I and my sister had always planned for an adventurous trekking. When we heard about this trek we immediately took up this one and we are happy that we took such a one. Even though this trek was a very tough one, my sister helped me a lot on this trek. Our other co-trekkers were very socializing and so we enjoyed this trip as a gang. Food was good and the climate luckily turned out to be well. The budget friendly trek is what I am looking forward to take up in my near future.

When my family had planned for a trip to Rishikesh I dropped out of the trip thinking this is all old people trip place, but then I surfed and read about the places that are close to this destination, the Dayara Bugyal trek, surya top popped up on the screen and I was super excited seeing the images, I just changed my plan and took up this trip with my family. I always loved trekking and this place was a very unique trekking trail that I had ever seen in my life. Watching the villages and the surroundings from such a height is a rare thing that I can never forget. I thank my team of organizers who helped us all the way throughout the trek.

wao this heavenly place has many stories associated with it, like the british mountaineer discovered it and wrote his book valley of flowers, which is very famous among the international tourists. one woman name Miss Margaret Lague came to see this valley and ahe was tryinv to pluck a flower but unfortunately she got slipped and fell in the valley and died. in her memory there is a tombstone on hwr grave and all people who visits this valley of flowers must visit this tombstone. The local guide explores all other details of the flowers and the valley. Well it is a one day trip and people having time must come and witness the heaven on earth.

This is a perfect trip for someone who is looking to spend good quality time, who wants to see a mix of Glaciers and lush green vegetation. It indeed is my guarantee that people will make a lifetime memories here. Valley of Flowers, Hemkund Sahib and Badrinath where the former one is a pristine beauty and the latter ones are holy shrines. All these with a mix of happiness, adventure and surprise filled tour makes it really a complete trip. And with the responsible and experienced guides, nice and decent hotel accommodation makes it worth each penny you pay towards the trip. People have to understand the fact that being a place where every facility cannot be available, we have to adjust with whatever is available because of lack of transportation facilities from GovindGhat to Ghangria. But still it was better than what i have expected atleast.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trek to Kuari Pass and Pangarchulla Peak which are the two most important sights to be visited in the Himalayas. I never had a plan to visit the Himalayas last year. But my friend forced to do something really crazy during the Dussehra holidays and finally we found this package on many websites and enquired about it many ways. When we got to know about this trek we was really happy and got ready to be a part of it at the earliest. The Garhwal region is absolutely beautiful. There were a lot of peaks with different names and different altitudes that could be seen throughout our trekking trails. Pine forests were the other attractions. Green meadows had their own contribution in making the whole region look marvelous even from a distance. Professional photographers will not leave the place at any point I think. That’s how the nature blessed the area. It was a complete package of fun, entertainment, adventure and thrill. Along with trekking, we did camping too at some base points. Some of the native people were involved in their day to day activities like cattle rearing, cultivation etc. The villages locating before the trekking points are really beautiful with identical huts and houses. Some of the faces I cannot forget ever. The innocence I found there in the villages will be in my mind forever. I heard the local food from those houses is very tasty but we could not taste it since the organizers had a plan of preparing a fixed quantity of food in the morning and at night. For lunch we had Maggi or bread or roti. But when we reached Auli, we tried some tea and snacks from a shop nearby and liked the very much. The people were warm and pleasant to the visitors. I think they are the best people I ever met. Kuari pass and the nearby locations created an amazing bond with me. I wished my family also could come with me then. I am planning for another trip soon with my family members to Kuari Pass and some more places.

Two most unique places in North India perfect for trekking are Kuari Pass and Pangarchula Peak. The ravishing beauties located at the top most portions create some of the amazing sights to be witnessed and photographed. I selected this trek to explore the significant places around the Himalayas and watch the blend of natural elements in the right proportion. I was stunned to see these two locations. Both these places are ideal for backpacking trips. Solo travelers would be enjoying the challenging routes very well. If you are perfectly fit, then these two landscaped places should be visited at least once in a lifetime. I have gone there during the normal season without the snow cover and all. But still its beauty was indescribable. The lush greenery and the meadows are the highlights at these two locations. The trekking trails are challenging and filled with difficulties at times. But I have enjoyed the complete routes very well. I have an interest of writing down my travel experiences. After coming back I wrote the detailed description of this trek and I found it was more interesting than I ever imagined. The route from Auli to Khulara was the most beautiful stretch of the whole trek. The region is home to many bird species and sheep and cattle flocks. Since there are large meadows, shepherds come in groups to let their flocks of cattle graze so peacefully. That was a mesmerizing sight for me. Kuari Pass trek trails also have similar sights to visit.

