memories are in your hand. Make your trek a safe and beautiful one. Try not to ruin the system if the state where you are a tourist as the place that belongs to you is also a place for others to enjoy.

    So have a safe trek in this beautiful valley of flowers.
