Short and sweet leisure is a weekend getaway in the Valley of Flowers

 In our lives, there are certainly some beautiful chapters that cannot be described in words. For me, one of the chapters is the walk to Valley of flowers trek and Hemkund Sahib. This stunning paradise has been unknown for centuries in the "land of the gods" in the Chamoli region of Uttarakhand at an altitude of 3,600 m. When they visited Uttarakhand in 1931, the site was explored by British climbers and lost. Then they walked towards the magnificent valley full of flowers. For this reason, the magnificent valley receives the name of "Valley of the Flowers".

 was included in the list of national parks by the government of India in 1982 and was awarded the title of "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO in 2004. It also leads to Gurudwara Hemkund Sahib at an altitude of 4,320 m. The route to the valley.

 Now is the time to plan your vacation

 You can visit the valley from mid-May to September when thousands of colorful flowers will bloom in the area. Brahma Kamal, Snake Lily, Cobra Lily, and Blue Poppy are famous for 600 different flowers.

 The Valley of Flowers in Indian Mythology

 is said to be a land of joy and home to various Hindu gods. Some say it is Lord Indira’s garden, Nandan Kanan. Others believe that the devotee of Lord Rama, Hanuman, discovered here the magic herb Sanjeevani that resurrected the comatose Lakshmana. Unlike the locals, this is a fairy tale place.

 My flower language story: walk on the flower bed for 3 days.

 I am the type of person who wants to travel the world. But my plan for Huagu is an alternative to Kashmir. Each trip brings a unique experience in the most special way, allowing me to leave a mark on my heart and soul. When I visit the Valley of flowers trek and Hem Kund Sahib, I think "Dev Bhoomi" is still a paradise.

 From Delhi to Rishikesh, my journey began. Traveling through the lush green fields is simply fascinating. Gulshan Da Dhaba, Roorkee, I had breakfast. I met Triveni Ghat and took a bath in the Ganges. The next stop I stopped was Haridwar. I spent about 2 hours in this sacred land. The religious significance of the Haridwar way of life is interesting. After driving for two hours, I arrived in Rishikesh and had a cup of chai at the tea stall. I heard from them that on the same day, a landslide occurred in Govindghat. So I decided to stay in Rishikesh for just one night as suggested by the locals.

 I can get to Govindghat before noon, which is an adventure in itself before the trek starts. When local residents saw that the rocks on the road were clean after the landslide, I was trapped in Govindghat. Fortunately! The person in charge greeted my confusion and concerns with a stoic smile and, to some extent, successfully eased my concerns about arriving at Ghangaria, the base camp. My leader arrived on time. He also told me about the walking plan and told me that two people were going to walk with us.

 After staying longer in gurudwara, we started our journey to Ghangaria. The pleasure of visiting Gurudwara is always surprising, because it brings peace to a person's soul and is open to everyone, regardless of faith, caste or skin color. After 1 kilometer, they encouraged us to hand over the luggage to the walker because he thought we could never load it again. At Barsati Wali Chai ki Dukan, we enjoyed a cup of tea and the pagoda. The Ghangaria route runs mainly along the Lakshman Ganges River. I don't have to go up the mountain. This is a fairly uneventful hike.

 It's not just us, because hundreds of people ride horses and palkis. Also, along the way, we hypnotize beautiful streams, waterfalls, and lush green plants. During our hike to this magnificent beauty, we encountered small isolated villages, oak forests, and various species of animals and plants. We stayed one night at Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam, about 13 kilometers from Ghangaria.
