Heaven on earth

Visited the valley in the end of July. In contrast to Hemkund , here you have to trek along a rugged terrain but it is worth it. After trekking for about 4-5 kms you reach the starting point of the valley. Many people stroll about in this part and go back. Actually from this point you have to trek further amid myriad of flora and reach a point where there is a bifurcation. The other path leads to the glacier. Due to time constraint I could not visit the latter. However it was a lifetime experience. Many people seemed to be disappointed as they may have expected something of a flower show. Here you must enjoy nature in its pristine glory. Booked from LazyMonk Adventure at reasonable rate.
