Valley of Flowers is a monsoon trek and the drive to Govind Ghat itself offers breathtaking rain-washed landscape as the swollen Alaknanda accompanies you. It is a pleasant walk among pilgrims (young and old alike who are heading to Hemkund Sahib) through lush greenery, streams and hill side hamlets. This Valley is a botanists delight. The entire valley is generally a carpet of colours – green, yellow, red, blue. The flowering pattern of the valley apparently changes every few days. While the flowers grow in abundance, these flowers are rare. It is surrounded by mountains with trees at lower levels, brown and grey soil in the middle and bright snow at the top!