I am very choosy about the places to visit because I am a corporate employee and I don’t want to waste my time and money at any place. Hence I have enquired about the good places to do trekking in North India and one of my colleagues and another friend of mine suggested to select the Himalayas. One of them suggested Dayara Bugyal which is a skiing place during winter. I thought then I will go for skiing at Dayara Bugyal but unfortunately I could not go last year. I waited for long and then I changed my plan and visited Dayara Bugyal during normal time. Trekking and camping were the options available at that time. To be frank, even trekking was amazing at this location as the places are at high altitude and the routes are bravely astounding. Forests, valleys, meadows, small streams, narrow paths, heights and so on. You will never get bored. I went with one of my friends from college. We joined a team of other 10 people at Hairdwar where the trip started. We visited different temples too on the way. Stay was arranged in hotels and at Barnala and Dayara Bugyal, we did camping. Oh my god, such a ravishing beauty. Both the places are apt for simple camping. The nature brings comfort at its best. Campfire kept us bonded through the nights. We shared a lot of experiences with each other. Played some games and had food together. A variety of beautiful moments came to us. The tour organizers were also with us. Three or four people. They were very careful about the food and accommodation and I am thankful to them for organizing the trip very beautifully. It was a moderate to challenging trek but I completely enjoyed it. The misty mornings were the most spectacular time throughout the tour. The tall peaks of the Himalayas were clearly visible during the trekking trip from the top of some of the hills and from Dayara Bugyal too. The exotic surrounding made me think not to go back home. Such a nice place it is.

No words to comment about the Valley of flowers. Except there was a situation when the tour was postponed the first time I booked, everything else regarding this trip was good. The group we joined was helpful. We shared water and food with each other. I found the food provided by the service providers not enough to conquer the challenges in front of us. Many of the times, we ate Maggi noodles which do not provide any nutrient. But we carried biscuits and energy bars. So, we were feeling better at the end of each day. To be true, Valley of Flowers is a must visit. During the season, we can see a lot of flowers even though the names are not familiar. Different colours will be all over the valley without showing the greenery. One of my friends who is a photographer clicked thousand photos I think. The tour organizers had one back up vehicle coming behind the trekking group. Anyway, continuously we could not climb the altitudes. We had to take several breaks in between. The seven day trip was full of energetic climbs and camping was also nice. Maggi, eggs, tea, rice and roti, dal etc were the food items provided by the service providers. At night, it was so cold and many of the team members fell sick and had to take medicines to continue the trip. Boots, jackets, warm clothes, altitude sickness preventive medicines etc should be carried any time you visit the Himalayas. And be fit before you head out to do trekking otherwise, you will be really tired. If you plan the trip according to your budget and time, Valley of Flowers trek can be the best team trip.

A trek to the valley of flowers was something I have been looking forward to do for a long time. Finally, it happened in this July. I am a regular trekker, but Valley of Flowers was a new experience apart from every other trekking expeditions I have done. I went alone there. The most important thing I noticed here is the number of people who come to visit the valley. There were old age people also who were more energetic than the youngsters. Bikers were also there, mostly Royal Enfiled riders. I did not book through any tour operator but alone. I heard that going with a guide will help us very much to know more about the place but still I decided to go alone and I planned it for one week. Hence I visited some other places in the Himalayas. From different websites I understood the things to be taken during the tour. July was not that cold and the snow cover was comparatively less. Yet the wind was slightly cold so that I had to wear jackets throughout. Valley of Flowers was really beautiful. I have not seen so many flowers as in the pictures of it found somewhere online yet there were a lot of meadows with different flowers. The surrounding was actually soothing. I took hundreds of photos in my mobile phone. The names of flowers I saw there were unknown to me but I enjoyed the beauty very well. Since I have gone in my bike, some portions were difficult for me to cross but still I sought help from some of the people I met on the road to get the correct direction. I went to Leh also after the trip. But I got to know that many of the troupes coming to visit the Valley of Flowers seek the help of different tour organizers to make the tour easy. I am also thinking to do an extensive Himalayan trip next time with the help of some tour organizers. Also, I recommend Valley of Flowers from the bottom of my hearts to everyone.

The trek to the valley of flowers was my first in the Himalayas although I had trekked a lot in the Western ghats. Overall it was easy as there was a well laid out path and lots of fellow trekkers of all ages although there were some minor problems in breathing and due to rain. The support provided by the organizers Hike to Himalayas was excellent. They advised on the outfits needed like shoes, ponchos and helped people shop for the missing items. The support provided by the guides was wonderful and we never felt lost or overcome by the situations. During our return from Badrinath to Joshimath, the road was blocked by landslide and we were forced to trek over a hill to reach the other side where vehicles were waiting for us. The only suggestion for improvement is to pre-allot the rooms at the hotels so that check-in formalities can be simplified. Also, the Himalaya Hotel at Ghangria may do well by cleaning the rooms in the evening. Overall, I was glad that I used their services rather than doing it on my own and it was worth it. Going through them also gave us several companions and our group was able to enjoy better together whereas going on our own would have been lonely and boring. The scenic views of the Himalayas and the valley of flowers were breathtaking. Some tourists complained that it was nothing like the unrealistic photoshopped images that you see on the internet/thrillophilia like advertisements but it is not the fault of the Himalayas !!.

The Chopta Chandrashila trail goes through paradise and you are marvelled at the scenic beauty of the place on each step. Be it the reflection of Chakumbha and adjoining mountains on Deoria Tal, the starry nights or the mountains basking in moonlight. On day 2 you go through forests blooming with rhododendrons and beautiful green meadows. The final trek to peak is majestic with walk through snow clad woods and elevated fields of snow. May is the time if you want greenery and December/January if you are looking for snow. Anybody fit enough to jog mile or two can take the trek.
